We’ve just received sonnen’s Brilliance Award

We’re proud to announce we’ve received sonnen’s Brillance Award! Today, most energy customers in the Carolinas and our southeast region have at least a passing familiarity with the potential of home energy storage, also known as a backup battery. When paired with solar, your own energy storage system with battery banks, sophisticated configuration, and reporting integration means enhanced independence and self-sufficiency when an outage strikes. Even on normal days when utility electric service is on, more customers are keen to use their solar energy all the time including at night and storage lets you do that.

When all of us at Renu Energy Solutions began exploring high-level battery storage products two years ago, we weren’t sure how popular it would be. Today, the number of projects under our belt is adding up and we’ve just learned that our partners at sonnen are honoring us among their first year’s award winners for achievements in employing the company’s battery technology.

We’re speechless at being recognized and want to acknowledge that our leadership in this realm is thanks to our clients who have pursued these systems and our installer staff who have taken on extensive education and training to ensure quality.

“sonnen is proud to work alongside innovative companies around the country who represent a diverse array of functions… Partnerships with integrators, installers and service-providers have always been a crucial part of the sonnen mission,” said Blake Richetta, sonnen Senior Vice President and Head of the U.S. Subsidiary. “We’ve come to value our key partners even more as we expand into new markets, such as Latin America, and pioneer new industry categories, including energy automation. This is an exciting time for sonnen, these partners and the renewable energy sector as a whole, and we are thrilled to recognize others who are working diligently to forward the shared mission of making clean, reliable energy accessible to everyone.”

January 31, 2017 – ROCK HILL, SC – This week in York County, South Carolina, the region’s first sonnenBatterie residential energy storage system became operational. While over 16,000 such systems have been installed worldwide, this is currently the only one in the Carolinas.

renu-sonnen-1The installation of a sonnenBatterie Home Energy Storage System was completed by the Charlotte-based company Renu Energy Solutions, which since 2010 has provided installations of solar photovoltaic electric systems and other energy-efficient devices for home and business. The energy storage system is engineered in Germany and is made in the U.S.A., and uses lithium iron phosphate battery banks to hold power produced by the customer’s solar photovoltaic array. Consumer-owned solar continues to grow rapidly in the Carolinas, and battery storage for home and business is poised to be of great help to meet energy challenges in this market. Not all grid-connected solar customers choose to add energy storage, but for some, it is an important part of an energy system that will meet their specific needs.

Bobby Womack, the customer who purchased the sonnenBatterie system and received his installation this week, says: “I feel pretty excited to have the first sonnenBatterie in the area. Everyone can take steps to take care of our environment, and I believe energy storage is the next stage in taking advantage of renewable energy sources. I hope with the combination of solar panels and energy storage, the system will lower my demands from the electric grid which should lower my energy bill and also act as backup power in case of area power outages.”

Jay Radcliffe, President and CEO of Renu Energy Solutions, says, “I’m proud our company was able to help a customer achieve his goals for clean energy storage and the ability to have solar power 24 hours a day. For the Womack family, we were able to provide the benefit of a system that will keep their solar online and producing in the event of a power outage for complete peace of mind. It puts the customer in total control, and it’s readily available now.”

sonnen’s proven and safe storage technology, which is developed and manufactured in the U.S., empowers homeowners to manage their self-produced energy and gain greater energy independence by taking control of their own energy. Our partnerships with solar and energy efficiency providers like Renu Energy Solutions are key to providing integrated solar and storage products to new markets like South Carolina,” said Blake Richetta, VP of North American Sales for sonnen.

The sonnenBatterie home energy storage system is under the manufacturer’s warranty for 10 years or 10,000 cycles. Renu Energy Solutions offers no-cost home visits by experienced energy professionals to address customers’ energy storage needs and answer questions. Consulting appointments are available now.
