Six months ago I started planning a solar system for our new house in Arizona. After talking to a couple of wholesalers, I decided to go on this trip with Renvu. I am an engineer/scientist but have no solar installation background whatsoever. Since I got quotes from the bigger turn-key solar outfitters for almost three times the price, I wanted to go all the way by myself with the installation. Our electrician just did the grid tie-in to be safe. Roque from Renvu was incredibly helpful and responsive. I particularly appreciate that he didn’t give me any “sales BS” but rather answered my questions carefully and got additional information from his team if needed. We had dozens of conversations to size the system just right and to optimize the cost and the return, tailored to all the constraints of city approvals, APS power company approvals, house power service amperage, and our usage, and then about installation details and electrical connections. The overall cost of the system in the end came out barely above $1k per kW DC (22.3 kW). This is a huge system (58 panels) and I personally tightened every nut and bolt. The most difficult thing was to get the panels on the roof but with some thinking and a small electric winch it worked. Renvu provided the PE stamped plans for permits and approvals and sent me everything I needed to Arizona, from roof mounting hardware to the grid disconnects. Other difficulties included shipping damage (a forklift at UPS poking through some panels) which again was handled quickly and efficiently by Renvu. Overall, it was definitely not an easy undertaking but Renvu exceeded my expectations up to the moment when I finally flipped the switch this week and started enjoying my own power and carbon offsets.
