Renewable Energy Makes Idaho News

We are passionate about the community we live in, as well as the people we serve, and we love our great country! As such we want to see only the best choices made for the future of all. Renewable Energy NW LLC owner Carl Simpson put together a few personal thoughts in a recent letter to the editor and we wanted to be sure to share it with you here:

The story of energy is one of evolution, and American innovation has always been crucial to it. As consumers, businesses and public governments increasingly look to lower-carbon options, I’m glad the U.S. will continue to be at the forefront of new clean energy technologies thanks to smart thinking from Congress.

In the final days of last year, leaders in Washington passed the Energy Act — a major infusion of cash into clean energy innovation (like solar, wind and storage) over the next five years. It came on the tailwinds of other important progress for American clean energy innovation right here in Idaho: $10 million in federal funding to support a partnership between Idaho National Laboratory and Xcel Energy. Together they’ll transform our knowledge of hydrogen and potentially the nuclear energy industry as we know it.

Clean energy is a powerful economic development tool and job creator here in the Gem State as well as nationwide. Beyond that new advancements have made clean energy among the most cost-conscious options for consumers. Senator Crapo and other leaders’ sustained commitment to innovation will continue its trajectory and contribute to a more resilient and affordable U.S. power system.

With a focused approach towards energy efficiency first then renewable energy we can make sound economic decisions for clean energy that make cent$.

Carl Simpson, Star

Invest In Your Energy Future!

IDAHO! The time to start saving is NOW!
That’s right, right now – with whole home energy solutions from Renewable Energy NW LLC!

Solar thermal itself is one of the most efficient forms of renewable energy at over 94% efficiency; it is just one of the methods we employ to help lower you overall home power load.

Because we look at the big picture of how you use energy in your home, instead of just measuring your roof to see how many solar panels can be crammed into it, we know that your needs can change over time. As such it is wise not to rely on just one system to handle all of the work; so we combine things like long life light bulbs, vibration free attic fans, and even solar thermal cooling to provide year round solutions for your home now and into the future.

What this provides is not only energy savings that you will see right away but also an investment in future power security for years to come! Best of all, should you decide to sell your home down the road you will be happy to know that homes with solar tend to not only sell 20% faster but also for higher value. But don’t go thinking that these solutions are something you can only have if you’re building new – no way! – we can help any home old or new start saving with the power of the sun!

Stop Paying Your Power Bill!

Just imagine if you could! Well, the good news is it’s not just some far fetched idea. Thanks to the modern technology we use in our whole home energy solutions you can start cutting those energy bills right away. You see, Renewable Energy NW LLC provides much more than just solar pv, or even just solar thermal – we take a look at the big picture of your home’s energy expenditures and see where we can reduce costs before we even start measuring out your roof to see how much solar will fit on it.

Here’s a great example!
We received a call yesterday from a customer that we installed a system from over 5 years ago. They had a question about a Solar PV system and charging into old lead batteries. Once the question was answered, I inquired how the solar thermal system was working. His comment was “great”! They had not turned the gas hot water heater on since they moved into the new house over 5 years ago.

Our home energy solutions aren’t just for new construction! While you certainly don’t have to start from the ground up it can be easier to install the systems necessary for optimal savings while the home is being built, but even existing homes can see an amazing savings on energy bills using our recommendations. We’ll begin by assessing your current power bill, look at where it’s costing you the most, and then provide a comprehensive energy plan to help you start saving right away.

Our solar solutions are about more than just heating your home too! While solar thermal is known for it’s super efficient ability to radiantly heat floors and walkways we can also use our systems to provide cooling as well. Best of all you can enjoy these savings the entire time you live in your home and should it come time to relocate you can count on these improvements adding to your overall home value. Give us a call today to schedule your free solar site visit!

We’re excited to be able to provide whole home energy solutions to reduce your power bills and increase your enjoyment of your home!
