Sunnova Energy and Generac Power Systems are expanding their strategic partnership, with Sunnova now able to offer its customers Generac’s newly updated technology to its current suite of offerings, which will include energy storage units and for the first time, standby home generators, microinverters, and load managers.
The agreement will see residential energy service provide Sunnova have a single supplier for its Sunnova Adaptive Home business, while Generac’s dealer base will now gain access to Sunnova’s services.
The pair will work together to make Generac’s products available via 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 for adverse weather events and participate in grid services programmes, Sunnova said in a media release.
“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 CEO of Generac.
“Our strengthened partnership with Generac is another key step towards making the Sunnova Adaptive Home a reality,” said Sunnova CEO William Berger. Sunnova Adaptive Home integrates solar, battery storage, energy control and management technologies within a single system, according to Sunnova.
In November last year, Sunnova and home security firm Brinks Home entered into an exclusive partnership that will allow Brinks Home dealers to offer its customers Sunnova’s portfolio of products, and vice versa.
