At Sunrun, we are adapting to a hybrid-work return to office model, where some of the workforce return to the office while others continue working remotely. ChromeOS devices are our default and used for the majority of our teams at Sunrun. For our return to office plans we are expanding ChromeOS to other departments because it’s an adaptable and fast operating system that's scalable and cost effective. It meets all our security and compliance industry needs. As we return to the office, we are planning to also restart the Grab & Go program for employees.
