News Release

San Jose, CA- The San Jose Giants announced that it will be one of 16 teams featured in a multi-year partnership between Minor League BaseballT (MiLBT) and Sunrun (Nasdaq: RUN), the largest dedicated residential solar company in the United States. The partnership, now in its second year, was inked in 2016. As the "Preferred Residential Solar Power Provider of Minor League Baseball," Sunrun will help educate baseball fans across the country on the financial and environmental benefits of Sunrun solar.

The San Jose Giants join a list of clubs in all classifications of MiLB to support Sunrun's campaign to educate fans on the financial and environmental benefits of Sunrun solar. The campaign aims to raise awareness of the Sunrun brand, showcasing that it can provide homeowners access to technology that enables energy generation, storage and management.

As part of the campaign, San Jose Giants centerfielder Bryan Reynolds has been selected to Sunrun's 'The Future is Bright' lineup. The list, compiled by participating clubs, highlights one top prospect in each of the 16 communities that Sunrun serves in partnership with MiLB. Reynolds batted .313 in his professional debut in 2016 after being selected in the second round out of Vanderbilt University. The 22-year-old switch hitter drove in 38 runs in 56 games in 2016.

"Bryan Reynolds is a top prospect in the San Francisco Giants organization and certainly deserves to be included in Sunrun's 'The Future is Bright' lineup," said San Jose Giants Chief Operating Officer and General Manager, Mark Wilson. "We're proud to partner with Sunrun again this season to educate our fans on the benefits of using solar to power their homes."

This season, the San Jose Giants will also host "Sunrun Sundays," giving young fans the opportunity to escort players to their on-field positions as part of Sunrun's Jr. All-Stars program.
