Going solar in North Carolina is affordable and easy
North Carolina residents can also enjoy a 26% federal tax credit. And also have access to a solar-friendly utility policy called net energy metering, which is the best and most cost-effective means of crediting you for the solar energy you send to the grid when the power you produce exceeds what you need.
These tax credits make solar systems more affordable than ever and give you the energy independence you deserve.
Traditional utilities rely on constantly changing energy markets. Sadly, that cost is passed down to you as unpredictable electrical bills. With solar energy and your very own solar panels, you can enjoy energy autonomy. That’s why you should consider a solar energy system from Renu Energy Solutions.

Frequently Asked Questions About Solar for Your Home:
How exactly does going solar and a solar system 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.

Curious about the cost of a home solar system?
When our clients ask this question, we immediately tell them about the federal tax credit that comes with going solar: it allows you to increase your tax refund, or decrease the amount of taxes you owe on your system.
The federal tax credit is currently at 26% and will remain at that number through the end of 2022, giving you plenty of time to take advantage of the savings! 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.
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!

How many opportunities for Solar does North Carolina have…
Based on Google Project Sunroof, 74% of roofs in the North Carolina area are great candidates for a solar installation. With a capacity of producing up to 911K kWh/AC per year.
Project Sunroof’s model makes the following assumptions
- Each panel is assumed to be 250W with an efficiency of 15.3%, a DC to AC derate factor of 85%, and industry-standard assumptions about other factors.
- Panels are assumed to be mounted flush with the roof, including on flat surfaces.
- Arrays are between 2kW and 1000 kW.
- Only arrays on buildings are considered, not other spaces such as parking lots or fields.
- In cases where a building is not in a county, the maximum sun is determined by the max sun received in the city.
