Sunnova inks deal with ChargePoint for combo solar + EV charging installation services
National solar installation company Sunnova has partnered with EV charging company ChargePoint to offer Sunnova customers EV charging solutions.
“Sunnova has partnered with ChargePoint to help streamline and accelerate the growth in consumer adoption of EV.
