RGS Energy Provides Professional Solar Panel Installation Services

When it comes to installing solar panels on a home, no matter the size, it is important that you choose a company that is able to provide a premium service. Installing solar panels isn’t just about putting some panels on top of a roof and connecting them to a home’s electrical network. Solar panels must be placed in a precise alignment and direction in order to maximize that potential solar energy that is captured within a given day. Additionally, support for the panels must be precisely calculated in order to make sure that no damage is caused to the roofing material or the structural beams that help to support the underboarding of the roof.

To Be The Best, You Have to Provide The Best

When it comes to providing the best in solar panel installation v, our installation team is only half of the equation. While other solar energy companies may try to cut corners on the quality of their solar panels in order to provide a lower price point to their customers, we here at RGS Energy do not subscribe to this philosophy. Installing lesser quality solar panels, while cheaper in the beginning, will actually work to cost a homeowner more money in the long run. Substandard panels are not as efficient as high quality panels, meaning that they will not be able to convert as much solar energy into useable power. Additionally, cheaper panels require more maintenance and repairs and, in many cases, will need to be replaced at a much higher rate than their.

At RGS Energy, we only use the highest quality solar panels so that all of our customers can rest assured they are getting the most out of their investment into solar energy.

Electricity without solar? Yuk. Even if SCE rates DON’T rise (and pigs fly), we would have paid Edison between $130K and $140K over 20 years.
