California’s transition to a cleaner and resilient grid will require energy to be available at different times during the day. As most Californians know, the utilities ask us to reduce consumption during heat waves and other grid events. By participating in Sunnova’s PowerGrid Protect™ Program, you are providing clean energy when the grid needs it most! Even better, you will continue to receive the energy credits from your utility and you will receive a $100 reward card from Sunnova for your participation.
Sunnova will manage and optimize your battery storage settings to make sure that the clean energy from your system is being used when the grid needs it most. Your battery will still discharge energy to your home just as it did before, while Sunnova makes sure the clean power usage is optimized for the local power grid.
Your Sunnova SunSafe® and/or +SunSafe system will participate only during times when the local power grid is experiencing more demand than is typical in your local area. Sunnova works to ensure that your battery will always maintain a reserve and you will still be using your own stored solar power from the battery.
Yes, your battery will always maintain a minimum amount of reserve energy while participating so it will be ready to backup in the event of a potential outage.
