Russ: This is PKF Texas Entrepreneur’s Playbook, I’m Russ Capper, this week’s guest host, and I’m coming to you from the Gulf Coast Regional Family Forum. And I’m with John Berger, Co-founder and CEO of Sunnova Energy Corporation; John welcome to the Playbook.
John: Thank you Russ, nice to be here.
Russ: You bet. Tell us about Sunnova.
John: Sunnova Energy is a residential solar and storage service company. We operate from near Japan and Guam, Saipan all the way through California, Texas to Puerto Rico and all the way up far north as Massachusetts. What we do through a network of locally owned businesses, dealers and contractors is they’ll go out and source customers on our behalf and sign them up to our service and then install our equipment per our specifications on the customers’ homes, and then we provide for those customers for 25+ years cheaper power, cleaner power obviously with solar onsite, and increasingly – and just recently – a better service with storage, with batteries. Onsite they’re working with the solar system and then have more complex IT systems and such so in effect we’re creating wireless power.
