DENVER and KAILUA, Hawaii, May 23, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Sunetric, a wholly-owned subsidiary of RGS Energy (NASDAQ:RGSE), and Sunnova Energy Corp., a leading residential solar service provider in the U.S., announced today that they have joined forces to offer comprehensive solar solutions with battery storage to residential customers in Hawaii.

“As one of the leading full service renewable energy providers in Hawaii, Sunetric is a perfect partner to introduce our new PowerStack™ service plan to the Aloha State,” said Jordan Frugé, Chief Marketing Officer at Sunnova Energy. “Through their well-established local marketing and sales channels, Sunetric will offer our advanced solar+storage system as one of the most affordable and effective solar power solutions available in Hawaii.”

Customers will benefit from no money down and low monthly lease payments for a solar+storage service plan designed to offer affordable, reliable and clean solar power day and night—while also lowering their utility bill.

PowerStack is backed by Sunnova’s industry-leading warranty that covers everything from the panels to the battery, and even the wires. The comprehensive solutions delivered by Sunetric include complete project management, permitting and installation, in addition to Sunnova’s lifetime monitoring, support and service.

The solution is supported by the customer self-supply (CSS) program mandated by the Hawaii PUC, which enables homeowners to install solar systems that do not export power to the utility grid. By including energy storage with their new solar system, customers benefit from an expedited PUC review and approval process. The CSS program was established to help the state to achieve 100% renewable energy status by 2045.

“Through our partnership with Sunnova, a leading residential solar service provider in the U.S., we can now offer Hawaii residents a very competitive and affordable solar solution that can provide around-the-clock renewable energy,” said Darren Jennings, Vice President of Sunetric. “With PowerStack, going solar is now an even more attractive option for Hawaiians residents looking to lower their energy costs.”
