Capizzi, MD Cosmetic Surgery Practice Goes Solar

Awesome Solar CTA. Really Amazing…

Business Profile: Dr. Capizzi, MD Cosmetic Surgery Practice has Gone Solar!

 

The Problem

In 2017, Dr. Capizzi of Capizzi, MD Cosmetic Surgery took a closer look at incorporating renewable energy at his practice. Future increases in utility costs were a concern, but could solar lock in affordable energy? With the cost of solar having come down in recent years, he moved ahead with a solar energy consultation to find out if it would be a good fit.

The Solution

The practice soon learned that their building had a suitable roof for solar and that it could provide financial and environmental returns.

Not only would the practice become more competitive by saving on monthly fixed costs, without sacrificing quality of care to clients, but going solar also enabled the practice to use tax credits and other business tax strategies to accelerate the financial benefit of going solar – a federal tax credit would essentially pay for 30% of the project cost to the customer.

Frequently Asked Questions About Something:

How exactly does going solar and a solar system itself work?
Solar energy begins with sunlight that hits the panels to produce energy that flows into your inverter, which converts the DC energy into Alternating Current (AC) electricity that can be used to power your home. This same energy is then consumed when powering your home’s light, appliances, gizmos, and gadgets. If you feel your home isn’t producing the energy that it needs, the utility will fill in the gaps. If you system produces more energy than needed, that energy will go to the grid and your utility will credit you for the unused power.
How many solar panels do I need for my home?
At Renu Energy Solutions we design our solar panel systems size based on three main factors. Roof-size/available space: When we look at the size of your roof and the space available, we gather data that tell us the maximum number of solar panels your home or site can hold and we even consider shading. We use a software “Suneye” which takes a 360 picture of your roof and we use this photo to determine if your home is a good candidate for solar. Energy Usage: When we determine energy usage we look at your past electrical bills from over the course of a year to make sure your system isn’t too big or too small. Your Budget: We take your budget seriously and most importantly, we want you to be satisfied with our services. We take your feedback on how much you want to spend so that we can size your system appropriately.
What is solar net-metering?
Net-metering is a type of utility policy that controls how your system is connected to the grid and how you are credited for the solar energy you produce.
Does Duke Energy offer net-metering?
Yes! Both Duke Energy Carolinas and Duke Energy Progress territories in NC offer net-metering when your homes goes solar. If you are interested in net-metering, no worries. Our team will guide you through the process as certain utilities have a different application procedure.
Curious about the cost of a home solar system?
When our clients ask this question, we immediately tell Tham about the federal tax credit that comes with going solar. The Federal tax credit for going solar is 26% in 2020. For example, if the total cost of you system was $22,000, when you subtract 26% you are then left with a %16,280 solar system. There is not set price for a home going solar as there are many factors that contribute to the total cost. The price of a solar home can range from $10k to $100k based on the size of your roof, energy usage, aesthetic preferences, and of course, budget.
