Highlights of Management Discussion and Risk Factors in 10-K/10-Q filling

We believe Sunrun will be uniquely positioned as the leading national provider of solar and storage energy subscription offerings, making our clean energy services more accessible to even more communities.
Robust storage offerings will enable a variety of grid services and grid reliability benefits.
The solar energy systems that are operational are expected to generate a positive return rate over the term of the Customer Agreement, typically 20 or 25 years.
In sum, we believe the electrification of the U.S. economy with renewable energy presents an unprecedented economic opportunity, as well as our country’s best path to achieving net zero emissions by 2050.
This low cost of capital enables us to offer attractive pricing to our customers for the energy generated by the solar energy system on their homes.
Additionally, we believe our omni-channel model and geographic reach provides us with the capabilities to execute on these opportunities in a variety of markets.
These assets are attractive to fund investors due to the long-term, recurring nature of the cash flows generated by our Customer Agreements, the high credit scores of our customers, the fact that energy is a non-discretionary good and our low loss rates.
Using our proprietary technology, we target homes with advantageous revenue and cost characteristics, which means we are often able to offer pricing that allows customers to save more on their energy bill while maintaining our ability to meet our targeted returns.
We believe the electrification of U.S. households with renewable energy, and the accompanying development of an inter-connected, smart grid will provide a number of market opportunities beyond our traditional solar and battery storage offerings, including EV chargers, battery retrofits, re-powered or expanding systems, home energy management services, and other home electrification products.
Revenue from solar energy systems sales increased by $442.6 million compared to the prior year primarily due to an overall increased demand for solar energy systems in the marketplace, particularly through retail partners.
In addition, fund investors can receive attractive after-tax returns from our investment funds due to their ability to utilize 55Commercial ITCs, accelerated depreciation and certain government or utility incentives associated with the funds’ ownership of solar energy systems.
Sunrun’s next goal and chapter of growth is to be the go-to company for clean 54energy and storage solutions, and reliable home electrification, providing our customers with affordable renewable energy throughout their homes and our communities with a cleaner, more resilient grid.
Product sales increased by $112.4 million compared to the prior year primarily due to an overall increased demand for solar energy related products and services in the marketplace, and to a lesser extent, price increases on various solar products sold to resellers.
Through these electrification, storage, and grid services opportunities, we aim to be the consumer brand synonymous with repowering our customers’ homes with renewable energy and providing a pathway to a cleaner, healthier future.
For example, with the insights provided by our technology, we can offer competitive pricing to customers with homes that have favorable characteristics, such as roofs that allow for easy installation, high electricity consumption, or low shading, effectively passing through the cost savings we are able to achieve on these installations to the customer.
In collaboration with grid managers, we can deploy our battery systems where they will add the most value for utilities, the grid, and customers.
Through this partnership, customers in participating markets have the opportunity to install a solar and battery system on their home, enabling them to power their household with clean, affordable energy and charge their truck with the power of the sun.
They will also play a crucial role in markets like California where time-of-use and net-billing policies mean that optimizing when power is consumed during the day is key to providing the most customer value.
The Opportunity of Home Electrification and Storage Solutions to Build a Clean, Resilient GridThe United States is on the precipice of a once-in-a-generation transformation of our energy system.
Factors that could cause or contribute to such differences include those identified below and those discussed in the section titled “Risk Factors” included elsewhere in this Annual Report on Form 10-K.We provide clean, solar energy to customers at a significant savings compared to traditional utility energy.
The Cost of solar energy systems and product sales increased to 88% of solar energy systems and product sales revenue during 2022, when compared with 85% in the prior year period, primarily as a result of increased demand for solar energy related products and services in the marketplace.
We are actively delivering demand response and capacity services to meet operational needs in multiple geographies, and partnering with grid managers to build a more resilient electricity system that integrates the new energy technologies customers want.
Additionally, the average price of system sales increased 12% from the prior year period.
We also believe that energy storage offerings will play an increasingly important role and be a key part of the customer value proposition.
We also continue to pursue the development of our grid services business, creating virtual power plants that lead to a cleaner, more resilient grid.
The $147.1 million increase in Revenue from Customer Agreements was primarily due to new systems placed in service in 2022 and a full year of revenue recognized in 2022 for systems placed in service in 2021 versus only a partial amount of such revenue related to the period in which the assets were in service in 2021.
Our estimated production shortfall reduced revenue during the twelve months ended December 31, 2022 by less than $6.2 million more than the prior year's period.
Factors that could impact Gross Earning Assets include, but are not limited to, customer payment defaults, or declines in utility rates or early termination of a contract in certain circumstances, including prior to installation.
Throughout fiscal 2022, we observed market uncertainty, increasing inflationary pressures, supply constraints and the ongoing and rippling effects from the COVID-19 pandemic.
Circumstances that could indicate impairment and require us to perform a quantitative impairment test include a significant decline in our financial results, a significant decline in our enterprise value relative to our net book value, a sustained decline in our stock price, or an unanticipated change in competition or our market share and a significant change in our strategic plans.
Factors that we consider in deciding when to perform an impairment review would include significant negative industry or economic trends, and significant changes or planned changes in our use of the assets.
We face global macroeconomic challenges, particularly in light of increases and volatility in interest rates, uncertainty in markets, inflationary trends, navigating complex and evolving regulatory and tax frameworks, and the dynamics of the global trade environment.
Changes in economic conditions could result in higher interest rates, thereby increasing our interest expense and operating expenses and reducing funds available for capital investments, operations and other purposes.
If financing is not available to us on acceptable terms if and when needed, we may be required to reduce planned spending, which could have a material adverse effect on our operations.
