RALEIGH, N.C. - Jan. 30, 2018 - PRLog -- Welcome Holdings, a local real estate firm has announced Revisn (http://revisn.com): a technologically forward extended-stay apartment hotel concept in downtown Raleigh. This property is equipped with electronic keys, a 24-hour concierge, and other features that allow residents to manage their experience via smartphone or their voice using Amazon Alexa. Chairman and CEO of Welcome Holdings, Dicky Walia said that the large-scale investment in solar photovoltaic investment is in line with the company's vision of smart development, sustainability and that part of this technological future is renewable energy. This system will be installed by Southern Energy Management (http://southern-energy.com/), a local solar company located in Morrisville. Its owner and founder, Bob Kingery, has commented on the project saying, "I am happy to see more and more companies becoming responsible for their impact on the planet. I am also grateful to be part of the solution and to pave the ways for companies like Welcome Holdings to invest in renewable energy and future-based solutions."

Once installed, the solar panels will convert sunlight into direct current (DC) electricity and then be converted via an inverter into usable alternating current (AC) electricity that will power residences. Revisn's solar system will be comprised of 134 modules angled to maximize the amount of sunlight they will receive on its posterior roof. This system uses net metering which means the solar system is still connected to the grid. Any additional energy not being used will be sent to the grid in exchange of a credit. As a result, when the solar panels are not generating electricity, such as during the night time, Revisn can draw on the grid for power in exchange for the energy they sent to it earlier. This system is sized to produce 56,315 kilowatt hours annually which is the equivalent of 1,086 tree seedlings planted, 92,397 pounds of carbon offset, or 102,722 miles not driven.

This investment comes at a time when homeowners and businesses are increasingly making the switch to renewable energy. This switch is typically motivated by environmental and economic factors. Solar energy is a form of clean, renewable energy that reduces or eliminates energy bills.
