Energizing With Integrity

About Renova

At Renova, we're committed to delivering practical, sustainable solar energy production and battery storage. And as our mission statement continues, "Our brand will be national, our commitment local, and our standards the highest - to the long-term benefit of our employees, customers and community."

We truly do seek to embody "Local. Brighter. Better." with a passionate commitment to customer service. And we believe that begins with empowering employees, which is why we are an employee-owned company. We also work to give back to the community, with frequent school tours and participation in community events.

Our Values

  • Integrity

    Renova prides itself on working with integrity in all aspects. We ascribe to the SEIA Code of Conduct for solar companies, which means we operate with the highest standards for our sales and installation practices. We work to inform and educate our potential customers, and help them decide if solar is right for their particular circumstance, and are not afraid to advise them not to move forward if it's in their best interest. We operate with a collaborative mindset focused on continuous improvement as it relates to policies, procedures and technology - anything that enhances the experience with Renova for our employees and customers. This results in high employee satisfaction, longevity and loyalty. Respect for each other and our customers is built into the DNA of Renova. That translates into a very knowledgeable, enthusiastic and caring culture that is dedicated to authentic, heartfelt customer service.
  • Innovation

    Renova works hard to stay ahead of new developments in the renewable energy arena - going so far as to have our own research and development facility for battery storage. We extensively test new equipment options in-house and in the field before making them available to customers. We also strive to utilize the latest in technology to enhance our internal communications and those with customers in order to make your process of going solar as smooth as possible.
  • Intelligence

    Renova prides itself on being an authority on solar, battery storage and everything related to it. That's why we provide a site survey at your home or business before we prepare a proposal. That's why we collect your past energy bills, or collect 15-minute interval energy data for businesses. That's why we install and test each model of battery before we make it available to the public. And that's why we're the only local company that is accredited by the North American Board of Certified Energy Practitioners (NABCEP), one of only nine companies in the country to have successfully passed their rigorous investigation into sales and installation practices.

Employee Owned

The Renova Employee Stock Ownership Program

Companies work better when everyone acts like an owner. And at Renova, everything works better because everyone is an owner! Under the Renova ESOP program, after only a year each team member is given shares in the company. Why does that matter? Empowered employees can make decisions on the spot. That leads to better customer service and inspires loyalty and longevity among employees, so you're dealing with seasoned professionals.
