Solar Energy Smart Home with Renu

Living in a Solar Energy Smart Home is about taking charge of your energy future. Today, your energy costs and energy sources are largely decided by utility executives and boards overseen by regulatory agencies and bureaucrats. How much do you pay for your energy? Is the energy produced with fossil fuels or renewable energy? What options do you have for maintaining power when the grid is down? How much will you pay for cleaning up your utility’s pollution or for a failed power plant project?

Three steps to controlling your energy future with a Smart Home

To gain control, the journey includes

  • Produce your own power
  • Observe and manage your consumption
  • Store your energy

Produce Your Own Power with a Smart Home

The first step – produce your own power – has never been more affordable with various tax credits and utility rebates. Controlling your energy future meaning putting an end to the status quo, where you settle for buying all your energy from the utility. For most people, solar energy will be the best alternative for producing your own power.

Observe and Manage Your Smart Home Consumption

The second step – manage your consumption – is about both monitoring your energy use and finding ways to make conscious choices or simply putting energy efficiency solutions into practice. This can be achieved with things like consumption monitoring as part of your solar system, smart thermostats as well as adding other solar based products to your home like solar attic fans and indoor solar lighting.

Store Your Own Energy

The final step to be effectively 100% in charge of your energy future would be to add energy storage. This allows you to store the solar power that you generated during the day to use at night. The energy storage also means you have power in case of power outages that impact your neighbors. The power in your battery comes from your own solar, not a noisy generator that can run out of fuel. To keep your essentials going when the grid can’t, solar and storage is the way to go.

 

 

    Frequently Asked Questions About Solar for Your Home:

    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.
