GenRenew (also known as SunPower by GenRenew LLC), provides residential solar and home improvement services to homeowners in three states: New Jersey, New York, and Illinois. The company has been named a top 500 solar contractor by Solar Power World magazine every year from 2017 to 2020, and has installed more than 5,700 kilowatts of clean, renewable energy since its 2016 founding.
GenRenew is a SunPower Master Dealer, meaning in addition to the LG panels it already installs, the company is also authorized to install solar panels and inverters from SunPower, one of the solar industry’s leaders.
SunPower Master Dealers not only provide homeowners with some of the most energy efficient solar cells available, they also protect customers through SunPower’s Complete Confidence Warranty, which covers parts, labor, and production for the first 25 years of system operation.
GenRenew has been certified by the North American Board of Certified Energy Practitioners (NABCEP) meaning the solar company’s technicians have undergone advanced solar installation training designed to reduce error and potential damage to the home. Companies with an NABCEP certification mark themselves as true experts in the field, and customers can be confident they’re receiving a quality system.
GenRenew provides hands-on assistance at every step of the solar process. This includes help during the initial site assessment, which evaluates energy consumption, output potential, and the condition of the roof. If the home is a good candidate for solar, GenRenew will explain the details of the service contract, including available financing options, for the solar energy system.
Prior to installation, the solar energy company will secure all necessary permits and licenses to ensure everything is built up to code. Once the permitting is in place, installation usually takes less than a week. GenRenew will then work with city inspectors to make sure the solar power system is up to par, then with the utility company to content the system to the power grid.
Customers have a number of financing options available to them if they choose GenRenew. In addition to direct purchase and solar loans through Dividend Solar, customers are also able to lease their solar panel system, or buy energy through a power purchase agreement (PPA). This means GenRenew can adjust its solar offering to just about any budget and home energy goal.
GenRenew does more than solar energy; the company can improve a home’s energy efficiency in a number of ways:
