The Tesla Solar Roof ramp may not be as quick as Elon Musk hinted at before, but the unique solar tiles are being expanded to more areas in the United States. To bring the Solar Roof to the Carolinas, for example, Renu Energy Solutions, a local solar installer, announced its partnership with Tesla today.

Tesla’s Solar Roof tiles are quite compelling as they are aesthetically pleasing and made with tempered glass, making them several times stronger than standard roofing tiles. They’re also engineered for all-weather durability. So far, Renu is among a handful of qualified Tesla Solar Roof installers in South Carolina, and it is also the first certified Tesla Solar Roof installer in North Carolina.

As noted in a press release, the Renu team is now actively marketing the Solar Roof to new residential clients as well as those who may be looking to replace their roofs. Prior to its announcement today, Renu has completed a number of initial local home installations of the innovative solar product. 

The Tesla Solar Roof effectively expands Renu’s lineup of renewable products being offered to consumers in the Carolinas. The installer also offers conventional solar panels, electric vehicle charging stations, and Tesla Powerwall energy storage systems. John Sheldon, Director of New Business Capabilities at Renu Energy Solutions, expressed his excitement for the Solar Roof. 

“For over a decade, Renu has been bringing clean energy to the Carolinas. As a proud partner of Tesla’s for the past five years, this next step of becoming one of the first Tesla Roof Certified Installers in the Carolinas is a natural progression. We are honored that our body of work and quality customer care have earned this vote of confidence from Tesla. This will enable us to continue being industry educators, as well as trusted service providers, with each new solar installation,” he said. 

Braden Ankeney, an Account Manager at Tesla, shared Sheldon’s optimism about the partnership. “We’re excited about a new install partner offering Tesla Solar Roof to customers in the Carolinas,” Ankeney said.
