Tesla Solar Roof ramp was hinted at by Elon Musk earlier. Though it remains unclear, the installation of solar tiles is expanding at a rapid pace in the US. Renu Energy Solutions is a local solar installer, that announced a partnership with Tesla. They are installing Tesla solar tiles in Carolina.
Tesla’s Solar Roof tiles are quite compelling as they are aesthetically pleasing and made with tempered glass, making them several times stronger than standard roofing tiles. They’re also engineered for all-weather durability. So far, Renu is among a handful of qualified Tesla Solar Roof installers in South Carolina, and it is also the first certified Tesla Solar Roof installer in North Carolina.
As noted in a press release, the Renu team is now actively marketing the Solar Roof to new residential clients as well as those who may be looking to replace their roofs. Prior to its announcement today, Renu has completed a number of initial local home installations of the innovative solar product.
The Tesla Solar Roof effectively expands Renu’s lineup of renewable products being offered to consumers in the Carolinas. The installer also offers conventional solar panels, electric vehicle charging stations, and Tesla Powerwall energy storage systems. John Sheldon, Director of New Business Capabilities at Renu Energy Solutions, expressed his excitement for the Solar Roof.
“For over a decade, Renu has been bringing clean energy to the Carolinas. As a proud partner of Tesla for the past five years, this next step of becoming one of the first Tesla Roof Certified Installers in the Carolinas is a natural progression. We are honored that our body of work and quality customer care has earned this vote of confidence from Tesla. This will enable us to continue being industry educators, as well as trusted service providers, with each new solar installation,” he said. Braden Ankeney, an Account Manager at Tesla, shared Sheldon’s optimism about the partnership. “We’re excited about a new install partner offering Tesla Solar Roof to customers in the Carolinas,” Ankeney said.
With capabilities to harness the sun’s energy similarly to conventional solar panels, Tesla Solar Roof allows for maximum solar production while maintaining a seamless and integrated roof design to match architectural style. Following this certification and the completion of initial local home installations, the Renu team is actively marketing the Solar Roof to new residential customers as well as ones who may be pursuing a roof replacement. Featuring a 25-year tile and power warranty, Tesla Solar Roof incorporates both passive and active tiles to optimize the absorption of the sun’s rays.
