RGS Energy will originate residential solar power purchase agreement (PPA) projects with RGS Financing, Inc., the in-house solar financing division for RGS Energy, with the OneRoof Energy partnership allowing RGS to expand its in-house financing to new states and further broaden its product offering to include PPAs.

“Our synergistic partnership with RGS Energy, a proven leader in marketing and distribution, allows us to focus on our core strengths of EPC and PPA financing to make solar energy affordable and accessible for homeowners,” said OneRoof Energy president and chief executive officer, David Field. “OneRoof Energy’s state-of-the-art proprietary design and quote technology will be shared by both companies which has been proven to shorten install times and reduce cancellations while making going solar a simple process. Our integrated offering will initially be marketed in New York, Massachusetts and California, with plans to expand to additional solar markets this year.”
