The notes are backed by a diverse 6,435 solar rooftop systems distributed across 19 states and territories, the company informed. “This securitization, priced at a 1.82% blended coupon, represents Sunnova’s highest-rated, lowest cost of capital issuance to-date,” said Executive Vice President, and CFO of Sunnova, Robert Lane. “It is the second transaction structured to align asset debt service with asset cash flows, increase free cash flow to Sunnova, and accelerate the issuance of a bullet-maturity green bond.”
