“Sunnova partnered with ChargePoint to help streamline and accelerate growth in consumer EV adoption. EVs in the home increase annual energy demand from 50% to 100%, depending on the owners charging behavior. By bundling a solar system and an EV charger in a single purchase, Sunnova is allowing customers to properly size and install the right energy solution for all their needs,” said Michael Grasso, Executive Vice President, Chief Marketing and Growth Officer at Sunnova. “And with ChargePoint software embedded in their personal Sunnova portal, customers will benefit from car charging optimized for their Sunnova home energy ecosystem.”

As car manufacturers increase EV offerings across multiple segments, consumers have responded with increasing adoption. There are already more EVs on the road than ever before, in the first half of 2021 the EV growth rate in the U.S. was 166%1 and according to the U.S. Department of Energy, 80% of all EV charging is done at home.

“Our offerings for the Sunnova Adaptive Home are carefully developed for our customers’ needs – we select the most innovative technologies available in the market and curate them for seamless integration,” said Shankar Achanta, Senior Director of Adaptive Homes at Sunnova. “This new EV charging bundle gives homeowners the ability to power their vehicles with the clean energy produced right from their rooftops.”

“Home EV charging is a significant part of the home energy picture. The ChargePoint partnership with Sunnova will provide connected home EV charging insights that are integrated with residential solar and storage for a complete picture of residential energy consumption,” said Bill Loewenthal, Senior Vice President, Product at ChargePoint. “ChargePoint Home Flex provides an unmatched combination of power and flexibility, smart connected features, and a thoughtful, safe and reliable design. With enhanced functionality in the home and driver ecosystems, ChargePoint is delivering technology solutions to fit the needs of EV drivers now and in the future through industry leading partnerships.”
