Sunnova building Adaptive Home vision with Generac’s full product suite


Sunnova Energy International and Generac Power Systems are expanding their strategic partnership in a big way. Sunnova will add Generac’s newly updated technology to its current offerings, which will include energy storage units and for the first time, standby home generators, microinverters, and load managers. The big reason this matters is Sunnova now has a single equipment provider to built out their energy independent Sunnova Adaptive Home concept.

“To power energy independence, we will continue to prioritize resiliency and reliability for our customers so that they can remain in control of their energy needs,” said William J. (John) Berger, founder and Chief Executive Officer of Sunnova. “Our strengthened partnership with Generac is another key step towards making the Sunnova Adaptive Home a reality. Together, we have the people, tools, and expertise to power homes when the local grid or utility policies fail us, and allow homeowners to live life uninterrupted.”

Sunnova and Generac will work together to make this new hardware technology available to homeowners through Sunnova’s dealer network and by integrating both companies’ software platforms. This will allow Sunnova to see the performance of the systems, manage the installed technology, help predict and prevent potential issues, prepare customers for inclement weather events, and participate in grid services programs across the U.S. on the customers’ behalf, when monitoring is included and customer permission is granted.

The companies will continue to leverage each other’s extensive dealer and installer networks, and, with this new offer, Generac’s dealer base will now gain access to Sunnova’s services. Sunnova’s financing will now be available to the home standby generator market and Generac certified dealers, across all 50 states and Puerto Rico.

“Generac and Sunnova share an aligned vision of where the industry must go, and we’re excited to expand our strategic partnership to help bring that future vision to life,” said Aaron Jagdfeld, President and Chief Executive Officer of Generac. “Generac is developing and launching innovative clean energy products that not only increase and optimize the amount of clean energy produced, stored and utilized by homeowners, but help to maximize customer savings. Collectively, these products deliver a true whole-home customer experience, something that has been lacking until now. We look forward to partnering with Sunnova to deliver these products to customers and provide increased power resiliency to more homeowners.”

With The Sunnova Adaptive Home, Sunnova is providing a way to integrate solar, battery storage, energy control and management technologies to homeowners. The Sunnova Adaptive Home is not only able to produce and store energy, it also “adapts” by optimizing energy sources and consumption predictively, in real time.
