Founded in Maryland, Renewable Energy Corporation is a family-owned company that has grown to become one of the largest residential solar companies in the Mid-Atlantic region.
The company services Maryland, District of Columbia, including the following cities:
Renewable Energy Corporation also serves parts of Northern Virginia, Southern Virginia, Delaware, and Southern Pennsylvania.
The company is unique in that installs solar water heaters and solar attics in addition to solar panels and solar batteries. Additionally, the solar panels installed are made in the United States, which may be a selling point to prospective customers.
While the company doesn’t provide detailed information about financing on its website, we know it does offer $0 down solar installations to qualified customers. Ask your company representative for more information on this as well as Maryland’s state grant to supplement federal tax incentives for solar installation.
Homeowners concerned about their carbon footprint may be interested in working with a company committed to combating climate change beyond the universally beneficial impacts of solar.
Renewable Energy Corporation practices what they preach, using energy-efficient fluorescent lighting in its warehouse and offices. They also request that manufacturers ship multiple units at the same time, reducing emissions via fuel consumption in transport.
The company is also listed in the Maryland Green Registry, indicating a commitment to reducing carbon emissions.
According to its website, the number of solar systems installed has offset more than 93,500 pounds of coal from being burned and 165,000 pounds of carbon dioxide released into the atmosphere.
So, while all solar companies contribute to sustainability efforts by virtue of their product, Renewable Energy Corporation demonstrates a greater commitment to sustainability than we usually see.
While we need a large reviews repository to determine the company’s degree of customer satisfaction and how it compares to other solar companies, there are a couple of indicators that Renewable Energy Corporation is willing to go the extra mile for customers.
For one, it provides a thorough explanation of batteries and other aspects of solar on the website. We love to see customer education happening before or in conjunction with a sales pitch.
We also appreciate that the company offers a discount to certain professionals. Military, firefighters, police, EMTs, paramedics, 911 dispatchers, and eligible healthcare professionals get a $500 discount on their solar installation.
Top-tier solar equipment, including solar panels, inverters, and solar batteries, is paramount to a successful solar installation and lifespan.
Renewable Energy Corporation has developed a series of partnerships in the solar technology industry and the energy sector as a whole in order to provide their customers with the most current energy products on the market.
Among these partnerships include the following:
Renewable Energy Corporation is affiliated with an array of organizations that are advocates for the clean energy movement. This, again, demonstrates a commitment to reducing carbon emissions and developing and distributing innovative renewable energy equipment.
Some of its affiliations include The United States Green Building Council, The American Solar Energy Society, The Maryland Green Registry, and The Building Trades Association.
Online monitoring is quickly becoming an industry standard and for good reason. This empowers customers to track their system's energy generation and consumption so they are alerted to any problems with their equipment.
It is unclear whether Renewable Energy Corporation offers this service.
Many solar-panel companies will offer their customers an energy-production guarantee. This offers customers peace of mind in knowing the minimum amount of energy that they can expect to be produced on a monthly basis.
Renewable Energy Corporation doesn't provide this information so we assume such a guarantee does not come with a solar installation with this company.
While it seems like a trustworthy company with high-quality products and services, prospective customers need to see reviews from past and current customers to make that call. If you’ve worked with Renewable Energy Corporation, please consider leaving a review below to assist us in our analysis of this solar company.
There are several benefits to considering Renewable Energy Corporation for your solar project. The company has several years of experience in both commercial and residential solar, has formed important partnerships that supply reliable equipment, and the company is affiliated with many pro-green organizations.
We recommend asking if Renewable Energy Corporation provides online monitoring or an energy production guarantee before making a final decision.
Keep in mind that only residents of Maryland, DC, and select areas in the Mid-Atlantic region can work with this company.
