we have a ton of experience, our goal is to share it with you.

​​Our desire to share all the experience we've accumulated over the past 16 years led us to ask, how can ​help people educate themselves at their own pace while ​adding that signature Renovus touch? How can we be accessible, personable, and make the process of going solar simple and easy no matter how familiar you are with the technology? Our attempt to make sure we provide the best service possible to our customers and potential customers led to the birth of the Solar Guide Series.

​Our Solar Guide Series is an ever-expanding set of downloadable eBooks, recorded webinars, ​ short-form videos and blog posts that will help to explain the ins-and-outs of solar. ​The goal of all this content is simple; ​share all the knowledge we've accumulated over the years with the world and make solar easy to understand.

Check out some of the first installments of the Solar Guide Series below, and stay in touch to get up-to-date releases on all the new goodies our team will be putting together. We hope we can make your journey to living a solar lifestyle a bit easier!
