A Message from Our CEO.jpg
Dear Fellow Stockholders,
We cordially invite you to attend the 2024 annual meeting of stockholders (the “Annual Meeting”) of Sunrun Inc., a Delaware corporation, which will be held exclusively online via a live audio-only webcast on Tuesday, June 18, 2024 at 8:30 a.m. Pacific Time.
Over the past year, I am grateful to have had the opportunity to discuss our financial and operating performance and strategic priorities with many of our stockholders. We have made significant progress advancing our mission of providing clean, affordable and reliable energy as we remain disciplined in how we operate; focusing on sustainable growth and prioritizing unit margins and cash generation capabilities. In 2023, we continued to adapt to the new interest rate environment by optimizing our pricing and product mix along with our routes to market and geographic mix. Throughout the year, we made numerous strides, all while adapting to regulatory changes in California and transitioning to a storage-first company. This transition not only provides customers with the best pro-consumer offering in terms of resiliency, but also establishes a foundation of energy resources which can provide value to the grid in the years to come.
Your feedback as stockholders matters tremendously to us and underpins the decisions we make as a Board. This was especially true in 2023, as we conducted an even deeper level of stockholder engagement and took actions directly in response to your feedback. Below is a summary of the key feedback we received and how we responded:
What we heard - what we did.jpg
These are just a few of the key changes we made in response to stockholder feedback, and these and others are described further throughout this proxy statement. Most importantly, we are eager to provide a detailed background on why we decided to grant the Stockholder Vision Alignment PSU following last year’s annual stockholder meeting, and how we structured the award to align with key stockholder priorities that we heard from you during our stockholder engagement efforts and at last year’s annual stockholder meeting.
At this year’s meeting, we will vote on the election of our Class III directors, and the ratification of the selection of Ernst & Young LLP as our independent registered public accounting firm. We will also conduct a non-binding advisory vote

Who is entitled to vote?
Holders of our common stock as of the close of business on April 19, 2024, the record date for the Annual Meeting, will be entitled to notice of and to vote at the Annual Meeting. A list of stockholders entitled to vote at the close of business on the record date will be available at our headquarters, 600 California Street, Suite 1800, San Francisco, California 94108, for 10 days prior to the annual meeting to registered stockholders for any legally valid purpose related to the Annual Meeting. For additional information or to schedule an appointment to view the stockholder list during such period, please contact us at investors@sunrun.com.
Registered Stockholders. If on April 19, 2024, shares of our common stock are registered directly in your name with our transfer agent, you are considered the stockholder of record with respect to those shares and the Notice was provided
Sunrun Inc. — 2024 Proxy Statement

Table of Contents
to you directly by us. As the stockholder of record, you have the right to grant your voting proxy directly to the individuals listed on the proxy card or vote in person during the Annual Meeting. Throughout this proxy statement, we refer to these registered stockholders as “stockholders of record.”
Street Name Stockholders. If on April 19, 2024, shares of our common stock are held on your behalf in a stock brokerage account, or by a bank, trustee or other nominee, you are considered the beneficial owner of shares held in “street name,” and the Notice was forwarded to you by your broker or nominee, who is considered the stockholder of record with respect to those shares. As the beneficial owner, you have the right to direct your broker, bank, trustee, or other nominee as to how to vote your shares and are also invited to attend the Annual Meeting. Please follow the instructions provided by your broker, bank, trustee, or other nominee as to how to vote your shares. Throughout this proxy statement, we refer to stockholders who hold their shares through a broker, bank, trustee, or other nominee as “street name stockholders.”
What constitutes a quorum for the Annual Meeting?
A quorum is required for stockholders to conduct business at the Annual Meeting. The presence, in person or represented by proxy, of the holders of a majority of the outstanding shares of our common stock is necessary to establish a quorum at the meeting. As of the close of business on the record date, there were 221,661,331 shares of our common stock outstanding. Shares present, in person or represented by proxy, including shares as to which authority to vote on any proposal is withheld, shares abstaining as to any proposal and broker non-votes (where a broker submits a properly executed proxy but does not have authority to vote a stockholder’s shares) on any proposal will be considered present at the meeting for purposes of establishing a quorum.
How many votes do I have?
In deciding all matters at the Annual Meeting, each stockholder will be entitled to one vote for each share of our common stock held by them on the record date. Stockholders are not permitted to cumulate votes with respect to the election of directors.
How many votes are needed to approve each proposal?
Proposal No. 1: The election of our Class III directors requires a plurality vote of the shares of our common stock present virtually or represented by proxy at the Annual Meeting and entitled to vote. “Plurality” means that the nominees who receive the largest number of votes cast “FOR” are elected as directors. Any shares not voted “FOR” a particular nominee (as a result of stockholder abstention or a broker non-vote) will not be counted in such nominee’s favor and will have no effect on the outcome of the election. You may vote “FOR” or “WITHHOLD” on each of the nominees.
Proposal No. 2: The approval, on an advisory basis, of the compensation of our named executive officers requires the affirmative vote of a majority of the shares of our common stock present virtually or represented by proxy at the Annual Meeting and entitled to vote. Abstentions are considered votes present and entitled to vote on this proposal, and thus, will have the same effect as a vote “AGAINST.” Broker non-votes will have no effect on the outcome of this proposal.
Proposal No. 3: The ratification of the appointment of Ernst & Young LLP requires the affirmative vote of a majority of the shares of our common stock present virtually or represented by proxy at the Annual Meeting and entitled to vote. As described in Proposal No. 2 above, an abstention will have the same effect as a vote “AGAINST” and broker non-votes will have no effect.

How do I vote?
If you are a stockholder of record, there are four ways to vote:
By Internet: You may submit a proxy over the Internet by following the instructions at www.proxyvote.com, 24 hours a day, seven days a week, until 11:59 p.m. Eastern Time the day before the Annual Meeting (have your Notice or proxy card in hand when you visit the website);
By Toll-free Telephone: You may submit a proxy by calling (800) 690-6903, 24 hours a day, seven days a week, until 11:59 p.m. Eastern Time the day before the Annual Meeting (have your Notice or proxy card in hand when you call);
By Mail: You may complete, sign, and mail your proxy card (if you received printed proxy materials) which must be received by us no later than the day before the Annual Meeting; or
By Completing an Online Ballot at the Annual Meeting: You may attend the Annual Meeting virtually by visiting www.virtualshareholdermeeting.com/RUN2024 and complete an online ballot at the Annual Meeting. Please have your 16-digit control number previously provided to you in your proxy materials and the meeting password.
Even if you plan to attend the Annual Meeting virtually via the Internet, we recommend that you also vote by proxy so that your vote will be counted if you later decide not to attend.
If you are a street name stockholder, you will receive voting instructions from your broker, bank, trustee, or other nominee. You must follow the voting instructions provided by your broker, bank, trustee, or other nominee in order to instruct your broker or other nominee on how to vote your shares. Street name stockholders should generally be able to vote by returning an instruction card, by telephone or by Internet. However, the availability of telephone and Internet voting will depend on the voting process of your broker or other nominee. As discussed above, if you are a street name stockholder, you may not vote your shares during the Annual Meeting unless you obtain a legal proxy from your broker, bank, trustee or other nominee.
Assistance and Additional Information
If you need assistance with submitting a proxy to vote your shares via the Internet, by telephone or by completing your Sunrun proxy card, or have questions regarding the virtual annual meeting, please contact MacKenzie Partners, the proxy solicitor for Sunrun, at (800) 322-2885 (toll-free for stockholders), (212) 929-5500 (collect for banks and brokers) or proxy@mackenziepartners.com.
Can I change my vote after submitting my proxy?
Yes. If you are a stockholder of record, you can change your vote or revoke your proxy any time before the Annual Meeting in any one of the following ways:
You may enter a new vote by Internet or by telephone until 11:59 p.m. Eastern Time the day before the Annual Meeting;
You may submit another properly completed proxy card by mail with a later date, which must be received by us no later than the day before the Annual Meeting;
You may send written notice that you are revoking your proxy to our Corporate Secretary at Sunrun Inc., 600 California Street, Suite 1800, San Francisco, CA 94108, which must be received by us no later than the day before the Annual Meeting; or

provided to you in your proxy materials and the meeting password. If you are a street name stockholder, your broker or nominee can provide you with instructions on how to change your vote.
What do I need to do to attend the virtual Annual Meeting?
Access to the virtual meeting will begin at 8:15 a.m. Pacific Time on Tuesday, June 18, 2024.
Registered Stockholders. If on April 19, 2024, shares of Sunrun common stock were registered directly with your name with AST, our transfer agent, you can attend the virtual Annual Meeting by visiting www.virtualshareholdermeeting.com/RUN2024 and entering the 16-digit control number previously provided to you in your proxy materials.
Street Name Stockholders. If on April 19, 2024, shares of Sunrun common stock were held on your behalf in a stock brokerage account, or by a bank, trustee, or other nominee, you can attend the virtual Annual Meeting by visiting www.virtualshareholdermeeting.com/RUN2024 and entering the 16-digit control number previously provided to you in your proxy materials. Street name stockholders who wish to attend the meeting but did not receive a 16-digit control number from their bank or brokerage firm, should follow the instructions from their bank or brokerage firm, including any requirement to obtain a legal proxy. Most brokerage firms or banks allow a stockholder to obtain a legal proxy either online or by mail.
The virtual Annual Meeting website will be active fifteen minutes prior to the start of the meeting and stockholders are encouraged to log in to the meeting early. Only stockholders who have a 16-digit control number may attend the meeting and vote during the meeting. Stockholders experiencing technical difficulties accessing the meeting may call the support number which appears on the login page.
Why are you holding a virtual Annual Meeting?
We have adopted a virtual meeting format for our Annual Meeting to provide a consistent experience to all stockholders regardless of geographic location. We believe this is an important step both to enhance stockholder access and engagement and to reduce the environmental impact of our Annual Meeting.
What is the effect of giving a proxy?
Proxies are solicited by and on behalf of our Board. Our Board has designated Mary Powell, Danny Abajian, and Jeanna Steele as proxy holders. When proxies are properly dated, executed and returned, the shares represented by such proxies will be voted at the Annual Meeting in accordance with the instructions of the stockholder. If no specific instructions are given, however, the shares will be voted in accordance with the recommendations of our Board as described under “What matters am I voting on and how does the Board recommend I vote on these proposals?” above. If any matters not described in this proxy statement are properly presented at the Annual Meeting, the proxy holders will use their own judgment to determine how to vote the shares. If the Annual Meeting is adjourned to a later date, the proxy holders can vote the shares on the new Annual Meeting date as well, unless you have properly revoked your proxy instructions before the new date, as described above.
Why did I receive a Notice of Internet Availability of Proxy Materials instead of a full set of proxy materials?
In accordance with the rules of the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”), we have elected to furnish our proxy materials, including this proxy statement and our annual report, primarily via the Internet. The Notice containing instructions on how to access our proxy materials is first being mailed on or about April 29, 2024. Stockholders may receive materials in printed form by mail or electronically by email by following the instructions contained in the Notice. We encourage stockholders to take advantage of the availability of our proxy materials on the Internet to help reduce the environmental impact of our annual meetings of stockholders.

Table of Contents
How are proxies solicited for the Annual Meeting and who will bear the cost of this solicitation?
Our Board is soliciting proxies for use at the Annual Meeting. All expenses associated with this solicitation will be borne by us. We will reimburse brokers or other nominees for reasonable expenses that they incur in sending our proxy materials to you if a broker or other nominee holds shares of our common stock on your behalf. In addition, our directors and employees may also solicit proxies in person, by telephone, or by other means of communication. Our directors and employees will not be paid any additional compensation for soliciting proxies. We have also retained MacKenzie Partners as our proxy solicitor to assist in the solicitation of proxies for the Annual Meeting and have agreed to pay a fee of $16,500 for these services.
How may my brokerage firm or other nominee vote my shares if I fail to provide timely directions?
Brokerage firms and other nominees, for example, banks or agents, holding shares of our common stock in street name for their customers are generally required to vote such shares in the manner directed by their customers. In the absence of timely directions, your broker will have discretion to vote your shares on Proposal No. 3, our sole “routine” matter, but brokers and nominees cannot use their discretion to vote “uninstructed” shares with respect to matters that are considered “non-routine.” “Non-routine” matters are matters that may substantially affect the rights or privileges of stockholders, such as mergers, stockholder proposals, election of directors (even if not contested), executive compensation (including any advisory stockholder votes on executive compensation and on the frequency of stockholder votes on executive compensation), and certain corporate governance proposals, even if they are management supported. Accordingly, your broker or nominee may not vote your shares on Proposals Nos. 1 or 2 without your instructions, but may vote your shares on Proposal No. 3.
Where can I find the voting results of the Annual Meeting?
We will announce preliminary voting results at the Annual Meeting. We will also disclose voting results on a Current Report on Form 8K (“Form 8-K”) that we will file with the SEC within four business days after the Annual Meeting. If final voting results are not available to us in time to file a Form 8K within four business days after the Annual Meeting, we will file a Form 8K to publish preliminary results and will provide the final results in an amendment to the Form 8K as soon as they become available.
What is the deadline for stockholders to propose actions for consideration at next year’s annual meeting of stockholders or to nominate individuals to serve as directors?
Stockholder Proposals
Stockholders may present proper proposals for inclusion in our proxy statement and for consideration at the next annual meeting of stockholders by submitting their proposals in writing to our Corporate Secretary in a timely manner. For a stockholder proposal to be considered for inclusion in our proxy statement for our 2025 annual meeting of stockholders, the proposal must be mailed to us, and our Corporate Secretary must receive the written proposal at our principal executive offices not later than close of business (5:00 p.m. Pacific Time) on December 30, 2024. In addition, stockholder proposals must comply with the requirements of Rule 14a-8 regarding the inclusion of stockholder proposals in company-sponsored proxy materials. Stockholder proposals should be addressed to: Sunrun Inc., Attention: Corporate Secretary, 600 California Street, Suite 1800, San Francisco, CA 94108.
Our amended and restated bylaws also establish an advance notice procedure for stockholders who wish to present a proposal before an annual meeting of stockholders but do not intend for the proposal to be included in our proxy statement. Our amended and restated bylaws provide that the only business that may be conducted at an annual meeting of stockholders is business that is (i) specified in our proxy materials with respect to such meeting, (ii) otherwise properly brought before such meeting by or at the direction of our Board, or (iii) properly brought before such meeting by a stockholder of record entitled to vote at the annual meeting who has delivered timely written notice to our Corporate

•    the 90th day prior to our 2025 annual meeting of stockholders; or
•    the 10th day following the day on which public announcement of the date of our 2025 annual meeting of stockholders is first made.
If a stockholder who has notified us of his, her or its intention to present a proposal at an annual meeting does not appear to present his, her or its proposal at such annual meeting, we are not required to present the proposal for a vote at such annual meeting.
Sunrun will not consider any proposal or nomination that is not timely or otherwise does not meet the requirements of our amended and restated bylaws and SEC regulations. We reserve the right to reject, rule out of order, or take other appropriate action with respect to any proposal that does not comply with these and other applicable requirements.
Nomination of Director Candidates
You may propose director candidates for consideration by our Nominating, Governance, and Sustainability Committee. Any such recommendations should include the nominee’s name and qualifications for membership on our Board and should be directed to our Corporate Secretary at the address set forth above. For additional information regarding stockholder recommendations for director candidates, see “Considerations in Evaluating Director Nominees—Stockholder Recommendations for Nominations to the Board of Directors.”
As noted in our amended and restated bylaws and in accordance with the universal proxy rules, stockholders may nominate directors for election at an annual meeting of stockholders. To nominate a director, the stockholder must provide the information required by our amended and restated bylaws. In addition, the stockholder must give timely notice to our Corporate Secretary in accordance with our amended and restated bylaws, which, in general, require that the notice be received by our Corporate Secretary within the time periods described above under “Stockholder Proposals” for stockholder proposals that are not intended to be included in a proxy statement.
Universal Proxy
In addition to satisfying the foregoing requirements under our amended and restated bylaws, to comply with the universal proxy rules, stockholders who intend to solicit proxies in support of director nominees other than our Board’s nominees must provide notice that sets forth any additional information required by Rule 14a-19 under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”) no later than April 18, 2025.
Availability of Amended and Restated Bylaws
A copy of our amended and restated bylaws is available on our website at www.sunrun.com on the “Governance Documents” page under the “Investors – Corporate Governance” section. You may also contact our Corporate Secretary at our principal executive offices for a copy of the relevant bylaw provisions regarding the requirements for making stockholder proposals and nominating director candidates.

Proposal #1.jpg
Our Board is currently composed of nine members. In accordance with our Amended and Restated Certificate of Incorporation (“Restated Certificate”), our Board is currently divided into three staggered classes of directors. At the Annual Meeting, three Class III directors will be elected for a two-year term.
Each director’s term continues until the election and qualification of his or her successor, or such director’s earlier death, resignation, or removal. Any increase or decrease in the number of directors will be distributed among the three classes so that, as nearly as possible, each class will consist of one-third of our directors. At our 2023 annual meeting of stockholders, the stockholders voted to amend our Restated Certificate to phase out the classification of our Board over a three-year period such that beginning at the election of directors at the 2026 annual meeting of stockholders, all directors will be annually elected for a one-year term.
Nominees
Our Nominating, Governance, and Sustainability Committee has recommended, and our Board has approved Katherine August-deWilde, Sonita Lontoh, and Gerald Risk as nominees for election as Class III directors at the Annual Meeting. If elected, Ms. August-deWilde, Ms. Lontoh, and Mr. Risk will serve as Class III directors until our 2026 annual meeting of stockholders. Ms. August-deWilde, Ms. Lontoh, and Mr. Risk are currently directors of our company. For information concerning the nominees, please see the section titled “Directors, Executive Officers, and Corporate Governance.”
If you are a stockholder of record and you sign your proxy card or vote by telephone or over the Internet but do not give instructions with respect to the voting of directors, your shares will be voted “FOR” the election of Ms. August-deWilde, Ms. Lontoh, and Mr. Risk. We expect that each of Ms. August-deWilde, Ms. Lontoh, and Mr. Risk will accept such nomination; however, in the event that a director nominee is unable or declines to serve as a director at the time of the Annual Meeting, the proxies will be voted for any nominee designated by our Board to fill such vacancy. If you are a street name stockholder and you do not give voting instructions to your broker or nominee, your broker will leave your shares unvoted on this matter.

Vote Required
The election of directors requires a plurality vote of the shares of our common stock present virtually or by proxy at the Annual Meeting and entitled to vote thereon to be approved. Broker non-votes and abstentions will have no effect on this proposal.

Director Independence
Our common stock is listed on Nasdaq, and under the listing standards of Nasdaq, independent directors must comprise a majority of a listed company’s board of directors, as affirmatively determined by such company’s board. In addition, the Nasdaq listing standards require that, subject to specified exceptions, each member of a listed company’s audit, compensation, and nominating, governance, and sustainability committees be independent. Under the Nasdaq
Sunrun Inc. — 2024 Proxy Statement

Table of Contents

listing standards, a director will only qualify as an “independent director” if, in the opinion of that listed company’s board, that director does not have a relationship that would interfere with the exercise of independent judgment in carrying out the responsibilities of a director.
Audit committee members must also satisfy the additional independence criteria set forth in Rule 10A-3 under the Exchange Act, and the Nasdaq listing standards. Members of the compensation committee of our board of directors (“Compensation Committee”) must also satisfy the additional independence criteria set forth in Rule 10C-1 under the Exchange Act and the Nasdaq.
Our Board has undertaken a review of the independence of each of our directors. Based on information provided by each director concerning his or her background, employment and affiliations, our Board has determined that directors Ms. August-deWilde, Mr. Dach, Mr. Ferber, Ms. Lontoh, Mr. Risk, and Ms. Talreja, do not have a relationship that would interfere with the exercise of independent judgment in carrying out the responsibilities of a director and that each of these directors is “independent” as that term is defined under the Nasdaq listing standards. In making these determinations, our Board considered the current and prior relationships that each non-employee director has with the Company and all other facts and circumstances our Board deemed relevant in determining their independence, including the beneficial ownership of our capital stock by each non-employee director.
Board Leadership Structure and Lead Independent Director
Our Corporate Governance Guidelines require that if we do not have an independent chairperson then we will appoint a Lead Independent Director. Mr. Fenster and Ms. Jurich currently serve as Co-Executive Chairs and directors of the Company, and Mr. Ferber currently serves as our Lead Independent Director.
Our Board believes that it can benefit from each of Mr. Fenster’s and Ms. Jurich’s years of experience as founders and executives of the Company. Mr. Fenster and Ms. Jurich each possess detailed in-depth knowledge of the issues, opportunities, and challenges facing the Company and the broader solar industry.
Our Board believes that the current Board leadership structure, with a strong emphasis on Board independence, allows our management team to focus on our day-to-day business while allowing the Lead Independent Director to lead our Board in its fundamental role of providing independent advice to, and oversight of, management. In addition, as described below, our Board has three standing committees, each member of which is an independent director. Our Board delegates substantial responsibility to each committee of the Board, which reports their activities and actions back to the full Board. We believe that the independent committees of our Board are an important aspect of the leadership structure of our Board.
Board Meetings and Committees
During our fiscal year ended December 31, 2023, our Board held five meetings (including regularly scheduled and special meetings). During fiscal year 2023, each of our directors attended at least 75% of the meetings of the Board and committees on which he or she served as a member.
Although we do not have a formal policy regarding attendance by members of our Board at annual meetings of stockholders, we strongly encourage our directors to attend. All then-serving members of our Board attended our 2023 annual meeting of stockholders.
Our Board has established an Audit Committee, a Compensation Committee, and a Nominating, Governance, and Sustainability Committee. The composition and responsibilities of each of the three committees of our Board is described below. Members will serve on these committees until their resignation or until as otherwise determined by our Board.

Considerations.jpg
Our Nominating, Governance, and Sustainability Committee uses a variety of methods for identifying and evaluating director nominees. In its evaluation of director candidates, our Nominating, Governance, and Sustainability Committee will consider the current size and composition of our Board and the needs of our Board and the respective committees of our Board. Some of the other qualifications that our Nominating, Governance, and Sustainability Committee considers include, without limitation, issues of character, integrity, judgment, independence, areas of expertise, corporate experience, length of service, potential conflicts of interest, and other commitments. Nominees must also have the ability to offer advice and guidance to our Chief Executive Officer based on past experience in positions with a high degree of responsibility and be leaders in the companies or institutions with which they are affiliated. Director candidates must have sufficient time available in the judgment of our Nominating, Governance, and Sustainability Committee to perform all board of director and applicable committee responsibilities. Members of our Board are expected to prepare for, attend, and participate in all board of director and applicable committee meetings. Other than the foregoing, there are no stated minimum criteria for director nominees, although our Nominating, Governance, and Sustainability Committee may also consider such other factors as it may deem, from time to time, are in our and our stockholders’ best interests.
Although our Board does not maintain a specific policy with respect to board diversity, our Board believes that our Board should be a diverse body, and our Nominating, Governance, and Sustainability Committee considers a broad range of backgrounds and experiences. The Nominating, Governance, and Sustainability Committee is committed to diversity on our Board and takes into account the personal characteristics, skills, expertise, and experience of current and prospective directors, such as ethnicity, gender, race, and membership in another underrepresented community, to ensure the representation of a variety and range of perspectives on our Board and encourage effective performance of its governance role and oversight of the execution of our strategy. Our Nominating, Governance, and Sustainability Committee also considers these and other factors as it oversees the annual board of director and committee evaluations. After completing its review and evaluation of director candidates, our Nominating, Governance, and Sustainability Committee recommends to our full Board the director nominees for selection.
Diversity of the Board of Directors
We believe our Board should consist of individuals reflecting the diversity represented by our employees, customers, and communities in which we operate. The below table provides information related to the composition of our nine board members and nominees as of April 19, 2024.

Evaluations of the Board of Directors
Pursuant to our Corporate Governance Guidelines, our Board, the committees of our Board, and each individual director conducts an annual self-assessment of their performance. This process is overseen by the Nominating, Governance, and Sustainability Committee.

Each director completes a written self-assessment consisting of individual performance questions as a member of the Board and the committees of our Board, and the Board as a whole, and provides feedback on such matters.
The completed written self-assessments are reviewed by the chair of the Nominating, Governance, and Sustainability Committee.
Upon completion of the Nominating, Governance, and Sustainability Committee chair's review of the written self-assessments, the chair meets with each director individually to discuss their self-assessment and other feedback,

including but not limited to, the Board and its committees effectiveness and composition, organization of meetings, materials and communications, adequacy of internal and external support to the Board and its committees, and any other observations arising from the self-assessment process.
The results of these self-evaluations and any related recommendations are summarized by the Nominating, Governance, and Sustainability Committee chair.

Our Nominating, Governance, and Sustainability Committee will evaluate such recommendations in accordance with its charter, our amended and restated bylaws, our policies and procedures for director candidates, as well as the regular director nominee criteria described above. This process is designed to ensure that our Board includes members with diverse backgrounds, skills and experience, including appropriate financial and other expertise relevant to our business.

Such recommendations must include information about the candidate, a statement of support by the recommending stockholder, evidence of the recommending stockholder’s ownership of our common stock and a signed letter from the candidate confirming willingness to serve on our Board. Our Nominating, Governance, and Sustainability Committee has discretion to decide which individuals to recommend for nomination as directors.
The Board values our stockholders’ perspectives, and feedback from our stockholders has been important considerations for discussions with the Board and its committees throughout the year. In response to investor feedback during the past few years, we have made a number of enhancements to our governance and compensation practices and disclosures, including the introduction of performance equity and stock ownership guidelines (“SOGs”), adoption of a Compensation Recovery Policy (the “Clawback Policy”), and more robust ESG disclosures.
Any nomination must comply with the requirements set forth in our amended and restated bylaws and should be sent in writing to our Corporate Secretary at Sunrun Inc., 600 California Street, Suite 1800, San Francisco, CA 94108.

ESG.jpg
At Sunrun, sustainability is core to our business model and our corporate culture. We embed best practices for ESG performance throughout our organization and publish an annual Sunrun Impact Report, disclosing our performance using various widely accepted frameworks, including the Global Reporting Initiative guidelines and in accordance with the Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures recommendations. ESG performance and reporting, including climate-related matters, is overseen internally by our ESG Committee of senior management and at the Board level by our Nominating, Governance, and Sustainability Committee. Highlights of our ESG initiatives include the following:
Each year, we complete an assessment of how ESG is best incorporated into our compensation structure. In our 2023 annual cash bonus plan, we incorporated Customer Experience (measured through Net Promoter Score) and Safety as ESG factors, resulting in ESG metrics comprising 30% of our overall cash bonus metric weighting. We incorporated Customer Experience and Safety into our executive compensation structure because of our view that these are complementary and integral factors to creating long-term sustainable value for our stockholders.

These systems are expected to prevent the emission of over 21 million metric tons of CO2e over the next thirty years.1
In 2023 we began working with the Science-Based Targets Initiative (“SBTI”) to adopt science-based targets for reducing our emissions, and are currently in the process of working with SBTI to finalize such targets and our emissions reduction plan.
In 2018, Sunrun committed to develop a minimum of 100 megawatts of solar on affordable multi-family housing, where 80% of tenants fall below 60% of the area median income, by 2030. This commitment will directly benefit at least 50,000 households, and we intend to expand these programs in other states.
1 Calculated using the Environmental Protection Agency’s (“EPA”) AVERT tool using the most recent published tool from the EPA and the current-year avoided emission factor for distributed resources on a state by state basis. The environmental impact is estimated based on the system, regardless of whether or not Sunrun continues to own the system or any associated renewable energy credits.

Sunrun works with vendors that share our commitment to creating a better, greener, and kinder planet. That is why we included policies on environmental protection and sustainability as well as responsible mineral sourcing in our Vendor Code of Conduct, which was adopted in 2019.
We were the first national solar company to achieve 100% gender pay parity in 2018. We continue our commitment to lead the industry on pay equity by upholding the California Equal Pay Pledge and The White House Equal Pay Pledge, as well as providing a wage of at least $15 per hour to all employees. Further, we established a Human Rights policy, building on our commitment to fair and equitable treatment.
We received a score of 95 on the Human Rights Campaign Foundation’s 2023 Corporate Equality Index (“CEI”), the nation’s foremost benchmarking survey and report measuring corporate policies and practices related to LGBTQ+ workplace equality. In 2023 we also received the following recognition by Comparably: Best Company for Women, Best Career Growth and Best Sales Teams.
We believe it is important to foster a diverse and equitable workforce that reflects the diversity of our customers and who can connect with the unique experiences and backgrounds of our customers. We pursue this in many ways, such as by requiring diverse slates of qualified candidates be presented to hiring managers for all new management-level roles, as well as having our interview panels of all new management-level roles and above include a diverse panel of interviewers. As of December 31, 2023, women comprised 56% of our Board, 50% of our executive management team, and 26% of our director and above positions. Women make up approximately 21% of Sunrun’s workforce while individuals identifying as BIPOC make up approximately 52% of Sunrun’s total workforce.
At Sunrun, we start with safety, and we prioritize the safety, health, and welfare of our team members as part of our people-centric culture. Our safety strategy is comprised of four pillars: visible leadership, technical qualification and knowledge, operational discipline, and formal safety communications. Some of the initiatives we have implemented to reinforce our safety culture of excellence include an expanded fall protection policy; the institution of a zero-tolerance policy for life-threatening violations; a required recurring competent persons and human factors training; onsite safety visits from the executive management team to each front-line manager; the adoption of a formal rewards and recognition program; and the incorporation of proactive safety targets within bonus structures. We achieved a 12% year-over-year improvement to our annual Safety DART (Days Away, Restricted, or Transferred) metric through our concerted efforts to create a safety first culture focusing on visible leadership, commitment, and training.
Our eight Sunrun Communities (formerly Employee Resources Groups or ERGs) have a membership of over 1,000 employees as of December 31, 2023. We also continue to build our Employee Engagement Networks, and added a Young Professionals Network in 2023.
We are dedicated to providing training, education, and development to all of our employees. We offer cross-functional training, beginning with new-hire orientation and covering all levels up to advanced leadership training for senior managers. Sunrun has continued to invest in our employees through our partnership with Guild Education with approximately 568 employees currently enrolled in an electrical licensure pathway program. Since the launch of PowerU, our fully-funded employee education and upskilling program designed to train and develop our workforce for the rapidly growing clean energy industry. Since August 2021, over 600 employees have been promoted after completing the PowerU program.
We developed our Empowered Corporate Giving Program to facilitate our corporate giving program and an employee match program for charitable donations. Through the program launched in early 2023, we facilitate corporate donations and match employee donations dollar-for-dollar up to $300 for personal donations to nonprofit organizations or credit employees for time spent volunteering.
In response to feedback from our stockholders in 2023, we adopted multiple changes to our governance structure, including the declassification of our Board and eliminating certain supermajority voting thresholds in our Restated Certificate.

Stockholder Engagement.jpg
We have a history of actively engaging with our stockholders, and continue to approach stockholder engagement as an integrated, year-round process that includes proactive outreach as well as responsiveness to stockholder concerns and feedback. In addition to our annual meeting of stockholders, we regularly provide stockholders with opportunities to provide feedback to our executive and management teams on our corporate governance, compensation and ESG practices.
Stockholder engagement is led by our Investor Relations team who conduct targeted outreach to current and prospective stockholders and facilitate open lines of communication for inquiries. Our Investor Relations team regularly meets with investors and prospective investors. Meetings may include participation from our Co-Executive Chairs, Chief Executive Officer, Chief Financial Officer, Senior Vice President of Investor Relations, Chief Legal & People Officer, our Lead Independent Director, or other business leaders. The engagements are often focused on company performance and strategy. We routinely communicate topics discussed with stockholders and their feedback to senior management and the Board for consideration in their decision-making.
In 2023, our Investor Relations team and members of our executive and management teams engaged in discussions with 68% of our top 50 stockholders, representing 45% of our total shares outstanding. In addition, our Investor Relations team offered meetings to all of our top 40 stockholders ahead of the annual stockholder meeting. A significant number of our stockholders took the opportunity to provide feedback and discuss topics related to company performance, compensation, ESG matters, stockholder proposals and other topics pertinent to their investment in Sunrun and the forthcoming annual stockholder meeting and stockholder vote.
Our Senior Vice President of Investor Relations and other members of our executive team also regularly met with, and helped facilitate, the equity research coverage from more than 60 individuals representing 28 brokerage firms who regularly publish equity research on Sunrun and the industry. We believe that being accessible to help facilitate coverage by independent equity research groups, including the 28 brokerage firms covering Sunrun, is helpful to the stockholders we regularly meet, stockholders we might not be able to facilitate direct conversations with given time and logistical constraints, as well as potential stockholders. In total, during 2023 we participated in 19 investor events organized by these brokerage firms, in addition to arranging meetings and facilitating conversations with investors outside of these events.
During 2023, our Senior Vice President of Investor Relations and other members of our executive team engaged with over 680 investors and almost 300 investment firms totaling over 1,370 interactions and 460 meetings. During these meetings, we facilitated a venue for robust discussion and to provide feedback to the Company on various topics, including:

company performance across key operational metrics;
policy and regulatory developments, including the impacts of the Inflation Reduction Act and changes to net energy metering programs in California;
response to higher interest rates;
corporate governance matters, including our classified board and supermajority voting in our restated charter;

executive and director compensation, including the results of the annual advisory “say-on-pay” vote;

The Board values our stockholders’ perspectives, and feedback from our stockholders has been an important consideration for discussions with the Board and its committees throughout the year.
In response to investor feedback during the past few years, we have made a number of enhancements to our governance and compensation practices and disclosures, including:
Integration of performance metrics tied to stockholder priorities, such as cash generation
Introduction of performance-based equity
Integration of total shareholder return in performance-based compensation for our executives
Increased ratio of performance-based compensation to comprise a majority of the total equity awarded annually for our executives
Adoption of stock ownership guidelines for the Board and our executives
Adoption of a clawback policy
Declassification of our Board
Elimination of certain super majority voting thresholds in our certificate of incorporation
Incorporation of ESG-related metrics into our short-term incentive compensation plan
Further, in response to a stockholder proposal we received in 2023, we made available on the Corporate Governance portion of our website available at www.sunrun.com on the “Governance Documents” page under the “Investor Relations – Leadership & Governance,” a report on our use of concealment clauses in the context of harassment, discrimination, and other unlawful acts.
Corporate Governance Guidelines and Code of Business Conduct and Ethics
Our Board has adopted Corporate Governance Guidelines that address items such as the qualifications and responsibilities of our directors and director candidates and corporate governance policies and standards applicable to us in general. In addition, our Board has adopted a Code of Business Conduct and Ethics that applies to all of our employees, officers, and directors, including our Chief Executive Officer, Chief Financial Officer, and other executives and senior financial officers. The full text of our Corporate Governance Guidelines and our Code of Business Conduct and Ethics is posted on the Corporate Governance portion of our website available at www.sunrun.com on the “Governance Documents” page under the “Investor Relations – Leadership & Governance” section. We will post any amendments to our Code of Business Conduct and Ethics or waivers of our Code of Business Conduct and Ethics for directors and executive officers on the same webpage.
The Board’s Role in Strategy and Succession Planning
The Board reviews the Company’s financial performance on a regular basis at Board meetings and through regular updates from management. The Board also periodically reviews and assesses the Company’s short and long-term strategy and performance, on both an absolute basis and in relation to the performance, practices and policies of its peers. While the Board receives updates regarding strategic matters throughout the year, at least one Board meeting per year is focused almost entirely on the Company’s short- and long-term strategic direction. The Board receives reports from management, and expert speakers often are invited to present to the Board. At this annual strategy-focused meeting,
Sunrun Inc. — 2024 Proxy Statement

Table of Contents
the Board provides input and oversight on short-term strategic goals and sets the long-term strategic direction of the Company.
The Board also reviews the Company’s succession planning. In that regard, the Chief Executive Officer provides an annual report to the Board recommending and evaluating potential successors, along with a review of any development plans recommended for such individuals. The Chief Executive Officer provides to the Board, on an ongoing basis, her recommendation as to a successor in the event of an unexpected emergency. The Board also reviews succession planning with respect to the Company’s other key executive officers and ensures that directors have substantial opportunities to engage with successor candidates, including emerging leaders. The Board has access to external consultants, as needed.
The Board’s Role in Oversight of Human Capital and Culture
We believe engaged colleagues produce stronger business results and are more likely to build a career with Sunrun. Each year, we conduct an internal engagement survey that provides colleagues with an opportunity to share their opinions and experiences with respect to their role, their team, and the enterprise to help the Board and our management identify areas where we can improve employee experience. The survey covers a broad range of topics including development and opportunities, diversity management, recognition, performance, well-being, compliance, and continuous improvement. In 2023, more than 90% of our colleagues participated in the engagement survey, of which greater than 76% responded that they were actively engaged.
Our Board and Chief Executive Officer also play a leading role in overseeing our human capital strategy, which consists of the following categories: “Attracting, Retaining, Engaging, and Developing our Talented Employees”; “Building an Inclusive Culture with a Focus on Career Development and Mobility”; and “Ensuring that every day, We Start with Safety.” Our Compensation Committee also reviews our broad-based compensation and benefits programs.
The Board is also regularly updated on key talent metrics for the overall workforce, including metrics related to diversity and inclusion, recruiting and talent development programs. The Board is updated on our human capital development strategy on a quarterly basis. For more information on the Company’s approach to talent development, engagement and our efforts in diversity, equity and Inclusion, please see our Impact Reports at https://www.sunrun.com/why-sunrun.
Risk Management
Risk is inherent within every business, and we face a number of risks, including strategic, financial, business and operational, political, regulatory, legal and compliance, reputational, and cybersecurity and privacy. We have designed and implemented processes to manage risk in our operations. Management is responsible for the day-to-day management of risks the Company faces, while our Board, as a whole, and assisted by its committees, has responsibility for the oversight of risk management. In its risk oversight role, our Board has the responsibility to satisfy that the risk management processes designed and implemented by management are appropriate and functioning as designed.
Our Board believes that open communication between management and our Board is essential for effective risk management and oversight. At a minimum, our Board meets with our Chief Executive Officer and other members of the senior management team at quarterly meetings of our Board, where, among other topics, they discuss our quarterly enterprise risk assessment, key strategy and risks facing the Company; as well as at such other times as they deem appropriate.
While our Board is ultimately responsible for risk oversight, our board committees assist our Board in fulfilling its oversight responsibilities in certain areas of risk. Our Audit Committee assists our Board in fulfilling its oversight responsibilities with respect to risk management in the areas of internal control over financial reporting and disclosure controls and procedures, legal and regulatory compliance, and discusses with management and the independent auditor guidelines and policies with respect to risk assessment and risk management. Our Audit Committee also reviews our major financial risk exposures and the steps management has taken to monitor and control these exposures. Our Audit Committee also monitors certain key risks on a regular basis throughout the fiscal year, such as risk associated with internal control over financial reporting, liquidity risk, and cyber security and privacy risks. Our Nominating, Governance, and Sustainability Committee assists our Board in fulfilling its oversight responsibilities with respect to the management of
Sunrun Inc. — 2024 Proxy Statement

Table of Contents
risk associated with board organization, membership and structure, corporate governance, and ESG-related risks. Our Compensation Committee assesses risks created by the incentives inherent in our compensation policies. Finally, our full Board reviews strategic and operational risks in the context of reports from the management team, receives reports on significant committee activities, and evaluates the risks inherent in significant transactions.
Data Security Governance
We developed an approach for managing data security at Sunrun that involves individuals throughout various levels of the Company, including our Board, executive leadership, management, and employees. Our data security program and practices include the following to promote the security of our critical information and strengthen our cybersecurity protective measures:
Regular Board and Audit Committee updates. On a periodic basis, management provides regular updates to our Audit Committee and at least biannually to the Board on these topics and the Company's performance on the initiatives and objectives of the data security program. For example, leadership from our data security program provides a ransomware readiness and cybersecurity program review by rating their status through the use of a scorecard to assist the Audit Committee in its oversight of these topics.
Our people, systems, and processes. We use a combination of vendor-provided solutions and in-house technologies to protect the critical information of the Company. We utilize threat intelligence to identify and assess material cybersecurity risks, and monitor, investigate and respond to such material cybersecurity threats. We also conduct ongoing tests that provide opportunities for our team members to recognize and report seemingly suspicious activity, and for our data security team to practice responding to such activities. For example, our internal audit team conducts a series of internal audit tests and provides reports to our management team and Board on the status of our data security and corresponding governance practices.
Third-party risk management. Members of our data security team work diligently to understand evolving material cybersecurity threats, and in conjunction with our team members who work with our suppliers, partners, vendors, and other service providers, to monitor and assess such risks with these external parties.
Use of third party data security subject matter experts. In addition to our in-house capabilities, we engage external security and technology service providers to assess our data security program and test our technical capabilities.
Training and awareness of Sunrun team members. As a part of our data security efforts, we have implemented an Information Security & Compliance Policy which requires employees to complete mandatory security awareness training annually and throughout the year, based upon changing cybersecurity threats and material risks to the business. Our data security training aims to educate our team members on how to understand the required actions and technical requirements to protect our critical information. We also invest in building and developing data security talent and expertise among members of our technology team.
Process References the National Institute of Standards and Technology Cybersecurity Framework and Center for Information Security Controls. The data security team refers to the National Institute of Standards and Technology (“NIST”) Cybersecurity Framework and Center for Information Security (“CIS”) Controls when performing relevant risk assessments. Our team analyzes threat modeling scenarios, for internal as well as external threat actors and assigns a risk rating based upon a combination of any inherent vulnerabilities and the anticipated impacts to the business should an exploit of that vulnerability be successful. This also factors in primary and secondary impacts to provide an understanding of estimated losses the business may incur relative to the assessed severity of discovered vulnerabilities and the associated criticality of business impact. Risks are reviewed regularly to reduce their impact in accordance with enterprise wide business objectives.

Director Compensation
Director Cash Compensation
We have a non-employee director pay policy pursuant to which our unaffiliated, non-employee directors are eligible to receive equity awards and annual cash compensation for service on our Board and committees of our Board.
Meridian, the Compensation Committee’s independent consultant, regularly advises the Committee on the market competitiveness of our non-employee director compensation. After considering Meridian’s market analysis and other relevant factors in July 2023, the Committee approved an amended and restated non-employee director pay policy such that our non-employee directors receive the following cash compensation for their services, with relevant increases noted below:
$70,000 (an increase of $10,000) per year for service as a Board member;
$35,000 (an increase of $10,000) per year for service as the Lead Independent Director;
$25,000 per year for service as chair of the Audit Committee;
$20,000 (an increase of $3,000) per year for service as chair of the Compensation Committee;
$17,000 per year for service as chair of the Nominating, Governance, and Sustainability Committee;
$12,500 per year for service as a non-chairperson member of the Audit Committee;
$9,000 per year for service as a non-chairperson member of the Compensation Committee; and
$9,000 per year for services as a non-chairperson member of the Nominating, Governance, and Sustainability Committee.
All cash payments to non-employee directors are paid quarterly and newly hired directors receive a pro-rata cash fee. In addition, in the event that the Board or an applicable Board committee holds more than six meetings in a given calendar year, each eligible nonemployee director receives a per meeting fee of $1,000 for each subsequent meeting. However, no meeting fees are paid for the first six meetings of the year and the number of Board and committee meetings are not aggregated.
Director Equity Compensation
Under our non-employee director pay policy, each non-employee director who is serving on January 1st of an applicable fiscal year will receive an annual restricted stock unit (“RSU”) award on such date, or the next trading day if January 1st is not a trading date, with the number of shares subject to the RSU award determined based on a specified dollar value and the closing trading price of our stock on the date of grant. Newly appointed or elected non-employee directors receive on the date of their initial appointment or election a prorated RSU grant their first year of service, with the number of shares subject to the RSU award determined in proportion to the length of active service expected to be provided by such non-employee director during his or her first fiscal year of service. These RSU awards vest 100% on January 1st the year following the date of grant, subject to the non-employee directors’ continued service on our Board
Sunrun Inc. — 2024 Proxy Statement

through the vesting date. Our amended and restated non-employee director pay policy was amended to enable us to maintain alignment of our director equity compensation with our peer group as stock prices fluctuate. Under the amended policy, in 2023, our non-employee directors were each granted an annual RSU award having a value of $170,000 (or the applicable prorated value), as determined on the applicable date of grant, and the value of the annual RSU award increased to $180,000 beginning in 2024.
Stock Ownership Guidelines for Non-Employee Directors
Our Board adopted stock ownership guidelines for Non-Employee Directors (“SOGs for Non-Employee Directors”) in 2021 to further align their interests with the interests of the Company’s stockholders. Under the SOGs for Non-Employee Directors, our directors are expected to accumulate and hold a minimum number of shares of the Company’s common stock. Our SOGs for Non-Employee Directors provide that each non-employee director is expected to accumulate and hold an amount of qualifying Sunrun equity securities equal to the lesser of the value of five times the annual cash retainer for Non-Employee Directors or a fixed number of shares having a value equal to five times his or her annual retainer on the date of adoption of the guidelines (July 29, 2021).
As of the end of 2023, all of our non-employee directors were in compliance with our SOGs for Non-Employee Directors.

Proposal #2.jpg
Under the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act of 2010 and Section 14A of the Exchange Act, our stockholders are entitled to vote to approve, on an advisory basis, the compensation of our named executive officers (“NEOs”) as disclosed in this proxy statement in accordance with SEC rules.
This proposal, commonly known as a “Say-on-Pay” proposal, gives our stockholders the opportunity to express their views on our NEOs’ compensation as a whole. This vote is not intended to address any specific item of compensation or any specific NEO, but rather the overall compensation of all of our NEOs and the philosophy, policies and practices described in this proxy statement. The compensation of our NEOs is disclosed in the Compensation Discussion and Analysis, the compensation tables, and the related narrative disclosure contained in this proxy statement. As discussed in these disclosures, we believe that our compensation policies and decisions are based on principles that reflect a “pay-for-performance” philosophy and are strongly aligned with our stockholders’ interests and consistent with current market practices. Compensation of our NEOs is designed to enable us to attract and retain talented and experienced executives to lead us successfully in a competitive environment.
Accordingly, our Board is asking our stockholders to indicate their support for the compensation of our NEOs, as described in this proxy statement, by casting a non-binding advisory vote “FOR” the following resolution:
“RESOLVED, that the stockholders of Sunrun Inc. (the “Company”) approve, on an advisory basis, the compensation paid to the Company’s NEOs, as disclosed pursuant to Item 402 of Securities and Exchange Commission Regulation S-K, including the Compensation Discussion and Analysis, the compensation tables, narrative disclosures, and other related disclosure.”

Vote Required
Advisory approval of this Proposal No. 2 requires the vote of the holders of a majority of the shares present virtually or by proxy at the Annual Meeting and entitled to vote thereon.
Because the vote is advisory, it is not binding on us, our Compensation Committee nor our Board. Nevertheless, the views expressed by the stockholders, whether through this vote or otherwise, are important to management and our Board and, accordingly, the Board and the Compensation Committee intend to consider the results of this vote in making determinations in the future regarding executive compensation arrangements.

Executive Summary — 2023 Financial and Business Highlights
Sunrun’s mission is to connect people to the cleanest energy on earth and build an affordable energy system that combats climate change and provides energy access for all. In 2007, we pioneered the residential solar service model, creating a low-cost solution for homeowners seeking to lower their energy bills. Since our founding, we have significantly expanded our operations and we now have over 933,000 Customers.
By removing the high initial cost and complexity that used to define the residential solar industry, we have fostered the industry’s rapid growth and exposed an enormous market opportunity. Our relentless drive to increase the accessibility of solar energy is fueled by our enduring vision: to connect people to the cleanest energy on earth. Our core solar service offerings are provided through our lease and power purchase agreements which we refer to as our “Customer Agreements” and which provide customers with simple, predictable pricing for solar energy that is insulated from rising retail electricity prices. Sunrun also provides customers who opt for backup storage offerings the benefit of increased resiliency from backup energy and enhanced energy management capabilities. While customers have the option to purchase a solar energy system outright from us, most of our customers choose to buy solar as a service from us through our Customer Agreements without the significant upfront investment of purchasing a solar energy system. With our solar service offerings, we install solar energy systems on our customers’ homes and provide them with the solar power produced by those systems typically for a 20- or 25-year initial term. In addition, we monitor, maintain and insure the system during the term of the contract. In exchange, we receive predictable cash flows from high credit quality customers and qualify for tax and other benefits. We finance portions of these tax benefits and cash flows through tax equity, non-recourse debt and project equity structures in order to fund our upfront costs, overhead and growth investments. We develop valuable customer relationships that can extend beyond this initial contract term and provide us an opportunity over time to integrate additional solar, battery storage, electrification and distributed power plant offerings into a smart solution for each home and community.

Definitions:
“Customers” represent the cumulative number of Deployments, from the Company’s inception through the measurement date.
“Customer Agreements” refer to, collectively, solar power purchase agreements and solar leases.
“Deployments” represent solar energy systems, whether sold directly to customers or subject to executed Customer Agreements (i) for which we have confirmation that the systems are installed on the roof, subject to final inspection, (ii) in the case of certain system installations by our partners, for which we have accrued at least 80% of the expected project cost (inclusive of acquisitions of installed systems), or (iii) for multi-family and any other systems that have reached our internal milestone signaling construction can commence following design completion, measured on the percentage of the system that has been completed based on expected system cost.
“Gross Earning Assets” is calculated as Gross Earning Assets Contracted Period plus Gross Earning Assets Renewal Period.
“Gross Earning Assets Contracted Period” represents the present value of the remaining net cash flows (discounted at 6%) during the initial term of our Customer Agreements as of the measurement date. It is calculated as the present value of cash flows (discounted at 6%) that we would receive from Subscribers in future periods as set forth in Customer Agreements, after deducting expected operating and maintenance costs, equipment replacements costs, distributions to tax equity partners in consolidated joint venture partnership flip structures, and distributions to project equity investors. We include cash flows we expect to receive in future periods from state incentive and rebate programs, contracted sales of solar renewable energy credits, and awarded net cash flows from grid service programs with utilities or grid operators.
“Gross Earning Assets Renewal Period” represents the forecasted net present value we would receive upon or following the expiration of the initial Customer Agreement term but before the 30th anniversary of the system’s activation (either in the form of cash payments during any applicable renewal period or a system purchase at the end of the initial term), for Subscribers as of the measurement date. We calculate the Gross Earning Assets Renewal Period amount at the expiration of the initial contract term assuming either a system purchase or a renewal, forecasting only a 30-year customer relationship (although the customer may renew for additional years, or purchase the system), at a contract rate equal to 90% of the customer’s contractual rate in effect at the end of the initial contract term. After the initial contract term, our Customer Agreements typically automatically renew on an annual basis and the rate is initially set at up to a 10% discount to then-prevailing utility power prices.
“Networked Solar Energy Capacity” represents the aggregate megawatt production capacity of our solar energy systems that have been recognized as Deployments, from the Company’s inception through the measurement date.
“Net Earning Assets” represents Gross Earning Assets, plus total cash, less adjusted debt and less pass-through financing obligations, as of the same measurement date. Debt is adjusted to exclude a pro-rata share of non-recourse debt associated with funds with project equity structures along with debt associated with the company’s Investment Tax Credit safe harboring facility. Because estimated cash distributions to our project equity partners are deducted from Gross Earning Assets, a proportional share of the corresponding project level non-recourse debt is deducted from Net Earning Assets, as such debt would be serviced from cash flows already excluded from Gross Earning Assets.
“Solar Energy Capacity Installed” represents the aggregate megawatt production capacity of our solar energy systems that were recognized as Deployments in the period.
“Storage Capacity Installed” represents the aggregate megawatt hour capacity of storage systems that were recognized as Deployments in the period.
“Subscribers” represent the cumulative number of Customer Agreements for systems that have been recognized as Deployments through the measurement date.

Executive Compensation Philosophy and Objectives
We operate in a highly competitive and rapidly evolving market, and we compete for talent with companies in our industry as well as adjacent industries. Due, in part, to the diverse nature of our executives’ responsibilities, the market for skilled personnel is very competitive, and we recruit heavily across a broad array of industries that include but are not limited to: residential solar, retail sales, consumer technology, business-to-business technology, consumer finance, investment banking, residential construction, and providers of renewable energy from alternative sources. Our ability to compete and succeed in this environment is directly correlated to our ability to recruit, incentivize, and retain talented executives. Our compensation philosophy is rooted in feedback from our stockholders and is intended to attract and reward talented individuals who possess the skills necessary to expand our business and assist in the achievement of our other strategic goals and thereby create long-term value for our stockholders.
Highlights of Key 2023 Compensation-Related Decisions
In 2023, we implemented several changes to our compensation structure aimed at continuing to align executive compensation with stockholder interests and bolstering our commitment to performance-driven rewards:
We discontinued the practice of issuing stock options, opting instead for a blend of Restricted Stock Units (“RSUs”) and Performance Stock Units (“PSUs”).
PSUs comprised 25% of our annual equity grant distribution.
We instituted a variety of performance metrics, including PSUs tied to relative Total Shareholder Return (the “Relative TSR PSUs”) and the achievement of a predefined threshold for Net Earning Assets per diluted share.
In our annual bonus incentive plan, we added an additional ESG-related metric, in the form of a component related to employee safety.
2023 Annual Compensation Cycle
In 2023, our Compensation Committee reviewed and assessed our compensation philosophy, which is intended to promote Sunrun’s core values and our stockholders’ key priorities. Following this review, they agreed that base salary, target bonus opportunities, and annual long-term incentive grant values would continue to reference a competitive range of the 50th percentile of our established peer group. The Company does not use a formulaic approach to establish executive pay levels and instead references various factors and inputs, as further discussed below in the section titled “Compensation Setting Process.” Our Compensation Committee also determined it was in the Company’s and its stockholders’ best interest to place an increased emphasis on long-term performance-based equity incentives and granted two performance-based awards to each of our NEOs (excluding Mr. Fenster who ceased to be an “executive officer” under Rule 3b-7 of the Exchange Act, effective March 1, 2023) as further described below in the “PSU Awards” section.
Our Responsiveness to Stockholder Feedback: Stockholder Vision Alignment PSU
Additionally, in response to extensive stockholder feedback following our 2023 annual stockholder meeting, our Compensation Committee developed and granted an additional one-time long-term performance-based award, in August 2023, in order to further align executives with our stockholders and to motivate our NEOs to achieve certain long-term performance and operational goals, named the Stockholder Vision Alignment PSUs, and as further described below in the “PSU Awards” section.
Our Compensation Philosophy
Our Compensation Committee believes that the combination of a great work environment, meaningful equity ownership that aligns the interests of our executive employees with our stockholders, and competitive pay and benefits support a winning team, company, and workplace. Key elements of our compensation philosophy include the following:
Emphasis on Performance-Based Compensation: Through our executive compensation structure, we continue to emphasize at-risk, performance-based cash and long-term equity incentives to ensure that the compensation for our NEOs is aligned with the interests of our stockholders and focused on sustained stockholder value creation. The Compensation Committee establishes at-risk cash and equity incentives with performance targets that will support the execution of our business strategy. In 2023, more than 88% of our executives’ target total compensation was at-

Table of Contents
risk and performance-based, up from 86% in 2022, and in 2023, when including the Stockholder Vision Alignment PSUs, that figure increased to more than 93% of our executives’ target total compensation.
Ownership Focus: We believe our executives should have a significant share in the ownership of Sunrun, which best aligns the interests of our executives with our stockholders and ensures appropriate incentives are in place to promote a focus on our long-term strategic and financial goals. As a result, equity compensation represents a larger part of total target compensation for our executives than their target cash compensation. In any particular year, the ratio of awarded equity-based compensation to total compensation may vary because the Compensation Committee considers various factors in awarding equity, including the amount of unvested equity remaining for each individual executive, the potential compensation that would be realized by the executives for their equity after modeling different potential future stock prices and the vesting of their unvested awards, and the dilutive impact to our stockholders of granting new equity awards to our executives. The Compensation Committee adopted stock ownership guidelines (“SOGs”) to further align the interests of the Company’s executives with the interests of the Company’s stockholders. Under the SOGs, our executives are expected to accumulate and hold a minimum number of shares of the Company’s common stock.
Flexible and Fair: Our compensation structure is intended to provide fair rewards for each of our executive’s contributions to the Company's performance and creation of long-term stockholder value. We seek to provide target total direct compensation (which includes the components of base salary, annual bonus incentive, and equity) that is market competitive, and to provide parity and consistency in the compensation provided to our executives while at the same time retaining the flexibility needed to recruit and retain executive talent and adhere to our budgets.
At-Risk Weighted: We heavily weight our executives’ total compensation to at-risk pay. We believe focusing heavily on at-risk pay for our executives helps to properly focus our executives’ decisions, resources, and commitment to enterprise imperatives that advance the goals of the organization.
CEO pay.jpg
Data in the charts above includes target total direct compensation (base salary, target bonus, RSU, and PSU grants) for our NEOs and excludes the Stockholder Vision Alignment PSU awards since we do not view these PSU awards as part of our CEO’s or other NEOs’ annual target equity as they were a one-time exceptional award grant in response to stockholder engagement. All other NEO data represents averages for each component, but excludes Mr. Fenster as he transitioned to a part-time role as Co-Executive Chair and ceased to be an “executive officer” as defined in the Exchange Act, effective March 1, 2023.
Objectives: Consistent with our compensation philosophy, the primary objectives of our executive compensation programs are to:
Provide competitive compensation to recruit, retain, and motivate top executive talent to achieve our short and long-term performance goals;
Sunrun Inc. — 2024 Proxy Statement

Table of Contents
Align the economic interests of our executives and stockholders through the use of performance-based awards; and
Reward executives for achievement of our performance goals.
Pay-for-Performance and Stockholder Alignment
Our executive compensation program delivers pay that is aligned with actual performance and is structured such that performance directly impacts the realizable pay of our NEOs. Because a significant portion of our executive compensation is long-term, “at-risk” equity-based compensation, the dollar amounts reported for our NEOs in the Summary Compensation Table are not the same as their estimated realizable equity compensation.
Estimated realizable equity compensation is intended to offer a more transparent view of the value of our NEOs’ compensation as if it was actually earned as of December 31, 2023 with a stock price assumption of $10 stock price (which is reflective of approximate recent stock prices as of the filing date) and actual or estimated PSU performance as December 31, 2023. For example, the analysis below assumes the Relative Total Shareholder Return PSU was achieved at 68% as this is the actual performance as of December 31, 2023.

Total Target Equity Compensation is calculated as follows:

Formula CEO.jpg
This calculation makes estimates about the value of certain awards, but the actual value can significantly change based on performance results before the awards are paid out. As a result, realizable equity compensation is not compensation actually received in each respective year and amounts remain subject to change based on fluctuations in our stock price before RSU and PSU awards are settled.
Page 42.jpg
As shown above, Ms. Powell’s realizable equity compensation for fiscal years 2022 and 2023 is well below the target value (68% of the target value was not realized), demonstrating the “at-risk” nature of a substantial portion of her pay due to the strong correlation of compensation opportunities with Sunrun’s performance. During this period, our stock price declined by 45% and several performance-

based stock awards were trending at less than target performance which resulted in a commensurate decline in Ms. Powell’s and our other NEO’s realizable compensation opportunity.

Compensation Policy Design
In 2023, we granted our NEOs a combination of performance-based vesting restricted stock units (“PSUs”) and time-based vesting RSUs. We believe the combination of PSUs and RSUs aligns the interests of our executives with our stockholders and provides a focus on creating long-term stockholder value through predominantly multi-year vesting schedules. The RSUs also help us manage dilution of investors and provide our executive officers some stability in the value of their compensation while still incentivizing significant stockholder returns. The PSUs allow us to further align our executive officers with specific business goals and create additional incentives to meet or exceed these goals, and to align their interests with those of our stockholders. For instance, the Compensation Committee granted the Relative Total Shareholder Return PSUs and Net Earning Assets per Diluted Share PSUs in April 2023, and, pursuant to extensive feedback from our expansive stockholder engagement campaign, the Stockholder Vision Alignment PSUs in August 2023, to each of our NEOs to further align our executive compensation structure with key stockholder priorities, as further discussed below in the “PSU Awards” section. The Compensation Committee believes that the combination of these equity awards serve as an effective motivation and retention tool for our executive officers, because unvested awards are generally forfeited if an executive officer voluntarily leaves us before the awards have vested.
To maintain a competitive compensation program, we provide our NEOs base salaries that are intended to provide a stable level of fixed compensation for performance of their day-to-day responsibilities. The NEOs are also eligible to participate in the annual performance bonus incentive that is intended to incentivize achievement of our short-term performance goals.
Compensation Setting Process
Pursuant to its charter and in accordance with applicable Nasdaq listing standards, our Compensation Committee is responsible for reviewing, evaluating, and approving the compensation arrangements of our executive officers and for establishing and maintaining our executive compensation policies and practices. Our Compensation Committee seeks input and receives recommendations from its independent compensation consultant as well as members of our executive management team when discussing the performance and compensation of other executive officers, and in determining the financial and accounting implications of our compensation programs and hiring decisions. The Compensation Committee is authorized to engage its own independent advisors to provide advice on matters related to executive compensation and general compensation programs, and for 2023, worked with Meridian as its independent compensation consultant. For additional information on the Compensation Committee, see “Committees of the Board of Directors – Compensation Committee” elsewhere in this proxy statement. The initial compensation arrangements with our executive officers, other than our Chief Executive Officer and Co-Executive Chairs, were the result of arm’s-length negotiations between us and each individual executive officer at the time of his or her hire or appointment.
In 2023, the Compensation Committee considered numerous factors in determining base salary levels, target bonus opportunities and equity grants to our NEOs. The Compensation Committee reviewed the performance of our executive officers, taking into consideration financial, operational, customer, strategic, product, and competitive factors, as well as the succession planning and retention objectives for our various executive officer positions. Additionally, following our 2023 annual meeting of stockholders, the Compensation Committee responded to feedback from an engagement campaign by designing the Stockholder Vision Alignment PSU, which aims to strategically align our executive compensation incentives with key stockholder priorities, as further described below in the “—Equity Awards – PSU Awards – Stockholder Vision Alignment PSUs” section.
The Compensation Committee also referenced relevant market data results from our benchmarking peer group and custom cut data from the Aon Radford Global Survey for our NEOs that is prepared by the Compensation Committee’s independent consultant. The custom cut data of Aon Radford Global Survey data is comprised of companies in relevant industries with $1B - $5B in revenue.
Except with respect to the compensation of our Chief Executive Officer in 2023, our Chief Executive Officer made recommendations to the Compensation Committee regarding the compensation for our executive officers, which was also taken into account by the Compensation Committee in making its decisions regarding executive compensation. Our Chief Executive Officer was not present for the discussions of our Compensation Committee regarding her performance and compensation.

Consideration of Say-on-Pay Vote and Stockholder Feedback
The Compensation Committee considers stockholder feedback and the results of the annual advisory “say-on-pay” vote when designing our executive compensation programs. At our 2023 annual meeting of stockholders, our “say-on-pay” proposal received a vote of 68.2% cast in support. We took the results of this vote seriously and in response, we initiated an expanded and rigorous stockholder engagement campaign meeting with over 200 stockholders, and over a dozen of those engagements were specifically about our compensation practices. We offered engagement opportunities with all 50 of our largest stockholders, which represented over 80% of our outstanding shares. In general, our stockholders expressed a desire for:
Performance-based equity to be a larger component of overall equity grants;
Compensation structures to specifically incentivize cash generation; and
Compensation structures to specifically incentivize material stock price appreciation.
In response to this stockholder feedback, our Compensation Committee worked with its independent compensation consultant to design a performance-based equity program that would address all three of these goals, as well as simultaneously:
Respond to stockholder feedback, including with respect to compensation structure;
Incentivize significant, sustained cash generation;
Incentivize material, sustained and long-term stock price appreciation;
Align executives with key stockholder priorities;
Support retention of the executive team that is leading this transition; and
Drive transformative performance through aggressive and challenging targets over a multi-year period.
In August 2023, after multiple meetings and extensive discussions, our Compensation Committee approved the one-time Stockholder Vision Alignment PSUs, which were specifically designed to achieve these objectives. Our Compensation Committee selected cash generation and stock price appreciation as the performance measures in response to stockholder feedback and because these metrics are key drivers of our long-term strategy. These metrics further align the NEO incentives with those of our stockholders, and our Compensation Committee believes that the performance metrics for these Stockholder Vision Alignment PSUs are achievable only if the executive team delivers exceptional business results over an extended period of time.
Role of Management
The role of management is to design our executive compensation programs, policies, and governance and make recommendations to the Compensation Committee regarding these matters. In this respect, management reviews the effectiveness of our compensation programs, including competitiveness and alignment with Sunrun’s performance goals. Management also recommends changes to our compensation programs to facilitate achievement of our performance goals and reviews and makes recommendations with respect to the adoption and approval of, or modifications to, company-wide equity incentive compensation plans. Our Chief Executive Officer makes compensation recommendations to the Compensation Committee with respect to base salaries, cash incentive awards, equity incentive awards, and other awards for NEOs, other than the Chief Executive Officer.
Role of the Compensation Consultant
The Compensation Committee retained Meridian to advise on our 2023 executive compensation programs, practices and decisions given Meridian’s expertise in the technology industry and its knowledge of our peer group companies.
During 2023, Meridian provided the following services as requested by the Compensation Committee:

Assisted in the development of the 2023 compensation peer group, analyzed the relevant proxy-disclosed pay data along with the Aon Radford Technology Survey data to assess overall market competitive compensation practices;
Assisted with the design of our PSUs, including the Stockholder Vision Alignment PSUs;
Reviewed and assessed our compensation practices and the cash and equity compensation levels of our executive officers (including an analysis of the effectiveness of our equity incentive program as a retention tool);
Reviewed and assessed our current compensation programs and identified certain changes for the Compensation Committee’s consideration to potentially implement in order to remain competitive with the market, as well as conducted an equity burn rate and overhang analysis; and
Advised on regulatory developments relating to executive compensation.
During 2023, the Compensation Committee reviewed the fees paid to Meridian relative to Meridian’s revenues, the services provided by Meridian to the Compensation Committee, any relationships between Meridian and its individual consultants and our executive officers, any stock ownership of Sunrun by Meridian, and other factors relating to Meridian’s independence. The Compensation Committee concluded that Meridian is independent within the meaning of the Nasdaq listing standards and that its engagement did not present any conflicts of interest.
Executive Compensation Peer Group
With the assistance of Meridian, our Compensation Committee selected our primary compensation peer group which we used for our 2023 compensation decisions. The compensation peer group continued to represent companies with a focus on renewable energy, direct-to-consumer software/services, fintech, and leasing companies. As mentioned above, the Company competes with an array of industries to attract and retain talent so the benchmarking peer group includes a mix of various industries. The revised group included publicly-traded and stand-alone companies which had revenues at levels 1/3x to 3x Sunrun’s revenues and a market cap between 1/4x and 4x Sunrun’s then-current market capitalization.
Our primary compensation peer group for 2023 consisted of the following companies:

Elements of Our Executive Compensation Program
The key elements of our executive compensation program include base salary, annual bonus incentive awards, performance-based equity awards, time-based equity awards, and health, welfare, and retirement programs. Except with respect to annual bonus incentive plan awards, which typically are expressed as a predetermined percentage of each executive officer’s base salary, we do not use specific formulas or weightings in determining the allocation of the various pay elements.
Base Salary
In March 2023, after considering a compensation analysis performed by Meridian and other factors listed above in the Compensation Setting Process section, including our Chief Executive Officer’s recommendations for all NEOs excluding herself, the Compensation Committee determined the following salaries for 2023.

2023 Annual Bonus Incentive Plan Awards
Our executive officers are eligible to participate in our 2023 annual bonus incentive plan available to key employees, referred to as our Annual Incentive Plan. The 2023 target annual bonus opportunity for each of our NEOs was set as a percentage of his or her base salary, as provided in the table below. The Annual Incentive Plan provided the opportunity for our NEOs to earn up to 150% of their stated target bonus, provided the Company delivered performance that met or exceeded maximum performance goals. Conversely, no annual bonus incentive award would have been paid unless Company performance met or exceeded threshold performance goals.

2023 Annual Bonus Incentive Plan Metrics and Performance
The performance goals for our Annual Incentive Plan are set each year by our Compensation Committee. For 2023, the Compensation Committee selected four key performance criteria to balance value generation and customer experience-related goals: (1) Total Value Generated, (2) New Customer Net Promoter Score, (3) ‘Solarversary’ Net Promoter Score, and (4) Safety. As a result of our level of achievement against the performance goal targets, the Compensation Committee approved a bonus payout to each NEO based solely on the performance attainment versus each of these four performance target goals. While the Compensation Committee retained discretion to modify the bonus amount for any participant based on such participant’s individual performance), the Compensation Committee chose to not modify any NEO’s bonus award for 2023 performance.

The Company achieved Total Value Generated of $1.387 billion for 2023, which resulted in an achievement level of 70% and achieved a DART rate of 2.10 for 2023, which resulted in an achievement level of 105%. We consider the specific Net Promoter Score target performance goals to be confidential commercial information, the disclosure of which could result in competitive harm to us. The target performance goals were set by the Compensation Committee in March 2023, and at the time the Compensation Committee set the target performance goals, it believed that each goal was achievable, but only with significant effort.
During 2023, we were impacted by macroeconomic challenges with historically high interest rate pressures and the impact of new net metering regulations in our largest market, California. Despite these headwinds, we were able to execute at a high level which allowed us to achieve a 90% bonus achievement. We continued to focus on providing an enhanced customer experience and saw significant improvements on our Solarversary NPS scores based on the changes we implemented in 2022. These changes included several organizational changes including staffing and the structure of incentives. We achieved a 12% year-over-year improvement in our annual DART safety metric through our efforts to create a safety first culture focusing on visible leadership, commitment and training.
The Annual Incentive Plan bonus awards paid to our NEOs for 2023 performance were approved in February 2024 at a level equal to 90% of their target bonus awards.

Equity Awards
In 2023, each of our NEOs was granted equity-based awards in the form of PSUs and RSUs. The size of these awards was not determined based on a specific formula, but rather through the exercise of the Compensation Committee’s judgment after considering the individual performance of each of the executive officers, our strategic goals, the recommendations of our Chief Executive Officer and Co-Executive Chairs (except with respect to their respective

individual awards), the appropriate level of compensation for the position given the scope of responsibility and any changes to their role, the current unvested equity held by such individual and related vesting schedules, the impact of dilution to our stockholders, the level of each executive officer’s total target cash compensation (base salary plus target cash incentive opportunity), executive leadership factors, the perceived retentive value of the proposed awards, and in response to stockholder feedback.
Based on the foregoing consideration, the Compensation Committee approved the following equity awards for our NEOs in 2023. These are displayed in separate tables below because the Stockholder Vision Alignment PSU was a one-time award granted to our executives based on stockholder feedback and we do not view this PSU as part of annual target equity.

RSU Awards
The 2023 RSU awards vest over four years, with 25% of the RSUs vesting on the first anniversary of the vesting commencement date and the remaining RSUs vesting in equal quarterly installments thereafter, subject to the NEO’s continued service to us through each vesting date.
PSU Awards
In 2023, in response to stockholder feedback, we ceased granting options and transitioned to a performance-based, long-term equity incentive award program. The Compensation Committee views PSUs as a valuable compensation feature to accelerate and drive Company performance by encouraging and incentivizing our executives to pursue achievement of our Company's performance goals and the generation of stockholder value. The performance metrics corresponding to each award were chosen because they are key drivers of our long-term strategy.
The PSUs granted in 2023 were divided into three categories and are subject to performance vesting conditions based on: (1) our achievement of relative total shareholder return (the Total Shareholder Return PSUs" or "TSR PSUs”); (2) our achievement of Net Earning Assets per Diluted Share (the “Net Earning Assets per Diluted Share PSUs” or "NEA PSUs"), and (3) a one-time award granted to our NEOs based on (a) our achievement of cash generation per diluted share (“Cash Generation per Diluted Share”) and (b) achieving certain stock price levels (“Stock Price Attainment”) over a three-year performance period (the “Stockholder Vision Alignment PSUs”). Although the Total Value Generated PSU (“TVG PSU”) was not granted in 2023, it has annual performance periods in 2023, 2024, and 2025 — see the section below titled “4. Total Value Generated PSUs” for more information on this award.
PSUs with Ongoing Performance Periods During 2023.jpg
1.Relative Total Shareholder Return (“TSR”) PSUs
Consistent with our compensation philosophy and our focus on driving long-term stockholder value, the TSR PSUs granted to our NEOs will vest based on our relative total shareholder return (“Relative TSR”) versus a peer group of companies established by our Compensation Committee. The Compensation Committee chose Relative TSR as a performance metric because it is an objective and meaningful metric to evaluate our performance against the performance of our industry peers, and it effectively aligns executive compensation with shareholder interests.
TSR PSUs are eligible to vest based on the level of achievement of Relative TSR during the performance period which runs from January 1, 2023 to December 31, 2025.
Achievement of the threshold, target, and maximum performance levels of Relative TSR will result in 50%, 100%, and 200% payout percentages, respectively, as set forth in the table below, with linear interpolation upon any achievement between the threshold and target performance targets or target and maximum performance levels. Failure to meet the Threshold Achievement Level during the performance period will result in forfeiture of the TSR PSUs.

After the performance period has ended, our Compensation Committee will certify the level of achievement of the Relative TSR goal and then determine the number of shares that are entitled to vest based on such achievement (the date on which such certification occurs, the “TSR Determination Date”), which will equal the product of (1) the target number of shares subject to a TSR PSU award and (2) the payout percentage as determined by the table above (such number referred to herein as the “TSR Certified Shares”). TSR Certified Shares shall vest as of the 6th day of the month following the TSR Determination Date, subject to the NEO’s continued service through the TSR Determination Date.
For purposes of computing Relative TSR and measuring the TSR Percent Rank during the performance period,dividends shall be treated as being reinvested for the purpose of the calculation during the performance period.
2. Total Value Generated (“TVG”) PSUs
In March 2021, following our acquisition of Vivint Solar, the Compensation Committee approved PSU grants to our executives to incentivize long-term performance based on our Total Value Generated metric, which included annual performance periods for 2023, 2024, and 2025, known as the Total Value Generated PSU. The Total Value Generated PSUs are subject to vesting after a three- to five-year performance period and require certification from the Compensation Committee that the Total Value generated metrics are met after each performance period. In order to be eligible to vest in the Total Value Generated PSUs, the NEOs are required to remain in continuous service to us through the date that the Compensation Committee certifies the achievement of the Total Value Generated metrics. The Total Value Generated for 2023 was approximately $1.387 billion, which resulted in the vesting of 100% of the shares eligible for the annual performance period ending December 31, 2023.
3. Stockholder Vision Alignment PSUs
In response to extensive stockholder feedback described above in the “Consideration of Say-on-Pay Vote and Stockholder Feedback” section, our Compensation Committee approved the Stockholder Vision Alignment PSUs for each of our NEOs. Pursuant to the terms of the Stockholder Vision Alignment PSUs, each NEO (each a “Participant” and, collectively, the “Participants”) was granted a target number of Stockholder Vision Alignment PSUs, which are subject to two performance-based conditions, both of which must be satisfied in order for any Stockholder Vision Alignment PSUs to vest; additionally, even if both performance-based conditions are met, vesting of the Stockholder Vision Alignment PSUs is further conditioned on a time-based vesting condition. The two performance-based conditions are (a) the Company’s achievement of Cash Generation per Diluted Share goals and (b) certain Stock Price Attainment over a three-year performance period. Once our Compensation Committee certifies the number of Stockholder Vision Alignment PSUs, if any, that satisfied the performance conditions (“Earned Stockholder Vision Alignment PSUs”), 50% of the Earned Stockholder Vision Alignment PSUs shall vest on the certification date which is expected to occur in 2027, and the remaining 50% of the Earned Stockholder Vision Alignment PSUs shall vest a year later in 2028, in each case, conditioned upon the Participant remaining in continuous service on each vesting date.

The rationale for the material features of the Stockholder Vision Alignment PSUs is set forth below:
Sunrun Inc. — 2024 Proxy Statement
50

Table of Contents
Element  Rationale
Stock Price Attainment Requirement  
As of August 28, 2023 (the date prior to the grant date), achievement of the threshold ($45), target ($60), and maximum stock price targets ($100) represented a 222%, 329%, and 616% increase in the Company’s stock price, respectively
 Directly reflects sustained and ambitious equity value creation by establishing rigorous stock price goals above the grant price
Even if our stock price appreciates and stock price targets are achieved, there is no payout if the stock price is not coupled with extraordinary Cash Generation per Diluted Share
 Aligns the interests of NEOs with the interests of our stockholders by creating significant returns that we believe would be far in excess of our cost of equity
 Ensures the stock price level is achieved and sustained for a prolonged period (50 trading days at the end of the performance period) to avoid achievement solely based on temporary volatility or other such technical factors; furthermore, vesting requires continued service beyond the end of the measurement period to incentivize continued alignment beyond the end of the performance period
Cash Generation Requirement  
 Even if the Cash Generation per Diluted Share targets are achieved, there is no payout if the stock price is not coupled with the extraordinary stock price appreciation targets
The Cash Generation per Diluted Share targets align with our long-term growth objectives
The “Cash Generation” portion of Cash Generation per Diluted Share is calculated based on GAAP financial measures, and not subject to any adjustments based on management discretion
Cash Generation per Diluted Share incorporates diluted share count each year in the calculation, to align both aggregate cash performance but also ensure alignment to generate value on a per share basis
Multi-Year Performance Period Ending Fiscal 2026  
Promotes long-term stock price growth and value creation
Aligns the interests of participating NEOs with the interests of stockholders
Additional Post-Performance Period Time-Based Vesting Requirement  
Promotes long-term retention, as no Stockholder Vision Alignment PSUs vest prior to the completion of the additional time-based vesting following the three-year performance period
Aligns the interests of participating NEOs with the interests of our stockholders
Cash Generation Performance Condition
The first performance-based vesting condition is based on our achievement of Cash Generation per Diluted Share goals over the three calendar year period of 2024 through 2026 (the “Performance Period”), as noted in the table below, with results in between each level determined by linear interpolation (“Cash Generation Achievement”). Cash Generation per Diluted Share is measured annually with the three annual measurements added together to determine aggregate achievement over the Performance Period.

“Cash Generation” is calculated using reported GAAP financials on an annual basis. The calculation is performed by measuring the change in our unrestricted cash balance between the start of the year and the end of the year from its consolidated balance sheet, less net proceeds (or plus net repayments) from all recourse debt (inclusive of convertible debt), and less any primary equity issuances or net proceeds derived from employee stock award activity (or plus any stock buybacks or dividends paid to common stockholders) as presented on our consolidated statement of cash flows. We expect to continue to raise tax equity and asset-level non-recourse debt to fund growth, and as such, these sources of cash are included in the definition of Cash Generation. Cash Generation also excludes long-term asset or business divestitures and equity investments in external non-consolidated businesses (or less dividends or distributions received in connection with such equity investments), such as our prior investments in Lunar Energy. There are no adjustments at management’s discretion. The Board may, at its discretion, adjust the calculation if we pursue extraordinary activities, as is customary for such awards; for instance, adjusting for a transaction that impacts the consolidated accounting treatment of the majority of funds.
Sunrun Inc. — 2024 Proxy Statement

Table of Contents
“Cash Generation per Diluted Share” is derived by taking “Cash Generation” for a given year and dividing by the “Diluted share count” at the end of the year and is calculated as:
The sum of:
End of year consolidated unrestricted cash balance;
Less end of the prior year consolidated unrestricted cash balance;
Less net proceeds (or plus net repayments) from all recourse debt (inclusive of convertible debt, recourse credit facilities, and other recourse debt instruments) during the year, as presented on the consolidated statement of cash flows;
Less any primary equity issuances or net proceeds derived from employee stock award activities (or plus any stock buybacks or dividends paid to common stockholders) during the year, as presented on the consolidated statement of cash flows;
Plus equity investments in non-consolidated external businesses (or less dividends or distributions received in connection with such equity investments), as presented on the consolidated statement of cash flows; and
Less net proceeds from long-term asset or business divestitures, as presented on the consolidated statement of cash flows.
Divided by:
our diluted share count at the end of the year. 
“Diluted share count” is derived using a treasury method approach at the end of the calendar year and excludes the dilutive effect of our current convertible debt assuming the stock price is below the conversion price. The inclusions and exclusions from Cash Generation are a result of direct feedback from stockholders and all inputs are included in our GAAP financial statements.
Stock Price Attainment Performance Condition
The second performance-based vesting condition is based on Stock Price Attainment. Three performance goals were established with a pre-defined number of Stockholder Vision Alignment PSUs eligible to vest at each goal (provided the threshold Cash Generation goal is also met) as noted in the table below, with results in between each level determined by linear interpolation:
Performance Level
Stock PricePayout
Maximum
$100200%
Target
$60
100%
Threshold
$4550%
<Threshold
<45.00
0%
We will calculate Stock Price Attainment by using the average closing price of our common stock on the primary market on which it is traded for the last 50 trading days in 2026.
The number of Stockholder Vision Alignment PSUs that become Earned Stockholder Vision Alignment PSUs following certification by our Compensation Committee will be determined by taking the product of the target number of Stockholder Vision Alignment PSUs and the sum of the Cash Generation Achievement percentage and the Stock Price Attainment percentage as set forth in the formula below:

(Cannot exceed 300% of the Target number of PSUs)
No payment shall be made in respect of the Stockholder Vision Alignment PSUs if either Cash Generation per Diluted Share does not meet the threshold requirement of $2.00 or Stock Price Attainment does not meet the threshold requirement of $45.00. Regardless of the level of Cash Generation Achievement and Stock Price Attainment, no Stockholder Vision Alignment PSUs shall be achieved at a level greater than 300% of the target number of Stockholder Vision Alignment PSUs.

Additional Time-Based Vesting Condition
In addition to performance-based vesting conditions, Stockholder Vision Alignment PSUs are also subject to a time-based vesting condition that must be satisfied for any of the Earned Stockholder Vision Alignment PSUs to vest. Once our Compensation Committee certifies the number of Earned Stockholder Vision Alignment PSUs following the Performance Period, 50% of the Earned Stockholder Vision Alignment PSUs shall vest on the 6th day of the month following certification by our Compensation Committee in 2027 (the “Initial Vesting Date”), and the remaining 50% of the Earned Stockholder Vision Alignment PSUs shall vest on the first anniversary of the Initial Vesting Date, with all vesting events conditioned upon the Participant remaining in continuous service on each vesting date. If our Compensation Committee does not certify achievement at the threshold, target, or maximum level of Cash Generation Achievement or Stock Price Attainment, the Stockholder Vision Alignment PSUs shall be forfeited in their entirety.
In addition to the vesting conditions set forth above, vesting is also subject to the Participant being in full compliance with our Code of Business Conduct and other compliance policies, including our Clawback Policy, and the NEO agreements with us (including, but not limited to, confidentiality obligations and any applicable restrictive covenants) at the time of any vesting event. Failure to satisfy these conditions will result in the Earned Stockholder Vision Alignment PSUs being forfeited.
4. Net Earnings Assets per Diluted Share PSUs
The NEA PSUs granted to our NEOs were structured to vest based on our net earning assets per diluted share (“NEA per Share”) where net earning assets represents Gross Earning Assets, plus total cash, less adjusted debt and less pass-through financing obligations, as of the same measurement date, in addition to satisfaction of a service-based vesting component.
NEA PSUs were eligible to performance-vest based on our level of achievement of NEA per Share during the performance period which ran from January 1, 2023 through December 31, 2023. We selected a one-year performance period for this award because forecasting the results for this metric beyond one year was particularly difficult due to significant policy changes, such as the Net Billing Tariff in California and the timing of benefits from the Inflation Reduction Act. This resulted in an award with a combined period of three years (one performance period + two years of service vesting).
Achievement of the threshold, target, and maximum performance targets of NEA per Share will result in 50%, 100%, and 200%, respectively, of the target number of shares of our common stock subject to the NEA PSU awards with linear interpolation upon any achievement between the threshold and target performance levels or target and maximum performance levels. After determining the applicable achievement, the NEA PSUs would not vest until the NEO satisfied an additional service-based vesting requirement, based upon continued service through April 3, 2026.

Achievement LevelNEA per Share ThresholdsPayout Percentage
Maximum≥$28.82200%
Target$25.37100%
Threshold$23.6550%
<Threshold<$23.650%
We achieved NEA per Share of $22.65 for 2023, resulting in 0% attainment and the forfeiture of the NEA PSUs (comprising the forfeiture of 12.5% of the NEOs’ 2023 target equity compensation). We set performance levels for this award assuming a quicker volume recovery after the transition to the Net Billing Tariff in our largest market of California than we achieved, in addition to effects related to rapidly accelerating battery adoption and our disciplined go-to-market approach, all of which resulted in lower volumes than initially expected. These lower volumes ultimately resulted in correspondingly lower NEA per Share, resulting in attainment below the threshold vesting level. While this result was lower than our threshold levels, we feel that it validates our commitment to pay-for-performance.
Following our stockholder engagement in 2023, the Committee decided we would not issue a performance-based equity award with a metric of NEA per share in 2024.

(1)Mses. Powell and Steele and Mr. Dickson’s TVG PSUs were awarded in 2021. Mr. Abajian’s TVG PSU was granted in 2022 in connection with his promotion to Chief Financial Officer, using the original TVG thresholds from the 2021 TVG PSUs.

(2)The milestone targets for the TVG PSUs listed in the table above were set in 2021 and reflect the definition of TVG (and associated discount rate) applicable at that time.

(3)Mses. Powell and Steele and Mr. Abajian’s TVG PSUs have the vesting schedule represented in the table above. Mr. Dickson’s TVG PSU has a performance period from 2022-2025, with 25% vesting per year based upon achievement of the applicable thresholds.

2024 Compensation Philosophy
Commencing in 2024, in direct response to stockholder feedback following the 2023 annual stockholders meeting, we are enhancing the structure of the compensation programs to our NEOs. These enhancements, as detailed below, entail a heightened emphasis on performance-based compensation aligned with long-term value drivers for our stockholders:
Sunrun Inc. — 2024 Proxy Statement
55

Table of Contents
The Compensation Committee determined that PSUs will account for at least 55% of the total equity compensation awarded to our NEOs;
The Compensation Committee determined that such performance-based equity awards will incorporate multi-year performance criteria, including metrics aimed at incentivizing enhanced stockholder value, stock price appreciation, and Cash Generation in the long term;
Our compensation framework will avoid overlapping metrics across performance-based equity awards, and our cash bonus plan;
We have revised the components of our 2024 Annual Incentive Plan to reflect key stockholder feedback and to more closely align with long term value drivers for our stockholders. The Compensation Committee selected Net Subscriber Value (adjusted for market discount rates, which is more closely aligned with Cash Generation), storage and solar volumes, safety, and customer experience. The primary weighting is applied to the adjusted Net Subscriber Value, and notably, no metric uses a fixed discount rate;
Our Annual Incentive Plan will continue to include an additional ESG-related metric related to employee safety; and
In light of an extraordinarily challenging macroeconomic environment and suboptimal stock performance, our CEO requested that her 2024 base salary remain unchanged, foregoing any customary increases.
For 2024, we will continue to offer the following components of base salary, annual cash bonus plan, time-based equity awards, health, welfare, and retirement programs.
We believe that providing a portfolio of performance-based equity awards, time-based RSUs, and cash compensation supports the objectives of our long-term incentive compensation program by further aligning the interests of our executive officers with those of our stockholders, balancing performance and retention considerations, and enabling us to use our equity compensation resources more efficiently.

Benefits Programs and Perquisites
Our employee benefit programs, including our 401(k) plans, employee stock purchase plan, and health and welfare programs, including health savings accounts and flexible spending arrangements, are designed to provide a competitive level of benefits to our employees generally, including our executive officers and their family members including spouses, qualifying domestic partners and children. We adjust our employee benefit programs as needed based upon regular monitoring of applicable laws and practices and the competitive market. Our executive officers are eligible to participate in the same employee benefit plans and programs, and on the same terms and conditions, as all other U.S. full-time employees. The Sunrun 401(k) plan provides for employer matching contributions of 100% of the first 1% of compensation and 50% of the next 5% of compensation deferred under the plan. Contributions made by employees in the Sunrun 401(k) plan are immediately vested while matching contributions made by the Company are 100% vested after two years of service.
Currently, we do not view perquisites or other personal benefits as a significant component of our executive compensation program. Accordingly, we do not generally provide perquisites to our executive team.
Severance and Change in Control Benefits
Post-Employment Compensation
In August 2018, we adopted the Severance Plan, applicable to our executive officers and certain other employees, whose benefits upon a change in control are described below. The Severance Plan provides for severance payments and benefits in the event of a qualifying termination of employment. The Severance Plan was adopted due to the automatic expiration of our predecessor severance benefit plan which occurred in May 2018.
The following benefits are provided under the Severance Plan in connection with any termination without cause or good reason that occurs other than within three months prior to, or 12 months following, a change in control (as defined in the Severance Plan):
Sunrun Inc. — 2024 Proxy Statement
56

Table of Contents
12 months of base salary and COBRA premiums (Mses. Powell and Jurich and Mr. Fenster) or six months of base salary and COBRA premiums (Ms. Steele and Messrs. Abajian and Dickson);
A pro-rata bonus amount based on the average bonus (and commission if applicable to such individual for the prior two years, or if none, a pro-rata portion of the target bonus in the year of termination; and
50% equity vesting acceleration for all awards other than the Stockholder Vision Alignment PSUs (with the vesting of any equity awards subject to performance vesting accelerated assuming the performance criteria had been achieved at 100% of target and then multiplying the number of shares representing that 100% of target amount by 50%).
If termination occurs before the end of the performance period, all of the Stockholder Vision Alignment PSUs shall be forfeited.
If termination occurs after the end of the performance period, all time-based vesting conditions for the Stockholder Vision Alignment PSUs shall be waived and a number of Stockholder Vision Alignment PSUs shall vest equal to 50% of the difference of A minus B, where A is the number of Stockholder Vision Alignment PSUs that met the performance conditions at the end of the performance period and B is the number of Stockholder Vision Alignment PSUs that already vested in full as of the date of termination.
The following benefits are provided under the Severance Plan to Mses. Powell and Jurich and Mr. Fenster in connection with any termination without cause or good reason resignation that occurs within three months prior to, or 12 months following, a change in control:
18 months of base salary and COBRA premiums;
150% target annual bonus;
100% equity vesting acceleration for all awards other than the Stockholder Vision Alignment PSUs (with the vesting of any equity awards subject to performance vesting accelerated assuming the performance criteria had been achieved at 100%);
The percent of equity vesting acceleration for the earned Stockholder Vision Alignment PSUs will be determined by the actual stock price received in connection with a change in control and cash generation assumed at target performance will vest if termination occurs before the end of the performance period;
100% of the earned but unvested Stockholder Vision Alignment PSUs shall vest if termination occurs after the end of the performance period based on actual achievement of the performance conditions during the performance period; and
18 months post-termination exercise period for options.
The following benefits are provided under the Severance Plan to Ms. Steele and Messrs. Abajian and Dickson in connection with any termination without cause or good reason that occurs within three months prior to, or 12 months following, a change in control:
12 months of base salary and COBRA premiums;
100% target annual bonus;
100% equity vesting acceleration for all awards other than the Stockholder Vision Alignment PSUs (with the vesting of any equity awards subject to performance vesting accelerated assuming the performance criteria had been achieved at 100%);
The percent of equity vesting acceleration for the earned Stockholder Vision Alignment PSUs will be determined by the actual stock price received in connection with a change in control and cash generation assumed at target performance will vest if termination occurs before the end of the performance period;
100% of the earned but unvested Stockholder Vision Alignment PSUs will vest if termination occurs after the end of the performance period; and
12 months post-termination exercise period for options.
Sunrun Inc. — 2024 Proxy Statement

Table of Contents
The Severance Plan benefits were approved by the Compensation Committee after considering the level of benefits provided under the predecessor severance plan and reviewing competitive market data for our peer group. The Compensation Committee determined that these benefits were both competitively reasonable and necessary to recruit and retain key executives. Enhanced severance benefits are provided for a qualifying termination that occurs in connection with a change in control because the severance benefits are also intended to eliminate, or at least reduce, the reluctance of our executive officers to diligently consider and pursue potential change in control transactions that may be in the best interests of our stockholders.
Other Compensation Policies
Equity Awards Grant Policy
The Compensation Committee has adopted a policy governing equity awards that are granted to our executive officers, employees and members of our Board. This policy provides that all equity awards will be granted either by our Board, Compensation Committee, or a subcommittee of the Compensation Committee, at a meeting or by unanimous written consent, subject to equity award guidelines adopted by our Board. The exercise price of all stock options and SARs must be equal to or greater than the closing trading price of our common stock on the date of grant.
Insider Trading Policy
Our insider trading policy prohibits our employees, including our executive officers, non-employee directors, and consultants from engaging in short sales, transactions in put or call options, hedging transactions or other inherently speculative transactions with respect to our securities at any time. In addition, no officer, director, other employee or consultant may margin any of our securities, including without limitation, pledging or borrowing against such securities, at any time. Our insider trading policy encourages our executive officers and members of our Board to adopt plans in accordance with Exchange Act Rule 10b5-1 for sales of securities that they beneficially own, and provides that such individuals may not otherwise trade in our equity securities during “blackout” periods. Our Rule 10b5-1 Trading Plan Guidelines are applicable to any employees, members of our Board, consultants of the Company, and executive officers who adopt such trading plans.
Compensation Policies and Practices as They Relate to Risk Management
The Compensation Committee has reviewed our executive and employee compensation programs and does not believe that our compensation policies and practices encourage undue or inappropriate risk taking or create risks that are reasonably likely to have a material adverse effect on us. The reasons for the Compensation Committee’s determination include the following: 
We structure our compensation program to consist of both fixed and variable components. The fixed (or base salary) component is designed to provide income independent of our stock price performance so that employees will not focus exclusively on stock price performance to the detriment of other important business metrics. The time-based equity component of our compensation program is intended to discourage employees from taking actions that focus only on our short-term success and helps align our employees with our stockholders and on our longer-term success. Our employee equity-based awards have time-based vesting, generally over a period of four years. A significant portion of the compensation paid to our executive officers and the members of our Board is in the form of equity with time-based vesting. In 2021, we introduced performance-based equity awards to incentivize and reward senior leaders for driving achievement of Company performance goals. These performance-based equity awards vest upon the attainment of specified goals during a set period of time and the Compensation Committee’s approval.
We maintain internal controls over the measurement and calculation of material financial information, which are designed to prevent this information from being manipulated by any employee, including our executive officers.
While we do not cap the cash incentive award for our sales incentive plans to provide maximum incentive for our sales teams to meet and exceed their objectives, we do maintain internal controls over the determination of sales incentive awards, which allow us to ensure that we are awarding only those sales people who operate with absolute integrity, and we believe such internal controls help to prevent problematic behaviors.
Sunrun Inc. — 2024 Proxy Statement

Table of Contents
Our employees are required to comply with our code of business conduct and ethics, which covers, among other things, accuracy in financial and business records keeping. Further, our sales teams are also subject to a specific sales code of conduct which we believe enforces customer-centered behaviors including compliance with all consumer protection laws and fosters a culture of absolute integrity in our employees. The vesting of an employee’s equity awards are conditioned upon their compliance with their agreements with us, including, but not limited to, these codes.
As part of our policies on trading in securities, we prohibit hedging and pledging transactions involving our securities so that our executive officers, employees, non-employee directors, and consultants cannot insulate themselves from the effects of poor stock price performance.
Tax and Accounting Considerations
Limitation on Deductibility of Executive Compensation
Under Section 162(m) of the Code (“Section 162(m)”), compensation paid to each of our “covered employees” that exceeds $1 million per taxable year is generally non-deductible unless the compensation qualifies for (i) certain grandfathered exceptions (including the “performance-based compensation” exception) for certain compensation paid pursuant to a written binding contract in effect on November 2, 2017 and not materially modified on or after such date or (ii) the reliance period exception for certain compensation paid by corporations that became publicly held on or before December 20, 2019.
Although the Compensation Committee will continue to consider tax implications as one factor in determining executive compensation, the Compensation Committee also looks at other factors in making its decisions and retains the flexibility to provide compensation for our NEOs in a manner consistent with the goals of our executive compensation program and the best interests of the Company and its stockholders, which may include providing for compensation that is not deductible by the Company due to the deduction limit under Section 162(m). The Compensation Committee also retains the flexibility to modify compensation that was initially intended to be exempt from the deduction limit under Section 162(m) if it determines that such modifications are consistent with the Company’s business needs.
No Tax Reimbursement of Parachute Payments and Deferred Compensation
We did not provide any executive officer, including any NEO, with a “gross-up” or other reimbursement payment for any tax liability that he or she might owe as a result of the application of Sections 280G, 4999, or 409A of the Code during 2023, and we have not agreed and are not otherwise obligated to provide any NEO with such a “gross-up” or other tax reimbursement.
Accounting Treatment
We account for stock compensation in accordance with the authoritative guidance set forth in ASC Topic 718, which requires companies to measure and recognize the compensation expense for all share-based awards made to employees and directors, including stock options, PSU awards, RSU awards and shares acquired through our ESPP, over the period during which the award recipient is required to perform services in exchange for the award (for executive officers, generally the four-year vesting period of the award). We estimate the fair value of stock options and shares acquired through our ESPP using the Black-Scholes option pricing model. This calculation is performed for accounting purposes and reported in the compensation tables below.

Our Compensation Committee has maintained a policy for recoupment of incentive compensation which was last amended and restated in October 2023 in accordance with new SEC requirements and Nasdaq listing standards. After being amended and restated, the Clawback Policy provides for the repayment of any incentive compensation paid to our current or former senior leaders, including Senior Vice Presidents and executive officers (“covered officers”), where the payments were granted, earned or vested in whole or in part on the attainment of a financial reporting measure or operational performance measure and (i) the Company is being required to prepare an accounting restatement due to the
Sunrun Inc. — 2024 Proxy Statement

material noncompliance of the Company with any financial reporting requirement under applicable securities laws, regardless of whether or not the covered officer’s misconduct contributed to such accounting restatement, or (ii) the Company’s restatement of operational results due to a material error and it is determined that the covered officer’s misconduct contributed to such operational results error. This policy applies to current and former Senior Vice Presidents and executive officers subject to the reporting requirements of Section 16 of the Exchange Act who were covered officers during the performance period for any incentive compensation. The amount that is required to be repaid is the amount erroneously paid or earned in excess of what would have been paid or earned under the accounting restatement or operational results restatement, computed without regard to any taxes paid. In addition to the foregoing, our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer are subject to the compensation recovery provisions of Section 304 of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act.
Hedging and Pledging Prohibition
Our insider trading policy prohibits our executive officers, directors, employees and consultants from purchasing our securities on margin, borrowing against any account in which our securities are held or pledging our securities as collateral for any purpose. Our insider trading policy also prohibits such individuals from engaging in any hedging transaction with respect to our securities.
Executive Stock Ownership Guidelines (“Executive SOGs”)
The Compensation Committee maintains SOGs to further align the interests of the Company’s executive officers with the interests of the Company’s stockholders. Under the Executive SOGs, our executives are expected to accumulate and hold a minimum number of shares of the Company’s common stock. Our Executive SOGs provide that:
Our Chief Executive Officer is expected to accumulate and hold an amount of qualifying Sunrun equity securities equal to the lesser of the value of 5x (500%) or five times her annual base salary, or a fixed number of shares having a value equal to five times her annual base salary on the date of adoption of the guidelines (July 29, 2021); and
Each other executive officer is expected to accumulate and hold an amount of qualifying Sunrun equity securities equal to the lesser of the value of 3x (300%) or three times his or her annual base salary, or a fixed number of shares having a value equal to three times his or her annual base salary on the date of adoption of the guidelines.
As of the end of 2023, all of our executive officers were in compliance with our Executive SOGs.

______________________
(1)The amount reported for 2023 represents the following: In the first quarter of 2023, the Compensation Committee provided Mr. Dickson with a one-time $500,000 cash award in recognition of his contributions leading the nation's largest solar sales fleet during a dynamic period that included unprecedented policy changes in our largest market and historically high interest rates and market volatility, while simultaneously deploying multiple innovative new products and paths to market.
(2)The amounts reported represent the grant date fair value of the stock options or stock awards, as applicable, granted to the NEOs during the applicable year as computed in accordance with ASC 718. The assumptions used in calculating the grant date fair value of the stock options or stock awards, as applicable, reported are set forth in Note 2 of our consolidated financial statements contained in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2023. Note that amounts reported in this column reflect the accounting cost for these stock or option awards, as applicable, and do not correspond to the actual economic value that may be received by the NEOs from the stock or option awards.
(3)The amounts reported for 2023 are inclusive of the TSR PSUs, NEA PSUs, and SVA PSUs for Mses. Powell and Steele and Messrs. Abajian and Dickson. A description of these PSU awards and the performance-based vesting conditions are provided in the section titled “Compensation Discussion and Analysis - Equity Awards - PSU Awards.” The value of each TSR PSU award on the grant date (assuming the target level of performance conditions will be achieved) is $832,388 for Ms. Powell; $567,531 for Mr. Abajian; $567,531 for Mr. Dickson; and $340,519 for Ms. Steele, which is based on the product of the target vesting of the TSR PSUs and the grant date fair value of the award. The value of each NEA

PSU award on the grant date (assuming the target level of performance conditions will be achieved) is $641,737 for Ms. Powell; $437,543 for Mr. Abajian; $437,543 for Mr. Dickson; and $262,526 for Ms. Steele, which is based on the product of the target vesting of the NEA PSUs and the grant date fair value of the award. The value of each SVA PSU award on the grant date (assuming the target level of performance conditions will be achieved) is $6,426,109 for Ms. Powell; $2,920,954, for Mr. Abajian; $2,920,954 for Mr. Dickson; and $1,752,564 for Ms. Steele, which is based on the product of the target vesting of the SVA PSUs and the grant date fair value of the award stock.
(4)The amounts reported for 2023 represent the amounts earned and payable under the 2023 bonus plan, all of which were paid in March 2024. Our Board formally adopted an Annual Incentive Plan (“AIP”) for our executives in December 2014. Under our AIP, our Compensation Committee retains discretionary authority to modify final bonus payouts for any executive based on the Compensation Committee’s assessment of such executive’s overall performance. Accordingly, the AIP bonus awards paid to our NEOs for 2023 performance were approved on February 29, 2024 at a level equal to 90% of their target bonus.
(5)All of our employees, including our NEOs, are eligible to participate in our 401(k) plan. The amounts shown during the applicable year for each NEO reflect matching contributions made to each of our NEOs in the applicable year to our 401(k) plans applicable to all employees and as described elsewhere in this proxy statement.
(6)Ms. Powell’s 2023 Total compensation excluding the value of the $6,426,109 one-time SVA PSU would have been $7,324,075; included in the Stock Awards column and thus the Total column is a fair-value assessment at the time of the grant for the SVA PSU. This SVA PSU has rigorous stock price appreciation and cash generation requirements and will only have value if the Company achieves both (i) a stock price of at least $45 per share and (b) Cash Generation per diluted share of at least $2.00. If both requirements are not met, the SVA PSU has zero realizable value for Ms. Powell. Please see the section titled “Pay-for-Performance and Stockholder Alignment” for information regarding her realizable pay compared with recent stock price performance.
(7)Ms. Powell was awarded a $500,000 bonus in 2022 related to her performance in 2021. This $500,000 bonus is included in the $1,500,000 reported in the Bonus column for 2021. She did not receive an additional bonus for her performance in 2022.
(8)Mr. Dickson’s 2023 Total compensation excluding the value of the one-time Stockholder Vision Alignment PSU would have been $4,980,526; included in the Stock Awards column is a fair-value assessment at the time of the grant for the SVA PSU. This award has rigorous stock price appreciation and cash generation requirements and will only have value if the Company achieves both (i) a stock price of at least $45 per share and (b) Cash Generation per diluted share of at least $2.00. If both requirements are not met, the SVA PSU has zero realizable value for Mr. Dickson. Please see the section titled “Pay-for-Performance and Stockholder Alignment” for information regarding his realizable pay compared with recent stock price performance.
(9)Mr. Abajian’s 2023 Total compensation excluding the value of the one-time SVA PSU would have been $4,480,526; included in the Stock Awards column is a fair-value assessment at the time of the grant for the SVA PSU. This award has rigorous stock price appreciation and cash generation requirements and will only have value if the Company achieves both (i) a stock price of at least $45 per share and (b) Cash Generation per diluted share of at least $2.00. If both requirements are not met, the SVA PSU has zero realizable value for Mr. Abajian. Please see the section titled “Pay-for-Performance and Stockholder Alignment” for information regarding his realizable pay compared with recent stock price performance.
(10)Ms. Steele’s 2023 Total compensation excluding the value of the one-time Stockholder Vision Alignment PSU would have been $2,939,713; included in the Stock Awards column is a fair-value assessment at the time of the grant for the Stockholder Vision Alignment PSU. This award has rigorous stock price appreciation and cash generation requirements and will only have value if the Company achieves both (i) a stock price of at least $45 per share and (b) Cash Generation per diluted share of at least $2.00. If both requirements are not met, the SVA PSU has zero realizable value for Ms. Steele. Please see the section titled “Pay-for-Performance and Stockholder Alignment” for information regarding her realizable pay compared with recent stock price performance.
(11)Mr. Fenster transitioned from his position as a full-time employee of the Company to part-time employment status and ceased to be an “executive officer” as defined in the Exchange Act, effective March 1, 2023.
