Renewable Energy

Wind Energy

Residential wind is a viable option for many landowners in the Savannah. Western NC is one of the few regions in the state that has a sufficient wind resource. General requirements for an effective wind system require a yearly average of at least 10 to 12 mph winds and minimum of one acre of cleared land. Contact High Country Energy Solutions, Inc. to have your site evaluated for the feasibility of wind.

Micro-Hydro Electric Energy

By using the flow and elevation drop of small water systems micro-hydro electric turbines harness energy to produce electricity. These systems operate reliably, seven days a week and 24 hours a day. High Country Energy Solutions, Inc. offers micro-hydro systems configured for both off-grid and grid-tied applications. For a site assessment please contact us.

Energy Analysis

High Country Energy Solutions, Inc. offers energy analysis solutions for new and existing residential structures. One of the largest and most cost effective ways to save energy on utility bills is to limit the amount of conditioned air that leaves your home. We can analyze and measure every aspect of your home, and design a custom solution to meet your needs.How we measure:

  • Thermal imagining
  • Blowing door testing
  • Duct Blaster testing

These methods allow us to develop a complete energy profile of your home so we can quickly and more accurately resolve any problems.


Whole-House Weatherization

Whole-House Weatherization:Weatherizing your home is guaranteed to reduce your energy bills. Many of our clients have seen a savings of 15% or more! Why wait another day when you could increase the comfort of your home, improve your indoor air quality, and provide your family with a cleaner and safer living environment. As the cost of heating and cooling our buildings continues to rise, it is imperative we retrofit and construct our homes in an energy efficient manner.  Services HCES offers to meet this need include:

  • Air Sealing
  • Duct Sealing
  • Insulation
  • Sealed Crawl Spaces
  • Moisture Control
  • Radon Mitigation

The Department of Energy estimates, "On average, weatherization reduces heating bills by 32% and overall energy bills by about $350 per year at current prices". Please contact us for a thorough evaluation of your home so you can start saving energy and money today.



High Country Energy Solutions, Inc. offers several environmentally friendly insulation products. Products offered include:

  • Blown Cellulose
  • Blown formaldehyde free fiberglass
  • Dense-Packed Cellulose
  • Formaldehyde Free Fiberglass Batt Insulation
  • Soy-based Spray Foam.

Our cellulose insulation is composed of 80-85% recycled newsprint. In addition, cellulose can easily be added to existing insulation to increase overall R-value. 
Formaldehyde free fiberglass batt insulation does not release harmful VOC's (volatile organic compounds) commonly found in generic fiberglass insulation materials. 
Soy-based spray foam insulation is a product similar to icynene that works as an air barrier and thermal barrier, but is more environmentally friendly than icynene. High Country Energy Solutions, Inc. has competitive prices for both new construction and retrofit installations.


Sealed Crawl Space Encapsulation

During much of the year high humidity-laden air enters the crawl space via the vents and then condenses on all the cool surfaces that are below the dew point.These surfaces are often your plumbing pipes and HVAC ducts. If we open our vents in the winter time to allow the cold dry air to enter the crawlspace maybe this drying concept could work. However, everyone operates the crawl space vents just the opposite to conserve heat or air conditioning. The better option:

Recent research at Advanced Energy in Raleigh has shown that a sealed crawl space can greatly reduce the moisture load on the home as well as save energy.

Our Sealed Crawl space services involves:

  • Sealing off the air vents
  • Insulating the crawl space walls instead of the floor
  • Using a reinforced, puncture resistant liner that extends all the way up the walls where it is mechanically fastened
  • Installing a sump pump in case a plumbing pipe breaks
  • Installing a dehumidifier to keep the area dry
  • Radon control
  • Radon mitigation
