Expanded solar software offerings
Panasonic and Sunnova are both partnered with Sighten, a solar software for residential designs and proposals. Sighten recently launched integrated Sunnova Financing on its platform, making it easy for installers to sell Sunnova directly in the industry’s leading design and proposal tool.
Aurora Solar, a software tool that Sunnova relies on to accurately design and quote projects, will also now be available to Panasonic Premium installers. Aurora’s validated software evaluates the shading and performance simulations for their clients’ projects.
Through Sunnova Protect, each solar system is protected for the full 25 years of service, eliminating out-of-pocket expenses associated with the system’s care and maintenance while providing energy production guarantee. The Sunnova Protect warranty is included with all Sunnova service agreements. To complement Sunnova’s warranty offering, Panasonic’s HIT and HIT+ series modules are also covered by Panasonic’s industry leading 25-year product and performance warranty.
