Phillips Collection in High Point, NC

Phillips Collection in High Point solar project

Phillips Collection, a furniture wholesaler, stands out as a purveyor of highest quality, most distinctive wood and stone furnishings and decor. In 2018, the company began the process of consulting with an experienced local solar installer to incorporate clean energy. Future increases in utility costs were a concern: Could solar lock in affordable energy?

The company specializes in producing pieces that embrace natural materials’ irregular organic shapes. From the roots of felled mango and acacia trees, to reclaimed rosewood and teak, Phillips Collection obtains sustainable materials to transform into prized conversation pieces.

A healthy environment is integral to Phillips Collection’s business, and the company is focused on living out values that will contribute to the clean air and water that forests and tree plantations – and our communities – need. By going solar, Phillips Collection is investing cost-effectively in a renewable resource while addressing their own bottom line, and encourages other businesses to learn if solar presents a win-win opportunity for them.

Since the owner had last considered solar, the cost had decreased significantly, and Phillips Collection started learning how solar energy could be a good fit.

The Solution

The company was pleased to discover that their building had a suitable roof for solar and that it could provide financial and environmental returns.

In an uncertain energy landscape, the company would become more competitive by saving on monthly fixed costs, with almost no impact on running the business smoothly. Going solar also enabled the firm 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.

The Benefits of Going Solar for Phillips Collection

Phillips Collection is demonstrating environment consciousness through solar. The 29.2 kiloWatt planned solar project is estimated to produce over 63,000 kiloWatt hours of solar power in its first year, slashing the facility’s $5,000 average monthly energy cost to under $100. Just as the signature wood and stone furnishings from Phillips Collection are designed to stand out in a room and show style and taste, the company’s commitment to solar elevates their profile and demonstrates environmental responsibility.

Frequently Asked Questions About Commercial Solar Energy Systems:

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.

Home Solar System

The amount of electricity that a solar energy system will produce will depend on a number of factors, including the location of the home, system design, and much more. Ideally, a home with an unobstructed south-facing view will produce more than enough energy.



Energy Storage

Installing battery backup along with your solar energy system for home or business is a smart move and can increase the value of your clean energy investment as well as peace of mind when a grid outage occur.




EV Chargers

Electric cars – with no gas engine at all – now work for most budgets and lifestyles. With more and more models to choose from, drivers are choosing electric vehicles (or EVs) than ever before!
