Renova Has A Strong Commitment to Sustainability

Renova’s commitment to sustainability comes not just from being in the solar business, but because it’s the right thing to do.

Renova’s commitment to sustainability comes not just from being in the solar business, but because it’s the right thing to do.

Our headquarters building is a prime example. In 2008 it was a rundown building and Renova founder Vincent Battaglia worked with the owner to make it over into the “GreenZone” and took the master lease, although at the time Renova only needed a small office in the 14,400 sq. ft. building. Sustainable improvements included:

  • 75 solar lights
  • Tile and carpet made from recycled materials
  • No VOC paint
  • Increased insulation
  • Solar on the roof

As Renova grew and other leases expired, Renova took more and more of the space, finally culminating in Renova’s purchase of the building in 2016.

In the last few years, Renova has continued to make strides in sustainability. We’ve added an electric car charger powered by solar in the front for public use, two additional chargers for employee and company vehicles (of which there are several), as well as two bikes and a golf cart to travel between the primary administrative building and Renova’s operations building a block away. Renova also strives to purchase as many items as possible locally, including vehicles, printing, promotional items, gift basket items and electrical supplies, all to help cut down on supply side carbon emissions. For our maintenance division, Renova has custom designed and retrofitted two cleaning vehicles with battery-operated power washers rather than smog-emitting gasoline generators.

Insulated branded water bottles are given to each employee to cut down on plastic waste, and filtered water is available at both buildings for fill-ups. Even small things like having the printer set to default to two-sided printing and having a recycling container as well as a trash container at each desk makes a big difference.
