RGS Energy Closes Acquisition of Sunetric

California Solar Panel Installation, Financing, and Rebates

California is home to 55% of all residential U.S. solar panel installations – what’s holding you back?

Say Goodbye to Rising Electricity Rates

Soaring utility prices and year-round sun make home solar panels a cheaper, smarter choice for a lower electricity bill in California. Why pay more for dirty power when you can save thousands with clean solar energy?

California’s Most Trusted Solar Provider Since 1978

RGS Energy got its start in 1978 as Real Goods, a sustainable living store in Northern California that sold some of the first retail solar panels in the United States.

We still have the Real Goods store for sustainable living products, but now – as RGS Energy – we bring clean energy solutions straight to your home with expert solar panel installations that reduce the cost of your electricity. We serve much of California, from Mendocino County through the San Francisco Bay Area, Silicon Valley, Fresno and the Central Valley, and south to the Los Angeles Basin and Inland Empire.

CA Rebates + Incentives

Solar incentives in California are driven by the state’s aggressive Renewables Portfolio Standard (RPS), which mandates 33% of California’s electricity must come from renewable energy sources by 2020. To reach this goal, California is offering incentives like these for going solar.

  • 30% Federal Tax Credit
  • California Solar Initiative (CSI) Incentive
  • Utility rebates
  • Property tax exemptions
  • Additional local rebates

We’ll take care of all your rebate applications and paperwork.

CA Solar Financing Options

California homeowners have access to some of the best solar financing options available. With some of the nation’s highest utility electric rates, you have the opportunity to save with solar for $0 down.*

RGS Energy also offers an exclusive solar financing program called the Mosaic Home Solar Loan. It’s a loan funded by a community of online investors who finance a system you own from day one while investing little or nothing up front.

We’ll help determine which option will provide you with the best savings.
