Sunnova is a different kind of power company, which is reflected in its business strategy.

The company partners with the best and brightest solar experts in the areas it serves to provide customers nationwide with low-cost, worry-free solar power while supporting the local economy.

So, when you choose Sunnova, you’re not only choosing to lower your energy costs for 25 years -- you’re also making a decision that’s good for your community and the environment. And that’s a choice everybody can live with.

The Good

  • Flexible Payment Options
  • Helpful Moving Options
  • Wide State Availability

Flexible Payment Options

Sunnova offers a number of payment options for customers to choose from.

The company's EZ Own option gives homeowners the opportunity to purchase a system without any upfront costs and pay a fixed amount each month for a 25-year term, which is substantially less than most power bills. At the end of the term, the customer will own the solar power system.

Sunnova's EZ Pay PPA is another diverse financing option that only requires customers to pay for the energy produced by the system at a flat monthly price. There is also a standard lease option available, during which the customer will essentially be renting the panels from Sunnova.

Helpful Moving Options

If a customer decides to move while under contract, Sunnova offers a number of options: the customer can transfer the service agreement over to the new owner, pre-pay the remainder of the contract and transfer it to the new owner, or move the system to a new address. This is especially beneficial for homeowners who are less permanent.

Wide State Availability

Sunnova is currently available in the following 19 states: Arizona, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, Florida, Hawaii, Indiana, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Maryland, Missouri, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, Oregon, Pennsylvania, and Texas.

The company's services are also available in Guam, the Virgin Islands, Puerto Rico, and Saipan, which means many consumers have the option to go solar with Sunnova.

The Bad

  • Long Contract Terms
  • No Buyout Option for Leases

Long Contract Terms

Sunnova requires a 25-year service agreement, which is higher than the average 20-year agreement employed by most other solar companies.

Additionally, Sunnova does not offer a production guarantee for PPAs, which can be detrimental if the system isn't producing as much as it should be during the length of the contract.

No Buyout Option For Leases

Sunnova's lease options do not include a buyout option for customers, which creates a disadvantage for those who may need to move while under contract.

The Bottom Line

Sunnova is available in several states and offers a variety of financing options and moving options.

However, the company's contract terms are longer than industry average. Additionally, Sunnova does not offer a buyout option for leases.

I do not understand the bad reviews I see. It sounds like most of the customers that are complaining have to take it up with the solar company that sold them the deal, NOT Sunnova. Went through with a monthly PPA with it has saved me a ton. One of my panels went out and they were out in a day to come fix. They actually knew about the malfunction before I did. Sunnova is a great company!!

I found some things confusing at 'inspection time'. I receive from my electric co. (PSEG) a letter stating "I" had to arrange for connections; I did not expect this. A call to Trinity resolved this issue. I find issue with the number of companies involved, i.e. Sunnova, Trinity, and a few others like the installers, etc.. These companies seem to be located all over the U.S.A. I'm confused with the meaning of a Email received from Sunnova indicating, in essence, I will receive two (2) "bills" monthly; one from Sunnova (I guess) and another from the utility co. Haven't I signed up for automatic payment to Trinity/Sunnova?? However, I found talking with all persons, Sales Rep. Daygon, Office person, 'Steph', and the installers pleasing , and helpful.

So far, just a couple of weeks in, things are going pretty poorly. A third of the panels weren't working after install and, even though it was the install company that told us this, nobody crew was sent to fix things until I called. I was told by the install company that I'm still on the hook for for full payment even if the equipment isn't working. Starting to look like one of the worst decisions I've made in my fifty years on the planet... more to come.

Worst solar company, I seriously don’t believe that there is a worst company on this planet earth!! PLEASE do thorough research before going to to business with this horrifically fraudulent company!!! DO NO SIGN anything on their salesman’s tablets that’s how they trap you! Let me tell you my story! So this door to door agent comes to my door with many promises so much so that I was reluctant but still curious I signed a credit check to see if I’d qualify!! And guess what it turned out to be a 25 YEAR contract! Yes 25 year contract with an “escalator” so they call it of 2.9% which means my monthly payment will INCREASE EVERY SINGLE YEAR for the lifetime of the contract! The installation was a nightmare they ruined my yard and my roof! I have called Sunnova over and over just to get the same excuse there’s no point in asking for a supervisor because they appear to be uneducated in the product and refer the contract to rebuddle every SINGLE complaint. I have never in my life experienced such blasphemy!! They supposedly don’t put a lien one home they put a “UCC” so they call it which is basically or might as well be a lien! Don’t believe me? Look it up!! Now I can’t sale my home unless I con the homeowner into taking over the contract or buy it out because I plan to move out of state and get this, I can’t even bring the panels with me!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! This is the worst mistake I’ve EVER made in my life! Opening the door to the salesman and signing what I believe was simple a credit check!!! Why would any logical person in this world sign a 25 year contract for solar? Solar panels is an evolving technology like a cell phone! Every single year more efficient panels are created and I’m stuck with this bulky ALREADY outdated system! I’m Jesus Lord I hope this company falls apart so I can be released out of this horrendous fraudulent wack company! Please stay away or you’ll just be in position. I truly highly doubt the positive comments on here are real! It’s probably one of Sunnova employees just trying to balance out the comments but trust me im sure non of there employees would sign onto their contract! I even asked a rep and they advised me on a RECORDED line that they would never sign this contract! Can you believe this??! It’s is the worst worst worst company on the face of this planet!

HORRIBLE company. I inherited a Sunnova from the previous homeowner and it is TERRIBLY undersized and EXPENSIVE. The system does not produce enough solar energy and when they have you locked in to their 20 year contract you are TOTALLY screwed. I have called multiple times and want to know why other similar houses have bigger systems, why between my solar and energy bill combined I am paying more than other similar or even larger homes and what can be done. They always "open a case" but have NEVER once called me back. I called AGAIN today to check in and they just said, call our local partner Trinity Solar. They always make sure to remind you of the contract though and that you either buy it out or bend over. DO NOT USE THIS COMPANY UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCE. Horrific customer service and just use the contract as a way to negate that the system sucks, they don't respond and changes can never be made without additional costs. I cannot wait until these things are gone. Praying a hurricane rips them off!

My system worked at less than 100% of guaranteed production for the 1st 3 years. Not as promised by the salesman - but not terrible. My inverter stopped working in the spring. They replaced the inverter after 5 weeks with what appeared to be a used inverter. My system has produced at third of guaranteed production since July 2018. I have complained to Sunnova regularly this summer. I was most recently told that the problem was "weather and other factors." I now check my inveter every day and usually find that it is not producing. My salesman told me there was a warranty on the contract and nothing to worry about. I pay my lease faithfully (and have high electric bills). Sunnova is not honoring the warranty. I have open CASE # 01118014 with Sunnova but I'm left with frustration and disappointment. I'm not saving money or the environment if my system is not producing. I am going to be selling my home and I'm worried.

I had Sunnova install solar panels on my house about 3 years ago. If I could rate them negative stars I would. They customer support does nothing to solve issues- I called them to see if my panels were working, and they confirmed everything was running efficiently based on their side. However, It turns put my panels weren't even on! Before I had the panels installed, I'd pay my APS bill the maximum payments of $250. After installing, I pay two bills, the APS bill AND Sunnova. My APS bill is now doubled what it was ($440) . I live in the sunniest part of Arizona, you'd think that'd help save some cash! The first time I decided to cancel the solar panels were even before they had installed them, but the company sent me back the salesman and he informed me that they'd charge me a cancelation fee of $10,000. I would not recommend this company to anyone.

Difficult to maneuver all the sites and registrations to start up the system and start earning. No contact with any of the people we started with so we could understand it all easily and make it go smoothly. We felt like we had to fend for ourselves and figure it out alone.

I am giving a zero rating for customer support for Sunnova. I have been calling for a month or longer because our condo association is getting new roofs due to storm damage. I was told they would get a "quote" to determine what it will cost ME to pay for removal and reinstallation of the panels. My lease does not even mention anything about this being a cost to me. I was given a verbal quote of over $3k by phone but have yet to receive a copy of the quote. I was just recently told that I have to approve the quote before I can work with the installer partner to find out if they can even schedule to do the work in time. I have been so frustrated and stressed out by this totally non-support I would never refer even my enemies to this company. After spending over $3k for this removal and install, every amount I could save on electricity will be lost for the rest of the life of my lease and I have only lived in my home for one year.

My experience with Sunnova has been great. The representative that we worked with was great and knowledgeable. The Solar representative that initially began the process explained every step that would be taking place with the process of adding solar to our home. He explained that the interface with Sunnova would take place and be a very quick and smooth process. It certainly was. I would recommend Sunnova to others as well.

Do you really want to hear it... Lets see I put the solar system on my roof with promises that I was going to save money, save the environment yadda yadda yadda.... I was promised I was going to be under a warranty that if I wasn't producing more than I was using they would come out and add more panels with no problems. YEAH RIGHT!! Well first year my electric bill at the end of the year was over $500.00 not including the monthly fee I paid of around $100.00 for the system. I called they told me oh that's because you didn't have the system a full year and didn't produce enough during the winter months. OK so .... My second year comes and goes well now I owe over $700.00 to Edison and still paying that monthly fee to Sunnova which has now increased. I call and they say oh well lets do an audit but you have to send us 1 year of bills from pre-solar and 1 year of recent electric bills. OK so I go and pull all these electric bills and scan each one and email them all over as instructed. It takes them several weeks to get back to me and then when they do the girl has a total attitude tells me my problem is that I am using more electricity now than I did back then. Well thats great unfortunately its been a hot summer and with the local fires and my asthma I have to have it running. Anyways I ask her if we can add more panels and ensure we get are producing enough. She tells me she will have to talk to another department and get back to me. A few weeks goes by I hear nothing I call and am sent to her voicemail I leave a message and wait a few more days guess what no word. So I call customer service the guy is super nice and understanding but says I have to talk to her. UGH so I leave more messages for her and well after doing this a few more times she answers and tells me the same story I heard before but this time she tells me someone from the other department will call me back. YEAH right I still haven't heard from them and when I call not they pass me around like a hot potato and I have gotten nowhere. SO NOW I just want the crap off my roof so I can find someone that knows what they are doing to come do this. Oh did I mention we are only like four months into the new year of coverage and guess what I already owe the electric company nearly $700.00 and of course Sunnova increased my monthly payment to them. SO WHEN DOES THAT SAVINGS START????? WHEN DO I GET A REBATE OR ANYTHING???? Save yourself a lot of headache and a lot of money and GO SOMEWHERE ELSE DO NOT USE SUNNOVA!!!

I am a zealot at turning off lights, electrical anything yet still I pay Sunnova a hefty bill every month and twice a year I pay a true up that amounts to about $200.00 a month in electrical charges. This is the worst deal I've ever had, and the worst part is that I had to buy it as it came with the house. I had no option to say no.

Seven Months ago the local contractor discovered damage to the wiring caused by squirrels. The contractor opted to shut down the system for safety reasons. (Much appreciated) Since then it has been explained to me that I would still be responsible for monthly payments as the contract is a lease and only guarantees production over a three year period. At the end of that period Sunnova would refund for any shortfall in production. I guess the lease doesn't guarantee a working system. Five months later (two months ago) the local contractor removed the panels which are now stored in my garage. There the remain while we await Sunnova to come up with a solution. Upon removing the panels the contractor discovered damage which was a result of the system. So, here we are after 7 months of no service, roof damage, no proposed solution and my garage unusable since it now serves as a Sunnova warehouse. Of course, Sunnova still collects it's monthly payment. DO NOT USE THIS COMPANY!!!!!!!!

This is my third year with this company. The system I originally agreed to was not put on my roof. It was a few month later when I learned they installed a smaller system instead. The system has not produced anywhere close to what has been guaranteed. My bill has not lowered at all with my monthly payment to them and true up. I just get the run around when I call the company. I was never given a tutorial on how to use my system. All around I regret using this company...I wish I would have read reviews before deciding to agree to a 25 year lease. Buyer beware!!!

Well I appreciate the fact that you leap me informed always about what was going on concerning Solar installation.And how great it will be once it’s up and running,also along with Solarspectum you let me know when I would be up and generating power. Had a few inspection hold ups but was all worked out.

Absolutely horrible. I was basically scammed and lied to. The worst decision I have ever made. They said they could lower my bill from $180 a month. I averaged $300 last year with the monthly payment and true up. The system stopped working for the first year for about 6 months, but I still had to pay. They just continue to lie. I can't believe I have 21 more years of hell left from this company. I want to sell or rent my house in the near future and I already know that I am going to have difficulties.

As of today I do not have power. These panels were installed on June 7th and nothing has worked. Today Trinity was at my house and checked on a problem with the inverter. What they found was that all the panels have to be replaced do to a faulty installation. I would like to have this issue addressed ASAP

Outstanding all around. Full solar service installed in record time, one month from start to finish. Sunnova and Trinity kept us informed as the process moved from inception to completion. Looking forward to working with the professionals at Trinity and Sunnova as we generate electricity to support the State of Maryland green initiatives.

They take a long a long time ( setting dates after previous visits) to get things set up , actually the structural part was set up but the hookup takes a while and our yard looks like crap thanks to them. its been over 2 months maybe three we nave been waiting for them to finish the job. They show us a rating off five stars from their brochure. The people that set up the panels were very kind, but it's all a matter of tome when the inspector gets there to approve the work which is about a months wait another crew shows up a couple weeks later to install panels boxes for electrical. Were still waiting since early April it is now July.

In my opinion, Sunnova runs their business similar like a gangster mafia. Sunnova illegally put me on a Solar contract on a home that I owned. The contract was under my tenant. I was never shown a contract. I never signed any document with Sunnova. I communicated with them about Solar. I never consented to the Solar. I never paid them any payments. When I planned to sell the property I called Sunnova to see what their plans were to sell and spoke to Bianca. Bianca was extremely rude and not helpful what so ever. From that conversation a UCC recording was filed against my property under the tenants name. This filing scared 1 buyer away and the other buyer the sale was successful but the title company withheld the proceeds until they got to the bottom of Sunnova's gangster policies. Never I mean never do business with this company!!

These guys showed me digital contract. Giving me ability to buy out down the road. Contract they printed was not same as buyout removed. Tell me how I can come up with $46000 to pay for 15000 of hardware. They are crooks plain simple. Buy solar just not from them. They took 2 months to see that panels were not working. Then when i complained about not geting refund the girl laughed. She said I can't get out of contract. Go elsewhere. Other have had leans put on house.

Let me keep this short. They have the wrong panels installed on my roof. The contract clearly states Q-Cell panels and they installed Recom. I want the panels off of my roof now and according to them the only option I have it to sign a new contract. Because it is not voided on their end. Can someone please explain how a contract can be completely wrong but not void?!?!

would give zero - I need to move and thought that this would be no issue at all- as the sales rep and there website say they are transferable. My buyer is demolishing the house and does not want them - my options are to move them to my new property - but they won't do that as it a different service supplier or continue to pay for another 22 years for panels making no electricity or buy them out at an overprice. its a total SCAM. I am very upset as I chose the company as a NEW Jersey State sponsored energy efficiency day was held at my company and Sunnovva was the solar company there - so I thought they were a good company

Stay away from Sunnova and any panel pusher they send to your door! They lied & deceived my wife and I. The salesperson pressured my wife with false promises and tricked us with an over priced solar scam! Paying way more for "Producing Energy" vs. usage, plus a bill from Edison at the end of the year! Predatory solar scam...............

Never sign a contract from Sunnova. They promise to save money on your electricity and it’s not true. Besides I had to sell my home and the company put a lean in my home. The worst part is that Sunnova did not allowed me to cancel the contract even though I didn’t have any other option. They said that the only two options I had were either pass the contract to the new owner or take the panels to the new home I was buying, but neither the new owner wanted this ridiculous contract nor I needed two solar panels on my new home due to my new home already had solar panels already paid from the previous owner. Sunnova wanted to move the solar panels no matter what and wanted to charge $8,000 just to move the panels, which it’s a ridiculous amount even when I did not need them. Also the other option is to pay $19,00.00 to cancel the contract. It’s a headache to deal with this company, I have been paying two electricity bills for 9 months so far, one bill of the previous home I sold and another one of the home I bought. Besides the person who bought my home is so angry due to the Sunnova company doesn’t want to take away the panels and I have to pay for any roof damage that this panels may cause. Stay away from this company, otherwise you will have to deal with too many problems!

THE WORST! Do not talk to them if they show up at your door. Yes installation and the turn on went as expected, but after 3 months the promised numbers started changing and not in my favor. Now I'm about to go to war with this company and I should have read these reviews first. Not getting what promised and now I'm looking at selling my house in the next year and anticipating a huge problem. CLASS ACTION LAWSUIT! IM IN!

This company is horrible. They can't get their billing correct. The spend countless time having you repeat the issue. The first and second line phone attendants cannot resolve issues. Supervisors are never available when you call. It has been over 1 year and Sunnova still cannot get the billing correct. I would not have signed up with Sunnova but they bought out my original company contracts.

The worst solar company ever. In October of 2016, I signed a contract promising my solar panels would produce in excess of 10,000 KWH (kilo watt hours). They have lowered the amount produced twice without notice. So far I have had three months of power bills that were very low ($17 a month). All the rest of my bills have been from $80 to $200+ a month. I may as well continued without solar and paid $151.00 a month. Now I have a debt of $25,000 hanging over my head . STAY AWAY FROM SUNNOVA!

Not really happy with this company at the moment. I am trying to deal with this company to pay them . But because my husband is on the loan from them they will not help me out. Never mind that he has gave them authorization more than several times to talk to me. It is very frustrating. I will say that the lady that was on the phone with me when I went off was very professional. (It wasn't her fault-so I apologized). On the system. It is not producing as much as I would like. Still getting electric bills.

Worse company ever. They aren't the brightess bulbs and their representatives are morons. Me and my co-owner wanted to go solar for our house. We signed up with Momentum Solar, which is the third party company. They signed us up for Sunnova. So the day we signed up with Sunnova, we also got an email saying "Cancellation Request accepted". We called them up and they said that they couldn't tell which property is ours and they needed to see a copy of the deed. Our house is a joint house, which some people think it's a twin, some say it's a town/row home and some say it's a duplex but whatever it is, it's still it's own identity. So we were a little reluctant to just turn over person information, but momentum solar reinsured us that this was normal and we sent a copy over. The day we sent it over, we got another email saying "Welcome to Sunnova" and another email a few hours later "Cancellation Request accepted". We called Momentum again to find out why and they weren't sure, so they were going to call Sunnova, but so did we. When we called, the representatives (as brilliant as they are) said that they could tell which roof we owned. I just stopped and said "you're kidding me right?" And they said we can't do the installation because we can't tell what roof is yours. So I said "how can you not tell what roof is ours? If you look at Google earth, you can clearly see there is a fence dividing the properties, not only that, the deed says this is it's own identity regardless that it's connected to another house and finally, to help you understand what roof is our, it's color coded for people like you who can't figure it out (as the house next door has green shingles and our house has gray shingles)" she said "you will need to own the property next to you in order for us to do the installation" my co-owner asked "do you own or rent your home?" She said "rent" he then said "ok, do you rent the apartment next to you as well?" She said "no, I just rent the one I live in, I don't need to rent both apartments" he said exactly. So after weeks went by, Momentum was still trying to get them to understand. We then thought "hey, we are finally going to get somewhere because they want the "zoning agent" to speak to us"....yeah....that was a joke! Never heard from this so-called zoning agent. I don't think he even exists. So a few months past, with Momentum still trying to get them to understand. We decided 1 finally call. So it was myself, the co-owner and a rep from Momentum and we called 3 way to Sunnova. The representative was very smug about her responses but she said "No we will not put them up because we can't tell which roof is theres" the guy from Momentum said "Even if you look a google earth, you can tell the difference in roofs" she said "they would need to own the other property next to them" and he said "even though you guys done this before (installed) on a townhouse, you guys won't do it now?" She said "nope, they would need to own the property next to them. Luckily for us, we had found a good company while we were waiting. But wanted to give Momentum a chance to help us. Sadly, they couldn't get through to these thickheaded idiots. It's no wonder they are going out of business, they are a terrible company. If you start to think to go to this company, run....RUN AS FAST AS YOU CAN! If their sales person shows up at your door, slam your door on them. If they call, hang up. This company will not do you any favors and talking them is pointless. You'd do better talking to the wall then talking to these guys. Don't believe? Go ahead and read the other reviews, they will prove my point that this is the worse solar company ever!

Please train your employees to answer simple question. Like who removes and reinstall panells if roof needed replacement. It is the most stupid answer We can’t reveal. Simple answer Sunnova or roofer. It took the company two weeks to give me the answer. Poor poor customer service.
