Finger Lakes - Renovus Solar is proud that our LEED certified, carbon neutral, solar-powered base facility in Ithaca stands as a shining example of how other businesses can thrive with clean solar energy. Other cities and communities throughout the area like Auburn, Geneva, Skaneateles, and Watkins Glen can enjoy renewable energy solutions like Community Solar, Energy Storage, and our Ground or Roof-Mounted Systems.

Community Solar is a local ground-based solution consisting of many solar panels situated in an ideal location for maximum exposure to the sun. Energy generated at your nearby community solar farm accrues credits with the utility company. Those credits are applied to your bill, whether you own or rent your home, saving you money every billing cycle.

If a solution on your own property is a better option for you, our Roof-Mounted Systems or Ground-Mounted Systems are custom designed for your property or building by engineers who are experienced at crafting and installing our durable, lightweight solar energy panels in all sorts of applications.

Be sure to follow the links to explore more about Energy Storage Solutions, Ground-Mounted Solutions, Roof-Mounted Systems, and Community Solar. Provide your home or business with reliable, clean energy whenever it is needed and save generous amounts on your energy bills each and every month.

ROOF-MOUNTED SYSTEMS

​Roof-Mounted Sytems are what many families think of first when it comes to having a solar powered home. ​Many ​Finger Lakes homes have great sun exposure, why not have your roof keep you dry and save you money!

​Ground-MOUNTED SYSTEMS

​Ground-Mounted Solar Systems are great for solar customers who have more land, and potentially higher energy demand. These systems are not limited by roof size, so can be as large as needed to fit your home's needs!

​Energy Storage systems

​We know ​Finger Lakes solar customers are concerned about the snow, the clouds and other weather factors. Energy storage systems can help you stave off those energy grid charges, even in non-ideal conditions.

​Community solar SYSTEMS

Everyone who pays an electricity bill can take advantage of solar power and save money, without installing solar panels on their roof or property. Community Solar projects are local, centrally located solar systems serving many households.

​Understanding your savings

SAM & MARY

Live on a gorgeous wooded plot just outside of ​Auburn. They want to go solar to offset the energy bills generated by Mary's indoor garden and Sam's wood shop. They're retired, so they need to pay less that their utility bill immediately to make an investment in solar worth it.

​ERASING THEIR BILL

​Was their goal, and since they couldn't do solar onsite, they worked with Renovus and discovered that community solar would be a great option. They found that there was space on a farm in Cayuga County near their home and decided to go for it.

​LOCAL FINANCING

​Was available through their local credit union. Turns out, the combination of low interest local loans, and discounts off the total price in the form of Federal and Local tax credits meant they would be producing 100% of their own electricity AND saving money Day One.
