Solar Case Study: Southern Roots Garden Center
Southern Roots Garden Center Solar Case Study
Southern Roots Garden Center – a plant nursery featuring a large indoor and greenhouse space – hoped to turn its roof into a power producing facility.
An opportunity for this local garden center
The owner found Renu Energy Solutions and consulted with their experienced staff about his potential to generate “homegrown” energy. Renu Energy then drew up a layout to turn the perfect southern exposure into a lasting investment in renewable power.
A 16.32 kW solar system was proposed to address high utility bills and lead to monthly savings.
Harnessing the sun – growing sustainably
Business owner Thomas Joyner felt this was the right step for his business, to do their part for the environment in keeping with the principles of their community-centered and ecologically friendly business and show leadership.
Southern Roots Garden Center impressed customers with its solar array, from the first day when they remained open for business while it was being installed. It will sustain much of the building’s power needs going forward and what’s more, the owner had federal incentives to increase the savings from the project. These high-performing, top-efficiency panels are also ultra durable in order to maximize power produced over time.
Frequently Asked Questions About Something:
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!
