Sunnova Energy – Making a solar energy more accessible by providing customized solar services


All life on Earth is supported by the sun.  This amazing resource radiates energy and provides us both heat and light by fusing hydrogen into helium at its core.  We call this solar radiation. Only about half of this solar radiation makes it to the Earth's surface. The rest is either absorbed or reflected by clouds and the atmosphere. Still, we receive enough power from the sun to meet all humanity's power demands millions of times over.  Solar energy power from the sun is a vast, inexhaustible, and clean resource.

Ever-shining services provided by Sunnova Energy

New Home Solar: Sunnova SunSafe® solar panel + battery storage system offers predictable energy costs and backup energy during power outages. During a power outage, a solar-only system will automatically turn off. If you have a solar + storage system and the power goes out, your most needed appliances and lights can be powered by your solar + battery system. If you live in a market with a time of use (TOU) rates, your battery will be automatically configured to protect you from peak rates and maximize your net metering credits. The firm only installs industry-leading, proven technology like Generac PWRcell™ and Tesla Powerwall.

Add-on Solar Battery Storage: With Sunnova +SunSafe®, you can add a Tesla Powerwall to your existing home solar system with little to no upfront costs. Your Tesla Powerwall comes with a limited manufacturer warranty for the term of your agreement. If you're a Sunnova +SunSafe® customer, the firm takes care of maintenance and repairs. Even after your agreement ends, the battery will still have the capacity as outlined in your warranty. It also reduces the electricity that you get from your utility. During peak pricing hours, your solar panels and Powerwall can power your home. Any excess solar energy production will be sent to the grid to maximize your net metering credits.

Home Solar Protection Plans: The firm proactively monitors your home solar system. Suppose something goes wrong and lets you know right away so you can take steps to address it. The company's warranty covers equipment repairs and part replacements. If there are any issues with your solar system, its expert team will manage any maintenance and repairs. If your solar system does not produce the amount of energy they estimate over the term of your Sunnova Protect™ Service plan agreement, they'll refund you the difference at up to 50% of the contract price.
