Sunnova Energy Corporation, residential solar-plus-storage service providers, announced it has expanded its service in New York to give homeowners access to Sunnova SunSafe solar energy generation and home battery storage service. Sunnova has been offering residential solar services in New York through its network of partners since 2014.
New York consistently ranks in the top 10 states for installing solar and potential growth. Through the state’s Reforming the Energy Vision (REV), New York has taken significant steps to transform its energy systems with commitments to solar energy and battery storage. New York residents are eligible for both federal and state tax credits, and with the purchase of a solar system, residents may be eligible for a 30% federal tax credit.
“New York has been a pioneer in America’s energy transition journey with an innovative energy policy that allows consumers greater access to clean, reliable energy. As the region faces more severe and frequent storms, homeowners will be able to live life uninterrupted through our residential solar plus battery storage service,” said William J. Berger, CEO of Sunnova Energy Corporation.
In the case of a utility power outage, SunSafe automatically detects when to switch from solar energy to stored energy. Unlike solar-only systems, it will continue producing and storing backup energy when the electric grid goes down, giving homeowners peace of mind and reducing the homeowner’s reliance upon the grid.
“Year after year, the winter season brings New Yorkers frequent power outages and Sunnova SunSafe now gives homeowners the ability to power energy independence and protect their families from these outages,” said Michael Grasso, CMO of Sunnova Energy Corporation.
Sunnova applies a 25-year warranty for the solar-plus-storage system.
In addition to New York, Sunnova also offers SunSafe in Massachusetts, Maryland, Texas, Hawaii, Arizona, California, Puerto Rico, Guam and Saipan.
