TINTON FALLS, N.J., Jan. 22 /PRNewswire/ -- Mercury Solar Systems, one of the leading solar integrators on the East Coast, today announced that it has partnered with SunRun, the nation's leading residential solar company, to deliver New Jersey homeowners affordable solar power.

Jared Haines, President, Mercury Solar Systems, said, "New Jersey homeowners can now make a minimal upfront investment to enjoy clean electricity. We believe this partnership is a breakthrough approach to making solar very affordable and hassle free for any homeowner and are honored that SunRun has selected Mercury to design and install its customer systems."

With SunRun, homeowners will get solar panels installed for as little as $500, and then pay a low fixed rate every month for the solar electricity, allowing them to save money while enjoying clean electricity.  The monthly solar payments for a typical three-or four-bedroom home in New Jersey start at $50 per month. All SunRun customers receive an annual money-back performance guarantee in addition to professional-grade monitoring, maintenance, repairs, and insurance, making it simpler than ever to get clean electricity.  

Mr. Haines continued, "The signing of the Solar Energy Advancement Act into law on Monday reaffirms New Jersey's long-term commitment to solar power and we look forward to helping the state generate 2,164 GWh of solar power by 2020, or about 3% of its total electricity needs."

Mercury Solar Systems' parent company, Mercury Energy, acquired NJ-based Energy Enterprises in August 2008. To date, the company has installed nearly 12% of the residential and commercial solar energy system installs in New Jersey based on a recent report by the New Jersey Board of Utilities.

Homeowners can contact Mercury Solar Systems at 877-6-GETSUN for more information on going solar and the SunRun program.
