Wai’s Solar Story

Renu Energy Solutions provides turn-key solar and energy storage installations where our employees install your solar and energy storage solutions. Our in-house rooftop and electrical teams completed these installations ensuring the highest quality and standards.

Built around 2014, Wai’s house combines contemporary touches with traditional Carolina style. Located near Carowinds, the neighborhood is convenient to both uptown Charlotte and the engineering and tech jobs of upstate South Carolina.

Wai is thrilled to be using solar energy. He’s gotten very familiar with the program that his utility company (Duke Energy) offers whereby any day when his solar energy system is producing more power than he needs, the excess gets sent onto the grid.

Wai’s happy he gets credit on his electricity billing account for all that power at full retail value, because that’s accelerating his solar savings. Under this program, with a solar energy system 6.3 kilowatts in size Wai expects to have nearly 100% of his annual energy offset with solar.

With federal and utility incentives in place, great products available, and helpful solar professionals ready to assist you, why not do the same?

Frequently Asked Questions About Solar for Your Home:

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.
