Mount Your Solar on the Ground

Renu Energy Solutions provides turn-key solar and energy storage installations where our employees install your solar and energy storage solutions. Our in-house rooftop and electrical teams completed these installations ensuring the highest quality and standards.

Mount Your Solar on the Ground

Mount your solar on the ground! Solar power systems have become both more efficient in recent years – producing more power relative to space used – and more affordable. The latest innovation to benefit customers in the Charlotte area doesn’t have to do with the panels at all, but rather with the mounting systems that hold panels up and attach them to the ground.

Renu Energy Solutions, a solar installer for 11 years, has started to use a new means of mounting solar installations in a yard, and its saving clients money and making for a smoother, more desirable install process. To understand how transformational this is for their business it helps to look at how the solar service company used to approach “ground mounted” solar.

Renu Energy Solutions’ Director of Operations Andrew O’Donnell describes the difference that his team found in mounting a ground mount system: “We were used to either using ballast blocks or having to bring in an earth-mover to dig, but that’s all different now. For one thing we don’t have to deal with custom steel fabrication. The earth anchors make this system a much more flexible solution, and we don’t feel like we’re wrecking the look of the grass and terrain on the property. In fact now when we’re done it looks like we were never even there, except that there’s a solar installation secured in the ground.”

Other than shallow leveling for the system’s legs and a small trench to run cable back to the building using the solar service, no digging is needed thanks to the patent-pending innovation that works just by drilling 40-inch-deep holes. Renu Energy Solutions reports significantly greater customer satisfaction with these installations, who in turn are more likely to recommend it to their friends, and points to the ease of disassembly and relocation as a selling point for these movable solar projects. To recap the benefits:

  • Save time and money
  • Adjustable legs can install on uneven terrain
  • Earth anchors provide hold-down capacity to meet code requirements
  • No need to involve geotechnical experts
  • No heavy equipment
  • No ground screws
  • No specialized skilled labor outside our usual team

Renu Energy Solutions President Jay Radcliffe beams, “For literally years, we’ve been thinking we’d like to find a system to mount solar on the ground less invasively and more easily.

Frequently Asked Questions About Solar for Your Home or Business:

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.
