Solar for Builders

Solar for builders has leapt forward in the Carolinas in recent years, and solar energy systems are now popular among homeowners. Renu Energy Solutions is here to help homebuilders understand the benefit of incorporating solar into new construction, particularly by choosing the efficiency and aesthetics of SunPower panels, which deliver the greatest value.

The economics of solar for builders are excellent for residential electric customers across the Carolinas. Gone are the days when solar panels were a luxury, reserved for only the most dedicated eco-conscious consumers: The market for clean energy is mature and the technology is proven, as these recent success stories show.

Add Value For Your Client with Clean Energy

When a builder opens up the conversation about solar power with a customer, it’s an opportunity to alleviate concerns about utility bills in the home, and to envision the years of energy the panels will produce.

We understand that as a builder, some of your main concerns about getting involved with solar are all likely to be:

  • Aesthetic appearance
  • Workmanship and product quality
  • Cost
  • Adhering to a predetermined timeline

Let us show you our commitment to consistently flawless installations with solar for builders, our readiness to deliver on the construction schedule you set, and our willingness to help you and the homeowner navigate available low-interest loan programs.

The homeowner may be surprised at the thought of rolling the solar system installation purchase price into the home loan, with tax-deductible interest. This is practically always a big win for the customer, with a barely-noticeable increase in the mortgage, as Renu Energy Solutions can demonstrate. In return they’ll realize a significant reduction in utility bills, for 25-40 years or more.

Frequently Asked Questions About Solar:

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.
