RGS Energy Mobile App, RGS 365TM, Wins Rose Gold Award at 2018 Muse Creative Awards
April 11, 2018


DENVER, Colo., April 11, 2018
RGS Energy (NASDAQ: RGSE), America’s Original Solar Company® since 1978, has won a 2018 Muse Creative Award in the mobile app category, Rose Gold level, for its cloud-based customer and business solution, RGS 365TM.

The Muse Creative Awards is an international competition that recognizes creative professionals who inspire through concept, writing or design using traditional or electronic media.


Muse Creative Awards is administered and judged by International Awards Associates (IAA), a global organization comprised of internationally-recognized creative professionals. IAA provides the judges and sets the competition’s rigorous standards. In this year’s competition there were more than 1,350 submissions from 37 countries around the world.

“We recognize the breakthrough achievement of designers, marketers, artists, writers, photographers, videographers, and digital experts who set the trends of the global creative industry,” said Kenjo Ong, President for the IAA. “They hear the voice of an inner muse, inspiring others to rise together.”


According to Dan Coffey, RGS Energy’s director of IT Solutions: “RGS 365TM arose from our sales, construction, customer service and IT teams collectively rethinking what would be the best way to communicate with our customers to manage their solar sales and installation process. We were also fortunate to have a software developer with a strong pedigree who assisted us, and with whom we share this auspicious award.”

This summer RGS Energy plans to launch POWERHOUSETM 3.0, an innovative and visually stunning solar shingle system that features next-generation technology developed by The Dow Chemical Company. The revolutionary roofing product combines the protection of a conventional asphalt roof with an integrated photovoltaic system that provides power to the home.


Brad Bentzen, director of RGS Energy’s POWERHOUSETM division, commented: “As we began to communicate with local roofers about how to best deliver POWERHOUSETM 3.0 and support their efforts, the overwhelming response has been that we should offer RGS 365 as a SaaS solution for roofing companies. So, we’ve now implemented plans to build upon this award-winning mobile app and enhance it for this purpose.”
