ReNU Solar Panels [1]

While the advantages of solar power are profound and many, some homeowners continue to shy away from the installation of residential photovoltaic cells due to high upfront costs and long “payback” timelines. But now, a rental program called REnU [2] is making all that money talk a moot point. Delaware-based Citizenre [3], a renewable energy development group, will rent solar panels to US residents on a per-kilowatt basis on a one, five, or twenty-five year contract. With only a $500 deposit, paid back at the end of the contract WITH interest, homeowners can easily and inexpensively make the switch from local utilities to solar power. What’s more, Citizenre [3] acquires all necessary permits for residential installation, making the process easy as pie.
