Utility Spotlight Series in 2024: Apex

Apex’s Path to Sustainable Energy and Savings

The collaboration between NC Solar Now and the Town of Apex represents sustainable energy initiatives and municipal partnerships in North Carolina since 2015.

NC Solar Now, is the leader in renewable energy that has been at the forefront of advocating for solar adoption across North Carolina. With a commitment to environmental stewardship and innovative energy solutions, the company has garnered recognition for its expertise in designing and implementing solar projects of varying scales.

The Town of Apex, nestled in the heart of North Carolina’s Research Triangle region, has emerged as a proactive municipality keen on embracing renewable energy practices. Recognizing the importance of sustainability and the potential economic benefits of transitioning to clean energy sources, Apex has embarked on initiatives to reduce its carbon footprint and promote environmental resilience.

At NC Solar Now, we believe in not just installing solar panels but also in empowering communities through education and collaboration. On May 20th, 2015, we had the privilege of conducting a solar presentation for the Town of Apex, marking a significant milestone in our commitment to spreading awareness about renewable energy solutions and reinforcing Apex’s commitment to renewable energy.

Purpose of the Presentation
1. Educating Local Staff
2. Partnering with City Utilities
3. Building Community Trust
4. Promoting Quality Local Contractors

Educating Local Staff
The purpose of the presentation was twofold: to educate the inspection staff of the Town of Apex about the burgeoning solar industry and to provide guidance on the installation of safe and compliant solar systems. With solar energy rapidly gaining traction as a sustainable alternative to traditional power sources, it was imperative for the town’s employees to stay informed and equipped to handle the evolving landscape of solar installations.

Partnering with City Utilities
The Town of Apex reached out to us as a trusted local installer they were comfortable collaborating with. This acknowledgment of our expertise and reliability underscored the strong relationship we had built with the community over the years. It was a testament to our commitment to delivering top-notch solar solutions while prioritizing safety and compliance.

The event saw an impressive turnout, with over 16 Town employees in attendance, alongside NC Solar Now staff and our solar distributor. Our Director of Operations, Karl Stupka, and owner, Steve Nicolas, spearheaded the presentation, sharing invaluable insights into various aspects of solar energy systems. From discussing different types of equipment to explaining system design principles and highlighting fire safety measures, the presentation covered a wide range of topics relevant to solar installations.

Building Community Trust
The success of the event underscored the importance of collaboration between public and private entities in driving the adoption of renewable energy solutions. By working hand in hand with local authorities, we can accelerate the transition towards a more sustainable future, one solar panel at a time.

The solar presentation for the Town of Apex was not just an educational event but a symbol of our shared commitment to building a greener, more resilient community. As we continue our journey towards a cleaner, brighter future, let us remember the power of collaboration and the impact it can have in shaping our world for generations to come.

In 2019, four years after the training session conducted by NC Solar Now and the Town of Apex, significant strides were made. The Mayor and Town Council proactively removed obstacles hindering solar photovoltaic (PV) system installations and introduced a series of solar-friendly policies. This overhaul aimed to streamline the process, making solar application, installation, and utilization more affordable, user-friendly, and accessible to Apex residents.
