Frequently Asked Questions

Can I buy solar from Ovanova?

How soon can I have my system installed?

This varies from location to location.  

Between 3 weeks to 6 months depending on where you live, the requirements of your local jurisdiction, and the utility company. The installation itself takes 1 to 4 days depending on the size of your system.

Ovanova understands you want your solar activated as soon as possible and we do everything in our power to make that happen.

How much will it cost to make my electricity from sunlight?

Every home and property is different, and this is one of the reasons we started our program – to make it easy and transparent. We create a free, custom solar design for you and walk through it together.

Variables that can affect cost:

  1. How much electricity do you use?
  2. Which directions does your home face?
  3. Where do you live?
  4. What type of equipment would you like to use?
  5. What kind of roof do you have?

How do you choose your installers?

Ovanova is continually developing a network of installers across the U.S.  Everyone in our network possesses the skills and licenses needed to legally, safely, and professionally install and activate your system.  

Alternatively, if you would like to recommend a contractor you trust or would like to DIY, those options are available.

What types of equipment do you offer?

Ovanova works with all equipment manufacturers so you can get what you want.

What is "Open Book Pricing"?

“Radically Transparent Pricing” was too many syllables, so we decided to call it “Open Book” instead.

In order to fully understand your options, it’s helpful to know how an installation is priced.  From the price of the panels, components, labor – and even how much we earn – we show you everything. This way, you can make the best choice for you.

When you explore transitioning to solar with us, we’ll create a free, custom design for you.

Then we’ll not only show you the price, we’ll also show you where every dime goes–including how much we earn.

When your installation is complete, we’ll show you the invoices for the equipment and give you a rebate if the actual cost ends up being less than the price we projected.

Where does the money for the donations come from?

The donations money either come from our sponsors or our marketing budget.

Who can partner with Ovanova to raise funds?

Any organization or cause who has members/supporters own a single family home or full building in one of our active service areas.

We’d love to contribute to apartment and condo owners, but due to their lack of ability to make decisions about their roofs, we are unable to do so at this time while keeping the service available for homeowners.

Anyone is welcome to attend and contribute to the solar conversation regardless of homeowner status.

Do I have to make a purchase in order to create a donation for the organization I support?

No.  

We Give First. Like the Sun.

If you register, are confirmed as the property owner, and show up on time for the workshop with your camera on and not on a mobile device, the donation will be given.

We designed the Clean Energy for a Cause events and personalized Clean Energy Design Workshops to be beneficial to all the folks who join us regardless of whether or when they choose to move forward.

Ovanova is continually developing a network of installers across the U.S.  Everyone in our network possesses the skills and licenses needed to legally, safely, and professionally install and activate your system.
