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 well1. If you’re the seller, it’s important that you contact us by phone at 866.SUNNOVA, or by email at customerservice@sunnova.com as soon as you decide to sell your home.

When you call to inform us of your home sale, you will need to provide us with the following information:

  • Name(s) of any potential buyer(s)
  • Agents
  • 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.

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