CASE STUDY: Piedmont Cardiovascular
SAVED IN THE
As local Greensboro medical practice expands into its new location, owner Jay Ganji has made the decision to include solar in construction plans! Piedmont Cardiovascular is a growing provider of care in their area, whose goal is to effectively treat patients to the highest standards achievable with “respect, empathy, and professionalism”.
While reconstructing Piedmont Cardiovascular’s new building, Jay Ganji had 2 important goals, making his business “green” and achieving “net zero” energy expenses. But what was going to be the route to take in order to achieve these? After realizing that solar would likely be the best option, he got into contact with representatives from Renu energy solutions and began discussions on this possible undertaking.
The RENU Solution
While meeting with the representatives, both parties were able to come to an understanding of what the system would have to look like to fit the practices expectations. After learning about the installation details and the smooth process, they officially decided to move forward with the project.
In order to significantly offset the expected utility bills, the roof was assessed and the recommendation of a 30.015 kW solar system was made. This deal became even more attractive to the practice because federal incentives including a tax credit would also be able to help the project generate savings right away.
In the first full year the system will produce around 39,900 kWh. The practice is estimated to save around over 62,000 pounds of carbon dioxide emissions.
