Sunnova Energy International Inc. made a few announcements to close out 2019: 1) The expansion of its Sunnova SunSafe solar + battery storage system offering into the state of Florida, 2) the addition of a 15-year financing plan for add-on solar battery storage. This new, first of its kind, 15-year add-on solar battery storage offering is immediately available in all existing Sunnova SunSafe markets.
“In addition to the broad choice of financing offerings we already provide, we are proud to now offer multiple financing options for our Sunnova SunSafe solar energy plans, with the 15-year offering helping to lower the cost to gain access to reliable energy storage,” said Michael Grasso, Chief Marketing Officer of Sunnova Energy International. “We’re here to provide a better energy service at a better price. We’re able to do that because we provide our dealers and customers with a variety of financing and product solutions.”
From 2008 – 2017, Florida experienced 848 power outages affecting ~25 million people, more than any other state for the same time period. Extreme weather—from hurricanes to tropical storms—has caused severe power outages for Floridians. In 2017, Hurricane Irma alone knocked out power to 6.7 million customers—64% of all customer accounts in the state.
“As weather events continue to increase in frequency and impact, we are proud to be able to offer our customers energy resiliency and reliability with our SunSafe solar + battery storage offerings,” said William J. (John) Berger, Chief Executive Officer of Sunnova Energy International. “With regular power outages becoming an unfortunate reality, back-up power isn’t just a nice-to-have anymore, it’s a necessity.”
The Sunshine State is the 13th market where Sunnova now offers SunSafe.
