Sunnova Energy has expanded its solar-plus-storage installation coverage area to New Jersey. Sunnova has begun offering its Sunnova SunSafe Easy Own 25-year solar-plus-battery-storage service to new customers through its regional dealer network. Sunnova will also be offering its 10-year Sunnova +SunSafe add-on battery storage service offering to any homeowner with an existing home solar system.
In addition, Sunnova also announced that it has begun offering its Sunnova +SunSafe add-on battery storage offering to existing Sunnova customers and non-Sunnova solar homes across three independently owned California utilities: Pacific Gas & Electric Company (PG&E), San Diego Gas and Electric (SDGE) and Southern California Edison (SCE).
“What Sunnova SunSafe provides New Jersey homeowners is a value proposition that is centered around peace of mind. When the grid goes down, unlike solar-only systems, Sunnova SunSafe will continue producing and storing energy for your home’s most needed appliances,” said William J. (John) Berger, Chief Executive Officer of Sunnova Energy Corporation.
In California, PG&E recently announced its fire-prevention plan to intentionally cut off power to customers during periods of high winds.
“There has never been a better time to power your home with solar-plus-battery-storage in California,” said Meghan Nutting, Executive Vice President of Policy and Communication at Sunnova. “We all rely on the consistent availability of electricity to power our lives, and solar plus battery storage means that even though the grid may be down, you will have access to back-up power.”
In addition to providing back-up power when the grid goes down, in California, the Sunnova SunSafe system also provides protection from peak utility rates. Intelligent control technology within the system automatically manages the flow of energy between the solar energy system, the battery, the home and the electric grid. This helps protect homeowners from high utility rates when utilizing a time-of-use utility rate plan.
Sunnova now offers Sunnova SunSafe in 12 U.S. states and territories, including New Jersey, Massachusetts, New York, Maryland, Puerto Rico, Texas, Arizona, Nevada, California, Hawaii, Guam and Saipan.
