Renu Energy Solutions has completed a 742-panel solar installation on the roof of Truliant Federal Credit Union’s new Hanes Mall Operations Center in Winston-Salem, North Carolina.
“Renu is excited to be a solar partner to support Truliant’s corporate sustainability initiatives,” said Jay Radcliffe, president and CEO of Renu Energy Solutions. “Truliant is truly paving the way as a leader in our communities in reducing its environmental impact, and we are honored to be a part of Truliant’s efforts.”
Truliant recently converted a former three-story Macy’s store at Hanes Mall into a credit union operations center. It used 51,000 square feet of rooftop space, roughly the size of a football field, for a 352-kW bi-facial solar installation. The system is fully functional.
“Just as we work to be good stewards of our members’ finances, Truliant is committed to doing the same for our environment,” said Truliant President and CEO Todd Hall. “Rooftop solar panels are one of several sustainability initiatives at our Operations Center that help advance corporate social responsibility at the local level.”
The system will produce 485,000 kWh in its first year. The solar project is the largest rooftop solar installation in Forsyth County. Truliant will receive all power directly from the panels.
“We hope that Truliant, by adding to our rooftop solar inventory, will provide an incentive for others to consider corporate sustainability projects in their businesses as a tool to attract workers, accommodate growth and stimulate more economic activity while conserving usable space and preserving our character. city,” said Winston-Salem Mayor Allen Joines.
North Carolina ranks fourth nationally in installed solar capacity, according to SEIA. Solar accounted for 45% of all new electricity generation capacity added to the US grid during the third quarter of 2022, more than any other electricity source, according to SEIA.
