Why Should You Choose RGS Energy in Rhode Island?

Making the switch to solar energy is a decision that should not be made lightly. Taking the time to make sure that you choose a solar panel installation company that has a proven track record of excellence is one of the most important steps in the entire process and, at RGS Energy, we we want to make sure you go with a company that has your best interests in mind. Solar installations are about more than putting some panels on top of a roof and calling it a day. Solar panels must be installed properly and optimized to take as much advantage of the sunlight that hits your home as possible. Lastly, the panels must be professionally wired into your home’s existing electrical system to ensure that as much power as possible is making it from the solar panels to your home safely. Since 1978, we have helped thousands of homeowners make the switch to solar energy and, if given the chance, we are certain that once you experience the level of experience, professionalism, and passion we put into each and every one of our installations, you will see what has made us one of the most successful solar companies in America.

RGS Energy is a Company That You Can Trust

When you make the choice to use us as your solar panel installer, you are choosing a company that has the knowledge, tools, and experience necessary to provide a fast, professional solar installation. Through the combined efforts of our amazing technicians, experienced researchers, and dedicated management team, we are able to handle any and all solar installation situations. Over the past decade, multiple solar installation companies have popped up across the United States. While we are sure that some of these companies are able to provide services that are almost comparable to ours, we feel we still have the most experience. We have been helping people make the switch to solar energy since 1978, well before solar energy became the popular source of energy that it is today. We are not a company that decided to get into solar installations once it became popular, we are a company that decided to provide solar installations because it is, in our opinion, the energy revolution that this country needs in order to meet the energy demands of future generations. When you choose us as your Rhode Island solar panel installation provider, you are choosing the best in the business.

Why Is Solar Energy Good For Rhode Island?

When you make the switch to solar energy, you are making a decision that is going to provide multiple benefits to not only yourself but to your community as well. Some of the benefits of using solar energy include:

  • Reduced Carbon Footprint: Historically, energy production has been a messy affair. Between coal fired power plants, natural gas, and nuclear energy, humanity has sacrificed a lot in order to be able to meet the energy demands of a growing population. By making the switch to solar energy, people are able to reduce the amount of greenhouse gasses that are released into the atmosphere and help to slow the effects of global warming.
  • Save Money: As Rhode Island residents are probably well aware of by this point, electricity is not cheap. The northeast United states has some of the highest energy rates in the country and, unfortunately, these rates are only projected to rise. It is estimated that the average Rhode Island home saves $19,000 over the life of a solar array and, with fluctuating electricity prices, this amount is likely to be more.
  • Start Saving Instantly: By taking advantage of the many financing options and tax credits that are available to Rhode Island homeowners, you can start saving money instantly. When you finance your solar panels, your monthly electricity bill is replaced with a loan payment. This loan payment is often less money than your monthly electricity bill and, even better, it will not rise as a result of fluctuating electricity rates.

Professional Installation is Key to an Effective Solar Panel Array

In an age where do-it-yourself videos can be found for nearly any activity, the average person may be under the impression that installing solar panels is a job that can be done quickly, with little to no training required by the person placing the panels. While it is true that great advancements have been made in the design of solar panels, they still require a professional installation in order to be properly optimized to a particular home. Where other companies will sell solar panels to individuals and allow them to place them on their home themselves, RGS Energy takes the time to install your solar panels in order to make sure that you are getting the maximum amount of value out of your solar array investment. To effectively harvest solar energy in Rhode Island, you need a company that is going to take the time to professionally install your panels, make sure they are aligned for maximum energy absorption, and are properly wired into the electrical grid of your home. To learn more about our solar installation process, contact us today at 877-747-4338.


Solar Maintenance and Repair Services Provided by RGS Energy

Like any piece of machinery, solar panels require maintenance and repairs in order to make sure that they are functioning properly. When you choose RGS Energy as your solar panel company in Rhode Island, you are also choosing a company that will handle any and all repairs and maintenance work as it relates to your solar array. By making sure that your solar array is as well maintained as possible and that any repairs that need to be completed are done in a fast, professional way, we feel that we are better able to serve our customers and help them get the most out of their solar array. Maintenance and repair is never an issue with RGS Energy, and we are dedicated to making sure that your solar panels are as healthy as possible.



Our Passion Sets Us Apart

With all of the solar energy options available to the average person these days, it can be difficult for individuals to dilute the truly remarkable companies from the companies that are just in this business to make a quick buck. Choosing a solar energy provider is about more than choosing a company that is able to complete the work, it is about choosing a company that cares. At RGS Energy, we have been caring since 1978 and, in our opinion, these three decades of passion set us apart from the competition in a way that is hard to accurately describe. We don’t just install solar panels because we make money doing it, we install solar panels because we want to help as many people as possible reduce their dependency on municipal electricity services in order to benefit the state of Rhode Island and the country as a whole. Through our efforts and the efforts of our clients, we are dedicated to transforming the energy landscape of this country and usher in an era of clean energy and independence. If you would like to see what our current customers are saying about us, be sure to visit our testimonials page.


Financing Options to Meet Your Needs

One of the largest barriers that keeps people from taking advantage of our solar energy installation services is cost. It is no secret that a proper solar installation is not cheap, however, with some financial help nearly anyone can take advantage of the wonderful benefits that solar energy provides. When you choose RGS Energy as your solar installation company in Rhode Island, we will assist you in finding financial assistance in order to make your switch to solar as financially comfortable as possible. Through these programs, you can either choose to pay for the entirety of the solar array up front or, as is more common, choose to pay off the solar panels through a loan payment program.
