Company Updates

  • This afternoon, the Sunnova team came together (digitally) for our first entirely-virtual Town Hall. After a week and a half of social distancing, we've missed coming together as a team so we turned to technology to provide updates on the current situation, to answer any questions people had, and to just come together as a team to support each other during these crazy times.

Sunnova – Why Work With Us?

What We Provide

Sunnova makes solar energy more accessible by providing customized options, so our customers can find the right service for their home at the right price. Whether they're looking to save with solar, or they already have a solar system, we offer a variety of services to meet their needs.

Sunnova uniquely provides a 25-year service commitment with every homeowner’s customized solar + storage system. Our top-of-the-line warranty covers all solar system components, eliminating out-of-pocket expenses for repairs and maintenance. Plus, our customers get a 10-year roof warranty for extra peace of mind.

How We Work

A big part of what sets us apart is the way we work. We partner with a select network of high-quality, regional installers who sell our exclusive portfolio of Sunnova services and have first-hand knowledge of the local markets we serve. By partnering with local solar experts we’re able to provide comprehensive, customer-specific solutions and offer our customers a more personalized experience. Sunnova then stands behind their system with our national network of in-house service technicians to ensure their system continues to operate to its potential.

Advancement of Energy Technology

At Sunnova, we have an unstoppable commitment to innovation. We are continually developing smarter ways to bring energy to the world. With the Sunnova Adaptive Home, we are creating new solutions that integrate the use of solar, energy storage, and energy management technologies, to offer our customers more options, better service, and greater savings.

Where is Sunnova?

Sunnova is turning homes into energy-saving powerhouses from sea to shining sea—and beyond. We work with qualified contractors in the regions we serve to provide local expertise and responsive service.

Sunnova employees power the success of our company. We work together toward one mission: changing the energy industry by providing homeowners the freedom to choose worry-free, affordable and reliable power.

We are looking for talented and motivated individuals who thrive in a fast-paced, continuous improvement environment and want to change the world of energy. We believe in excellence in customer service and strive to ensure every customer has a reliable and optimized solar system.

While the majority of our roles are in our corporate headquarters in Houston, we have home-based employees scattered throughout our service area in order to service our customers in existing and expanding markets, including a number of US states and territories.

Whether you are interested in a corporate function, customer service, sales, or maintenance of solar equipment, we may have a job for you!

    I applied through other source. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Sunnova.


    I applied via LinkedIn, got an email and phone call from the recruiter for a first interview. Went into the office to interview with the hiring manager. I received follow up calls from both the recruiter and hiring manager to finalize some things. I was sent an offer letter within a week and started work soon after.
