  • "Great Overall Experience!!"

    Reviewed Oct 18, 2020

    We interviewed several installers and went with RENU because they were comparably priced and easily answered my wife's zillion questions. Jeremy Pitts was absolutely fantastic...willing talking through decision factors, and extremely quick turnaround on email.

    Another important deciding factor for us was the simple fact that RENU does a site survey BEFORE the installers show up instead of part of the install as many of the other installers we spoke to, so the install team knew exactly what they were looking for when the got here.

    Speaking of the install team....they were incredible. They were fast, efficient and polite. Will even took the time to walk our 8 year old through how the process worked and answer his questions...we were truly touched by that.

    The only slightly frustrating part was communication once the contract was signed. A different person handled each piece of the process, so it was a bit clunky to get the 'right' person when questions arose. However, everyone we talked with (Rachel, Thomas, Holly, Evan and Nadia) was dedicated to getting our project to the finish line as quickly as possible.

    Overall, our system has performed,as, if not better than expected . The panels look fantastic and we are seeing a decrease in our monthly power bill. Thanks RENU!

    Renu is a fantastic company to work with. We researched pretty extensively before picking Renu, and they were definitely the best choice. We factored in cost, quality of materials, quality of workmanship, and customer service. They seemed to rise to the top on every metric. We signed with Renu and had our install just a few weeks later. The install itself was incredibly easy. The team was prompt and courteous and really professional - they were done by lunchtime for a 9kw system. I highly recommend Renu - they've been fantastic in their follow-up after the install as well. Cheers!

    "Looking forward for better results"

    Reviewed Sep 17, 2020

    The history to this point has been terrible and all I can do is look forward to better days and results ahead. Initial discussions and communications were good. However, they kept guiding me to a 10 kW system until I agreed, and then at their design review, had to change back to the originally requested 13.4 kW solar array because the calculations for a smaller system showed that the system would not charge the three (3) Tesla Powerwalls. They offered to downgrade to two (2) Tesla Powerwalls, but the calculations showed that two Powerwalls would not provide total backup power in a power failure. After final, final agreement, on the size of the system and the final design was approved, the install crew showed up and failed to install the system as designed. This was after a site visit and the site visit technician laid-out the system and marked the site in accordance with the approved design. Workmanship was also substandard as the install crew failed to follow the platform and solar panel manufacturers' installation and care instructions potentially damaging the panels. However, we won't know for a while because it took 60 days after the original attempt to install for Renu to agree to reinstall the platforms as close as possible to the approved design layout; re-assemble the platforms in accordance with the platform manufacturer's instructions; and test and re-install (or replace if needed) the solar panels in accordance with the solar panel manufacturer's use, care, and installation instructions. It's been 30 days since they agreed to re-do the work and all I have to date is the information of a "potential" show date within the next two weeks. This solar array history is in addition to no movement to install the Tesla Powerwalls to date with only a note saying that delivery had been delayed. A solar panel and Tesla Powerwall project that should have been completed at the end of June is basically sitting at a negative fifty percent (- 50%) complete at the end of September. Meanwhile Renu has collected thousands of dollars and I'm still sitting here waiting with not one kW of power being generated, stored, or used. Again, I can only hope for better days ahead. I am willing to update this review with "the rest of the story" when the final chapter can be written.

    "Renu installed 26 panels 5 months ago"

    Reviewed Aug 15, 2020

    I recommend Renu. We had interviewed 3 different solar companies who had come door-to-door during the past 2 years and considered taking the leap to solar but wanted to take a couple of years to see how the trend played out to better make a long-term decision about our power choices. Through Energysage, which i signed up for in 2019, i was able to get a pretty good view on the trends for a while. I believe that i discovered Renu through Energysage but can't quite remember if it was independent search or not - nonetheless, inspired by the site to make the move. We wanted to go as local as possible for many reasons, mostly the long-term - meaning that we have a better chance of holding our solar company accountable for service over the long-haul if they are in an office within a couple of hours of our home. So, we called and made an appointment for a consultation which was very informative (with Nick Zink) and was in our own home. Nick proved to us his knowledge and long-term interest in solar energy so we took the leap. Every step of the way was handled very professionally. We were moved through the process with absolute transparency on the part of Renu and constant updates and availability of our project's manager, (Rachel Gunter), and our customer advocate (Holly Bearden). We felt comfortable every minute of the project because they answered every concern we had over the 3 months it took to get up and rolling (during the beginning of Covid crisis). Renu knows what they are doing and very much proved that to us. Remember, we were about to spend a lot of money on a very long-range plan so we wanted to feel 'heard' every step of the way. And we did. So, long story short, it was a great experience and we have been producing over 1000 kw hours of energy every month, which covers our use and is building up credit with Duke energy for the less sunny months and i know that because we have an app that i check every once in a while that tells me way more than i need to know about our system. I was asked to do this review by EnergSage and i am happy to do it because i can stand behind Renu Energy at this point 100% because of the experience we have had personally.

    Renu did a good job overall. The installation team and process was pleasant. Unfortunately, Renu missed its yearly estimate of solar power generation in my case. Also, I received no money from the NC solar rebate program after an extensive application process which was very disappointing. I guess if expectations matched reality then I could give 5 stars vs 4. Compared with the competition, believe Renu has a significant edge due to its mostly competent staff and experience in the local area.

  • "So Far - So GREAT!!!!"

    Reviewed Jun 20, 2020

    We have recently given in to solar energy - mainly because of the complete explanation and helpful words of our salesman, Jeremy Pitts - and we are SO glad we did!!! Mr. Pitts' explained everything to us in a way "older" people could understand - and was so patient in doing so! NEVER did we feel pressure in any way. We had a unique problem with our roof and did not want to put the panels there, but also needed more space for tractor and yard equiptment. Mr. Pitts came up with, and handled the building of a post and frame - HUGE - 3 stall building ALL of the panels fit perfect! It looks GREAT - we even got a tin roof!!! When the work actually started we started having contact with the girls in the office, the guys who attached the panels and ran the cable and the guys that connected the cables and everyone that we have talked to have been punctual (always calling on there way in) courteous, professional and helpful. All I can say is that if you have EVER thought about Solar - call Renu Energy Solutions and ask for Mr. Pitts!

    A full service solar company, both home and commercial. They seamlessly installed a roof top system 10 years ago, with two upgrades/expansions since. From the site analysis to finish, I found the advisors and technicians to be remarkably well-trained, experienced, efficient and professional. I am extremely satisfied with the cutting-edge technology, the value, and the quality of the system.
    My only advisory relates to corporate hierarchy and communication, which at times affected the progress in completion of my installation. For some reason, ancillary issues weren't handled/corrected in a timely manner.

    "Renu Energy Solutions was excellent; Duke Energy not so much"

    Reviewed May 18, 2020

    The performance of Renu Energy Solutions personnel was superior throughout the implementation of our 10.5kW solar project, including design, installation, permitting, and Duke Solar Rebate application and submission; a Renu crew even came out on the Saturday before Christmas to finalize the physical installation. Their post-installation support has been excellent, both with technical assistance and troubleshooting, quite unlike my general experience with other contractors. The only sour notes in the entire 3-month-long process centered on issues with Duke Energy's solar program. The incorrect interpretation of our project application by inexperienced Duke personnel unnecessarily delayed permitting and array activation for weeks. As aggravating as this was, it was far eclipsed by the Duke Energy Solar Program’s poor management of the entire 2019 rebate process, from application submission, evaluation, rebate award notification, and rebate check delivery. None of this was done well, particularly Duke's lack of communication during the process. While Renu Energy Solutions personnel submitted our application in a timely manner, our rebate application and that of many other Renu customers was incorrectly waitlisted. Rectifying Duke Energy’s many errors only succeeded weeks later due to the concerted effort of Renu Energy Solutions personnel, corroborated by their thorough documentation of the online rebate application submittal process. And though we hoped our trouble with Duke would end after we received notice from Duke that our rebate had been approved, the promised 4-week max check delivery took over 6 weeks. Without Renu's perseverance, our out-of-pocket cost and our frustration level with Duke Energy for the project could have been much higher. So kudos to Renu Energy Solutions and thumbs down to the Duke solar energy program. Hopefully, Duke will rectify its solar rebate program problems on its own or with the insistence of the North Carolina Utilities Commission.

    P.S. The local Duke Energy personnel were without exception courteous and professional.

    Reviewed May 15, 2020

    While our "solar" power is not yet activated, I have no doubt that it will be as good as or better than they have advertised. The people skills at Renu are second to none. My initial contact was with Jeremy Pitts, SC Sales Manager, who answered questions I didn’t know I had. Important questions. Then the infectious, enthusiasm of Holly Bearden, Customer Advocate immediately followed up with a welcome phone call. Can you imagine? Already, two person to person contacts, not just emails or texts. I was already impressed. Enter the delightful attitude of Rachel Gunter, Solar Project Coordinator and my main contact in their office. Joining the Solar generation is a big deal and coordinating efforts with an electric company can get confusing. Rachel made it work. No bother. No angst. Just “here’s what we’re going to do next”. It's a pleasure to see her name pop up on my many daily emails. Today the installation team came. We now have space age panels on our roof. Having lots of much needed work done on our house recently, we have gotten to see good teams of workers as well as other teams of workers. This crew, led by Daniel was extraordinary. They all knew what to do, when and how to do it. A model of efficiency and professionalism. They even spoke to me. Honestly, I wasn’t sure I wanted to take on this project. I’m “old school”. I did my research, and was approached by at least 6 other companies in the last 4 months. One said I didn’t use enough electricity to make it worth their time. When I suggested I wasn’t sure I was ready for a commitment like this, one salesman actually told me “I was making a wise decision not to sign with them”. Renu is different. They may specialize in the solar energy solutions business, but their employees are in the people business. Refreshing! For an old school couple.

    Furthermore, North Carolina has a very competitive utility solar rebate program, and Renu understands how to push through the red tape.

    Reviewed Apr 18, 2020

    I had a ground mount done that was $65,000. Signed my contract in November of 2019 and was told I would up and running no later than January. It's now going into May 2020 and my power bill is just now showing a diffence. Was told I might only have one payment to the loan company prior to it pushing out power.I had to make 4 payments to the loan company and my full power bill. Had to keep calling the company to get them to even come do the job that I was already having to pay the loan company for. When the workers came out to do the job that was suppose to be two days it took them a week. The workers only came out to work a few hours out the day and was given the excuse that they were out of NC and I live in SC. I even took days off of work to be home due to they said I would need to be there. the first two days the crews did not show up because it was suppose to rain in NC but was not and did not rain in my area of SC. I had to keep resending information several times like my insurance stuff because the information was not being given to each department. Due to having a ground mount done on my property a trenching crew had to trench a 165ft line across my yard and dug under my driveway. The trench was left completely open for two days being almost 3ft deep and I had to put the dirt myself back under my driveway so I could drive over it. After everything was set up and the crews left. I still have a 1ft deep trench across my yard that they put in a work order for. 2 months later no one has showed up to cover it up and now the grass has grown up in the dirt to cover up the trench. I've had to keep my kids away from the trench area so they don't step in it and get hurt. This is where I live and my wife also does her photography business here. She has to keep costumers away from that area so they don't get hurt in the trench that was left and she is unable to use that part of our property during the prime season. Also the electrical crew when they put the boxes on the side of my house that was building 1901 that is a restored farm house they left a drill hole from a screw in the side of my house. I've reached out to the company and said they would take care of it and even called one day and said the crew was on the way to finish covering the trench. The crew never showed up and when I called to let them know the crew didn't show up. They didn't know why. I paid this company $65,000 to do a job and to me was not completed. I will now have to fill in the trench myself so I don't take the potential of one of my kids being hurt or one of my wife's clients being injuries and them suing us.

    If I could go back knowing what I know now I would not have done this or at least not went with this company. My worry's are now if I start having issues with the system, how hard is it going to be to have someone come out and fix it.

    The person I went through for the system was very helpful with the begining of this process and was very knowledgeable about the systems. I do believe he set me up with a good system, it was just the process after him is where it went South.

We really liked Nick Zink who introduced us to what to expect and the timeline. His enthusiasm for mitigating climate change and solar energy was infectious. The cost while not the cheapest was reasonable.

    On the day of install a double crew was sent out at 8am and the entire project was installed by 4pm! We so enjoyed the diverse, talented young people emploiyed by Renu.

    We had the project done in July 2019 but waited until October to have it activated so as to be more sure if obtaining the Duke Energy rebate for 2020. That is when we ran into some road blocks mostly to do with Duke Energy dragging their feet in changing our meter. We worked with Christina McClain at Renu who was very attentive to our plight. Together we managed to work with Duke and we went active in early December. Since then all has been well.

The installation of the panels was done in a timely manner, however, Duke took a long time installing the meter, but it was not Renus fault for this, as that process was out of their hands. The quality of the product and their outstanding customer service by Bill Winkler would be two of their best qualities as a company.

    This is my only solar install so I can only base the review comparing to other industries. Overall I would do business with them again and suggest using Renu to friends and family.

    1. I feel like turnover must be pretty high at Renu. Everyone I interacted with at the office changed by the time project was completed.
    2. I was told before signing that they don’t use contractors. The electrician ending up being a contractor.
    3. I had to correct them several times in relation to system parts. Specifically the inverter was wrong on several items and I had to correct it. Also the fuses were wrong in the permit and had to be corrected. I believe an outside company does permits for most solar installers.

  • "Great value, decent service"

    Reviewed Feb 17, 2020

    Short version:
    Great initial experience with great prices, but a general lack of proactive communication plagued the process. Renu seems to be a little short staffed. Some major problems (roof leak and Duke rebate problems) were able to be worked out satisfactorily. Early production results seem promising.

    Long version:
    Sales team was great, and willing to work with me on pricing. I had quotes from five companies, and I chose Renu for price, positive reviews, length of experience, panel quality, and production guarantee. Mark has been great about being involved throughout the process and clearly communicating.

    My biggest scare was the Duke rebate. At the time I was signing the contract, I was assured that there was virtually a 100% chance I would receive it, and that they would take care of submitting the necessary papers the day it opened in a timely manner. Due to technical issues (not Renu’s fault), I almost missed the rebate, but due to Renu’s diligence in bookkeeping, I was able to receive it. While I am happy with the end result, and Renu did do the proper things to ensure that we got the rebate, the process could have been less stressful had Renu been more proactive about communicating what was going on. I also want to note that Reun submitted my application at about 9:19 AM, with a cutoff for receiving the rebate (this year) ended up being at about 9:20 AM. Bottom line, I would be wary of counting on the rebate in making your purchasing decision.

    My second biggest problem that I had was a roof leak caused by solar panel installation. This is something that according to pretty much any source online should be very, very rare, as long as the installers are good and your roof is in good condition (ours is brand new and hadn’t had any problems). Now, to give Renu credit, they sent someone out quickly to take a look, and didn’t try to pretend that they didn’t cause the problem, and got it fixed within the week. Getting it fixed in that time frame did require me to push back on their original plans, which were to fix it about a week later, after some major rain storms were set to pass through. We were lucky that the water dripped onto a place where it was visible to us, otherwise we could have had major water damage done before noticing that there was a problem.

    A recurring problem after signing until completion was communication. I was given only one day of notice before installation, and wasn’t told that it would be an all day affair. A bigger deal was working with Evan to get the inspection done. Evan was a nice guy, and I suspect at least part of the problem might be that he is too busy, but he required constant prodding to let us know what was going on, and often did not show up when he told us he would. The first time the inspector came by, he was supposed to stop by a couple hours earlier to drop off needed paperwork, but he never showed up, which meant we failed the inspection. Furthermore, he never called to explain what happened, meaning that a few days later I had to call to find out what was going on. The cycle of needing me to call to find out needed information or needing him to push him to reschedule, etc., occured several times. Again, nice guy who is probably just too busy, but definitely not too reliable or good at letting you know what was going on.

    Since my panels have been on (only a couple of weeks), I have seen production numbers that are about what I expected, and should be higher than the guarantee by a comfortable margin. Right off the bat, one of my optimizers didn’t work. Renu automatically generated a work ticket for it, which is nice. After a couple weeks of not hearing from Renu, I reached out to find out when they would be coming. Joel let me know that since one panel not working is a small problem, it might take a couple more weeks to even get a date scheduled for when they will come. Once again, it seems as though Renu might be a little short staffed.

    Reviewed Feb 04, 2020

    My experience with Renu Energy Solutions was excellent! From Sales (Bill Winker), to project management (Hannah Elliott and team), to install (Zach Mercer, Josh Pennington and teams), to billing (Tristan Herbert and Vidya Ravindran), and followup technical questions (Joel Robinson and team), everyone was extremely professional and accommodating. Out of three Solar venders, Renu gave me the best price and worked with me to convince my solar virgin HOA that solar power can be smart, responsible and beautiful (non-compromising to the home or community). Due to extra effort put in for aesthetics, the final outcome exceeded everyone’s expectations to the point most visitors don’t even realize we have solar panels. All black panels with dark shingles, and solar array skirts with squirrel guards drastically helped blend the solar panels with the architecture of the home. Inside, the electrical team (Daniel Blake, Dillon Sellie, Even Robinson and Michael Westhafer) spared no expense or time to do a clean, modern, zero-compromise install. It’s by far the nicest looking solar panel install I’ve seen and an excellent example of how it should be.

    Installation was done quite well - I have to complement the crews working on it.

    At first I was skeptical about getting solar panels. I thought it would be too much trouble and not worth the time. I was wrong!! After talking with Nick Zink we had our panels installed and 6 months later we have seen amazing savings on our power bill. I also cannot say how amazing Nick has been. He walked us through and ensured every concern or worry was resolved before the install and personally walked through the process and checked to ensure everything was done on time. The installation went seamlessly and ahead of time, they cleaned thoroughly afterwards, and the respect they showed was incredible. If you get solar panels ask for Nick Zink. I trust no one else.

    I am sorry to say that so far Renu has not lived up to expectations that they raised! I was told that we would be producing power within 4 weeks of agreeing to start the process. Well, the installation was complete and the county inspector checked it on October 4th and we finally started producing power on December 2nd! That is at least 10 weeks from start to finish when they promised 4! It would not have been touched if I had not called repeatedly and then finally called Duke on two occasions to followup on getting my "special" meter. Neither Renu nor Duke were willing to take responsibility of the lost production. I blame Renu since they should have been on top of this to be sure it was completed.

    Now it is producing only about 15 KW on the best days when we were expecting somewhere around 25 KW. Not sure if that is due to angle of the sun or whether something is wrong, but no one is willing to take responsibility and come check it out.

    Renu was very helpful throughout the entire process of having a solar system designed, installed, and financed. They were by far the best quote that I received as well.

    Our goal was a "net zero" system and so far it looks like they nailed it.We had 38 panels installed on our house that went live in June and I have not had a power bill since. Duke Energy still charges ~$15 /mo for connection fees but actual power consumption has been zero and we are banking credits towards the leaner months when power generation may be less than consumption.

    I haven’t seen or even heard of any design-build project that didn’t encounter problems – our project was not an exception. Problem # 1. The delivery of the solar panels was delayed three weeks. Now what you should expect and deserve is to have a firm working for you that responds to each problem in a professional manner and works diligently to successfully resolve every issue during the course of the project. This is the true measure of accountability. Renu Energy Solutions proved themselves to be accountable. Christina at Renu tracked the solar panel delivery daily and scheduled the installation crews on the first day that the panels were available in their warehouse. The panels were installed in a single day. And on the second day all of the electrical wiring, penetrations, connections and disconnects were completed. The last activity was the installation of a second home ground rod as required by current building code. Problem # 2. Normally the rod is installed by driving a half-inch diameter copper rod 8 ft. into the ground, usually near the electric meter location. Unfortunately, our home has only 1 ft. of topsoil over bedrock. The solution was to drill through the bedrock. Unfortunately, the drill bit needed was an industrial grade, extra long drill bit which is very expensive and has a long lead time to fabricate and deliver. Renu worked to locate a drill bit and when none could be found available, they purchased one at their own expense to minimize the completion delay – never asking for any additional money.

    Everything went really smoothly. I got a proposal from Renu, then I found Energy Sage and used them to compare. Energy Sage is a great resource. I got multiple quotes and offers. I went with Renu because they were local, had many installations in the area and had a good price.
    Installation, both mechanical and electrical , was done by Renu, no sub contractors. It was quick and efficient. They took care of all the forms and permits and notified the power company when it was ready for turn on. Two days later I'm up and running. Two days before rebate applications are being accepted, I got an email from Renu with the form to sign and they filed it.

    Renu has done everything they said they would do and did it professionally. I am very satisfied thus far. Now, if Mother nature will cooperate with some non-rainy days, I can generate some electricity. The few clear days so far have indicated that the system will perform as advertised.

    My installation was as proposed and was professionally done. Production seems to be in line with what was promised. Actual results are difficult to judge because monitoring system is totally bogus. Power company meter indicates that my night time use is almost double that indicated on the monitor, likewise the monitors listing for daily usage is only half to two-thirds that of my last 3 years. I am currently in discussion with RENU to correct the monitoring system. Don't know if I am truly being put off or if they are just slow to respond. Will update later.

    A RENU electrician came out ( on a Sunday) and relocated a couple of sensors. After a software update to account for new sensor location, monitored numbers appear to be accurate.

    It's been about two months since monitor installation was tweaked. Comparing monitor numbers with those of electric company meter readings and known feed to grid, the monitor numbers are very accurate. I would estimate single digit error possibly 1% or less.
