I'm selling (transfer) my home with a Sunnova home solar system. What do I need to know?

If you sell your home, you may be able to transfer your Sunnova solar energy plan to the homebuyer, passing the solar benefits as well. If you’re the seller, it’s important that you log into your MySunnova portal and submit your home transfer request as soon as you have a potential buyer for your home. You may also contact us by phone at 866.SUNNOVA, or by email at customerservice@sunnova.com.

When you submit your home transfer, you will need to provide us with the following information:

  • Name(s) of any potential buyer(s)
  • Realtor(s)
  • Name of escrow company
  • Name of title company
  • Name of anyone else who is eligible to check on the status of the solar system transfer

When transferring your service plan, a potential homebuyer must pass a credit check and sign a transfer agreement. In lieu of a credit check, we can accept a deposit. Please call us for more details.

If you are the seller’s realtor, you may proceed with initiating the home transfer upon clicking “Start Transfer”.

Once the home sale has closed, the transfer agreement goes into effect and the buyer is officially a Sunnova customer.
