Restroom Direct Goes Solar
Located in Mooresville, NC, Restroom Direct was founded in 2008 by Chris Berl and has taken the initiative to go solar with Renu. Restroom Direct is a master distributor of hand dryers, water coolers, drinking fountains, and other restroom and commercial fixtures. They sell their products to contractors, electrical, sanitation, division 10 and other distributors as well as a variety of businesses, including doctors’ offices, laboratories, hospitals, churches, restaurants, theaters, service stations, health clubs, schools, municipalities, government agencies, etc.
Restroom Direct had a 57.96 kW DC system installed which is estimated to produce 75,000 kWh / year.
It is also helpful to remember that when you go solar in North Carolina and South Carolina, you qualify for the Duke Rebate. Starting in 2018, the Duke Energy Carolinas and Duke Energy Progress Utility solar rebate has been available to North Carolina businesses for a solar rebate of $0.50 per Watt(ac). This program ends in 2022 and allows those who invest in solar to receive a 26% Federal tax credit for their solar investment. Thanks to this rebate, Restroom Direct is estimated to save ~$6,100 and ~$16,200 from the duke rebate.
Looking long-term with this investment, Restroom Direct is estimated to produce 1,990,000 kWh and reduce their carbon footprint by 1,550 Tons of C02.
They had 168 x Hanwha Q.Plus LG4.2 345W Modules and 4 x SolarEdge SE14400K-US Inverters installed on QuickMount PV Racking. The overall rooftop and electrical installation took 3 days to complete.
