Take the first step toward solar savings.

The solar process shouldn’t be complicated. By partnering with professional installers in your area, we’re able to provide you with responsive service tailored to the local community and your specific needs.

This boots-on-the-ground approach to business sets us apart from other solar providers. But most important, it helps get your system up and running as quickly as possible.



Step 1


Request a quote, and one of our local installation partners will evaluate your home for potential solar savings and generate your custom proposal.

Step 2


Sign your solar service agreement to lock in a lower rate for clean power. We will contact you to go over the agreement terms and other important details.

Step 3

Design & Installation

We will work with the installation partner to design a solar system that generates power as stated in your agreement. Your installation will be scheduled once we obtain the necessary permits and approvals.

Step 4

Inspection & Net Meter

Your utility company will inspect your home’s solar system and set up your net meter to keep track of energy you consume from the electric grid, as well as excess energy you export to it.

Step 5

Savings & Monitoring

Your solar system is generating power, which means it’s time for you to enjoy the savings. We monitor your production 24/7*, but you can also check it by logging in to your Sunnova account. Get help any time by calling 855.277.6379.

A Sunnova partner in your area will install your solar system. We will insure, monitor and maintain the panels and other components for the lifetime of your agreement.


Solar panels supply DC power. An inverter is used to convert DC power into AC power to supply energy to your home.


Your solar system should provide most of the AC electricity needed to power your home.1 The utility grid will supply any additional power needed.


Your utility net meter measures the energy you consume from and send to the utility electric grid, while your solar meter measures the energy your solar system produces.
Note: You will have two meters.


Any excess energy you produce is distributed back to the utility grid. The utility company may buy back or provide credit for excess energy. Check with your local utility company for specific details.2

1 Your electricity needs will vary based on your usage, the energy efficiency of your home and other factors. Your solar system’s production will vary based on weather and other factors.

2 Sunnova makes no guarantees regarding credit for net energy exported to the electric grid, and any credit provided (now or in the future) is subject to change or termination by executive, legislative or regulatory action.
