Sunnova Energy International is launching a product to bundle financing for roof replacements with a Sunnova solar or solar + battery storage system under a single loan or finance agreement. The new product will allow customers to work with a single Sunnova dealer who will coordinate both the installation of a new roof and the installation of the solar, or solar plus battery storage system, ensuring a seamless and hassle-free customer service experience.
This product offering will enable homeowners to install a new, durable roof together with a state-of-the-art home solar system, helping to defer future roofing and solar removal/reinstall expenses. In addition, the finance agreement provides homeowners with additional peace of mind, as their new roof will be constructed with high quality materials and covered by both a 25-year manufacturer’s and 10-year workmanship warranties. In addition, Sunnova solar systems are covered by the Sunnova Protect 25-year service guarantee.

“As we continue to see rising demand for residential solar, we often find potential customers who want to go solar, but the age or condition of their roof prohibits us from being able to install solar without the replacement of their roof. This unique offering is focused squarely on addressing this issue—enabling more homeowners to choose a clean and affordable energy system with the convenience of a bundled roof and solar service from a trusted provider,” said William J. (John) Berger, Chief Executive Officer of Sunnova Energy International. “This product will help address a real gap in the marketplace and will further increase our industry-leading growth rate.”
“Launching this product provides another way for our dealers to offer a holistic energy experience for our customers,” said John Santo Salvo, Executive Vice President, Channel Operations and Chief Procurement Officer at Sunnova. “This is another link in our value chain that enables our dealers to source solar, storage, service and now roofing from a single, national service provider.”
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.
