Sunrun Takes First Delivery Of Ford F-150 Lightning EV Pickups

One of the “killer apps” present in the Ford F-150 Lightning is its enhanced Pro Power Onboard generator, which enables the EV pickup to charge all sorts of things – including other electrified vehicles and even entire homes for days or weeks at a time. The latter capability – which is officially known as Ford Intelligent Backup Power – utilizes a partnership with the leading solar company Sunrun, which is also Ford’s preferred company when it comes to installing at-home charging solutions like the 80-amp Ford Charge Station Pro and Home Integration System. However, Sunrun is also utilizing a number of Ford F-150 Lightning pickups in its own fleet, which it just took delivery of.

Sunrun joins a host of other companies and government entities that have recently added the Ford F-150 Lightning to their fleets, a list that includes the city of Lakeland, Florida, Michigan State University, and United Rentals, to name just a few. “We’re committed to decreasing transportation emissions by transitioning half of Sunrun’s vehicle fleet to electric or hybrid by the end of 2025,” the company said in a statement. “That transition is well underway with the addition of our new fleet of electric Ford Motor Company F-150 Lightnings rolling out across the country.”

Based in San Francisco, California, Sunrun is the country’s largest residential solar and battery storage installer. The company didn’t specify how many F-150 Lighting pickups it has taken delivery of thus far, but did post a single picture showing a large group of them on social media.

In addition to using these Ford F-150 Lightning pickups for installations and service requests, Sunrun also plans on utilizing them as a portable backup energy source, which is precisely what customers can do when they pair their trucks with the aforementioned equipment.

Brett's lost track of all the Fords he's owned over the years and how much he's spent modifying them, but his current money pits include an S550 Mustang and 13th gen F-150.
