When you purchase a solar system through a conventional solar loan, you’ll probably have to come up with a down payment of several thousand dollars. But it doesn’t end there. The costs associated with maintenance and repair for the system usually come out of your own pocket -- forever. That can add up to tens of thousands of dollars over time.

By contrast, Solar as a Service with Sunnova gives you the benefits of solar power without the worry of unexpected expenses derailing your budget. All of our products, including our ownership product (Easy Own), come with our Sunnova ProtectTM warranty and maintenance at no additional cost to you. We also provide 24/7 system monitoring and a performance guarantee.

So, what does all this mean to you? It means no stressing over extra costs that may crop up. Because they won’t. You make your monthly payment and we take care of the rest.
