Save With Solar in Massachusetts

It is no secret that the world as we know it is at a tipping point. As the global population increases, access to technology is made more readily available, and more people come to want the same standard of living as more developed countries, energy demands are going to increase at a rate that, unless we take action now, will become unsustainable. According to a recent study published by the U.S. Energy Information Administration energy demands in the United States are only expected to rise over the next 30 years, however, there is some good news that comes from this report. The renewable energy sector, especially energy produced by solar panels, is expected to rise sharply in the coming decades as the technology becomes cheaper, more widely available, and economically viable for industrial applications. Over this same period, coal-fired power plants are going to see a dramatic decrease in use, an eventuality that many across the country have been waiting for for years.

Since 1978, RGS Energy has been at the forefront of the solar energy sector. We have dedicated our professional lives to help residents of Massachusetts make the switch to solar energy and, as a result, lower their electricity bills, reduce their carbon footprint, and lessen the burden that is placed on municipal power grids. Through the services that we have provided over the past four decades, we have helped our clients, collectively, save millions of dollars that would have otherwise been spent on electricity and, looking forward, we hope to help even more residents of this state make the switch to clean, affordable, and renewable solar energy.

Professional Installation Makes All The Difference

Throughout life, we rely on professionals to provide services that we are unable to provide for ourselves.

At RGS Energy, we are experts at what we do. We have been involved in the solar energy business since 1978 and, during this time, we have seen about everything that there is to see. We were there when solar panels were considered a gimmick. We were there when solar panel technology lept forward. We were there when the country began to take solar power seriously and we will be here when solar power is a major source of energy production. We are professionals through and through and, if you choose us for your solar panel installation needs in Massachusetts, we can guarantee that you won’t be disappointed with the services that we provide.

What Can Solar Energy Do For Massachusetts Residents?

If you are a resident of the state of Massachusetts, you are probably already aware of the fact that Massachusetts has some of the highest electricity rates in the country. According to information published by the U.S. Energy Information Administration, average residential energy costs in the state of Massachusetts in June of 2017 were 19.97 cents per kilowatt hour. This rate is the second highest among states in the contiguous United States and, unless serious steps are taken to provide more access to other types of energy, is only projected to rise. Making the switch to solar in Massachusetts not only saves you money on your electricity bill, it also helps to alleviate the strain that is put on the state’s electric grid. To add even more of an incentive to adopting solar energy, in December of 2015 the Solar Loan Program was initiated. This program is designed to incentivize banks and lenders to make solar lending a part of their portfolios by providing these entities with funding provided by DOER and the Mass Clean Energy Center.

What Other Benefits Does Solar Offer?

At this point in time, nearly everyone is aware of the fact that solar panels help to cut down on the amount of money that people have to spend on their electricity bill. However, reduced utilities are not the only reason that Massachusetts area residents are deciding to make the switch to solar energy. Below, we have listed a few more reasons that people are making an investment into solar.

Great Returns: With any investment, it is important for people to have an understanding of what their rate of return is going to be. In relation to solar arrays, projected returns are one of the most attractive features for many of the people considering having solar panels installed. A professionally installed solar array can produce free electricity for over 25 years if properly maintained. Over that time span, the savings that a home will experience are almost always equal to the amount of money that would have otherwise been spent on electricity.
Increasing Returns: If you look at the historical trends of electricity rates in the United States, trends suggest that electricity rates will increase by an average of three percent each year. Investing in a solar array means that you are taking proactive steps to avoid increased electricity rates. As prices rise, the return on investment for you solar array will only increase.

We Help Massachusetts Residents With Financing Options

The biggest limiting factor that we hear people discuss when it comes to investing a in a solar power system is the price. At RGS Energy, we understand that making a large investment is not always the easiest thing to do. For this reason, we help our customers start saving money instantly without requiring that they pay for the entire solar array up front by helping them find financial assistance through our trusted lenders. Through the use of financial assistance, you will experience instant savings through a lowered electricity bill, will have to pay little to no upfront costs, and, even better, will be allowed to take advantage of our budget friendly and flexible payment terms. We are certain that once you see how affordable our solar energy systems are, you will wonder why you waited so long to make the switch.
