Sunnova Energy International Inc., a US-based solar and storage service provider for residential households, announced that the company will offer its services to Washington, DC
DC homeowners have access to all of Sunnova's loan products, including the Solar-Only System, Sunnova SunSafe Solar + Storage Service, and SunSafe + Auxiliary Battery Service. In addition, Sunnova coordinates the roof replacement service through a licensed contractual partner for home owners who want to use solar systems but need a new roof.
“Decentralized and decarbonised energy solutions are now more than ever at the forefront of consumer demand,” says William J. Berger, CEO of Sunnova. “Washington, DC has the most ambitious renewable energy target in the country and we look forward to helping the state achieve that goal while providing better energy service at a better price.”
From 2008 to 2017, over 2.5 million people were affected by power outages in DC. With Sunnova SunSafe and + SunSafe, customers have access to backup power with which their essential appliances can be operated. In contrast to a purely solar system, Sunnova SunSafe generates energy during the day and sends excess energy to the battery for use at night – or whenever it is needed.
Electricity prices for residential properties have risen steadily year after year. In Washington, DC, the average rate has increased 63% since 2002. With Sunnova's solar services, homeowners can control their energy bills by producing their own clean energy. Sunnova finds that customers can set a low tariff and always know what they are paying for. Sunnova SunSafe and Sunnova + SunSafe also offer protection against peak utility costs to optimize homeowner savings and maximize net metering credit. The intelligent control technology within the system makes the customer experience child's play and automatically manages the flow of energy between the solar system, the battery, the house and the power grid.
The solar and Solar + storage systems from Sunnova are covered by 25 years of Sunnova Protect, which includes maintenance, monitoring, repair and replacement. Sunnova's Add-On + SunSafe batteries are covered by a manufacturer's guarantee in which the company coordinates all maintenance and repair work and assumes all costs for the repair or replacement of the covered parts.
