Sunnova Energy International formed a strategic partnership with Generac Power Systems, a leading global designer and manufacturer of energy technology solutions and other power products. In addition to leveraging both companies’ extensive dealer and installer networks, the partnership will make Sunnova the exclusive Lease and Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) provider for the PWRcell energy storage system sold by contractors using Generac’s PowerPlay design and quoting platform in the U.S. and its territories.
Sunnova and Generac will offer Generac’s PWRcell system with Sunnova’s Lease, PPA, Loan and other financing agreement offerings through Sunnova’s approved vendor list.
Sunnova is the only Generac partner to bring a 25-year service agreement to the PWRcell system, which is the longest term for a Generac partner. The PWRcell system will provide homeowners greater flexibility to install and size their storage capacity by offering customers the option of a modular battery system so that they can customize their solar storage needs.

Have you checked out our YouTube page?
We have a ton video interviews and additional content on our YouTube page. Recently we debuted Power Forward! -- a collaboration with BayWa r.e. to discuss higher level industry topics as well as best practices / trends for running a solar business today.
Our longer running side project is The Pitch -- in which we have awkward discussions with solar manufacturers and suppliers about their new technology and ideas so that you don't have to. We've discusses everything from residential rail-less deck attaching and home solar financing to large-scale energy storage value stacking and utility-driven new home solar + storage microgrids.
We also post our Project of the Year announcements there! Interviews with this year's winners will be up starting the week of Nov. 8. Head there and subscribe today to stay on top of all this extra stuff.
