Partnership with Purple Heart Homes
Renu and Purple Heart Homes
Renu and Purple Heart Homes are happy to announce that we have calibrated in making renewable homes. Renu Energy Solutions is committed to pursuing opportunities to give back to the community. In 2018, we are collaborating with Purple Heart Homes on an upcoming new home construction, for which we are contributing a full-service solar energy installation for the homeowner. The solar energy system is planned at between 4 and 5 kiloWatts in order to offset a majority of electric utility bills.
The solar home will be owned by Angela Cherico, an honorably discharged disabled veteran and mother of one. Angela became interested in serving in high school and soon joined the ROTC program, getting some experience in different branches for short spans of time. She enlisted in the Marines following graduation, and was on active duty 2002-2006.
After initially being stationed in Okinawa, Japan, specializing in Air Supply and Logistics, and a period of service at MC Air Station Miramar in San Diego, she then deployed twice to Al-Asad Airbase in Iraq.
Her tours involved exposure to burn-pits and after 4 years Angela’s honorable discharge came in 2006 as a result of neck and back injuries, breathing problems and PTSD.
She and her family are now in North Carolina where they can be closer to family, and outside of work Angela’s daughter consumes her attention. She still battles pain daily and has difficulty with PTSD. Angela says, “This means the world. My daughter and I will have two of the most important things: stability and security. Receiving this opportunity is humbling and truly amazing.”
As of July 2018, the home construction is underway and Renu Energy Solutions is already involved and coordinating with the team to ensure an ideal solar installation. The project partners hope to have the home – including the rooftop solar – completed by the end of the year.
Renu Energy Solutions appreciates Angela’s service and hopes to forge deeper connections and better understand the experience, sacrifice, and resilience of our neighbors who have given so much by serving in the armed forces. Sustaining our communities is close to our mission of providing sustainable energy.
Frequently Asked Questions About Solar for Your Home:
How exactly does going solar and a solar system itself work?
How many solar panels do I need for my home?
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.

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.
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.
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!
