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.
