Could not have been easier to work with. Installers were knowledgeable pleasant answer questions. They worked hard for us in trying to get the specific panels that we wanted and in a timely fashion very pleased.

This company has been great. After an initial delay in the solar panel process, things moves swiftly and we wish we had made the decision to go solar years before. The company is easy to work with and the process is smooth.

I wish i didn't have to be on the grid during power outages. A battery backup would be great for when power is out and be on the grid the rest of the time

Trying to get service is difficult. The initial installation caused major roof leaks. The roof has been replaced by your company. Roof tiles don't match and roof looks terrible.

One of the very best investments I have made for our home. We have almost completely earned back what we invested only 3 years ago. The bonus is that I feel we are doing our part to protect our world. Als I needed to contact RGS regarding our system internet reporting and once again they were superior. They listened helped me to try to fix it myself and when that didn't work they set up an appointment right away. Within weeks everything is back on track without losing any solar power. This is the best solar company around.

RGS was awesome to work with. Being a little older, we really needed to think if we wanted to do this at our age. We thought it was worth it. There were energy loans available and also other tax incentives that really made it worth our while. The product, Tom, Carl and the crew were awesome. It took us a little longer to get ours installed because our electric company is very green and was able to write their plan or something for legislature or public service board. Once Washington Electric's plan was in place, RGS was right there, got us up and running. There customer service is outstanding and a couple of years later, they are still there answering any questions I may have. They also keep me posted on what is happening in the legislature in case there is meetings I wish to attend to speak in favor of solar and alternative energy sources. I love the savings on energy and fuel, (our heat pump that also runs with our solar) and that maybe we are making a difference. I rate then 110%.

Great experience overall. Sales rep presented the material in a very clear way and was able to explain every part of the process to us. He also did not come across as pushing for a sale and it was easy to talk to him as a result. Install was incredibly quick and during the time frame they had estimated (about a 4 month lead time on install). Due to increased efficiency in our power usage (installed Central A/C to replace multiple old wall/window units, swapped out all bulbs for LEDs) we surpassed their projections of generating 80% of our own power and actually have run a surplus/credit on our electric bill for every month except for 2 in the past 2 1/2 years. Only minor issues I had were that the breakers they installed were tripping a few times in the early summer months which shut the panels off. As I wasn't monitoring the panels on a daily basis, it was 2 weeks before I realized that the breaker tripped and I wasn't generating any solar. Happened a couple more times before I reported it and RGS came back installed new breakers - have not had it happen again since they swapped out the breakers. Other minor issue was the explanation of the SRECs. My impression was that they came directly from our electric supplier. Reached out to sales rep for clarification and he relayed additional information we needed to set up the SREC sales through a 3rd party. The SREC information presented at time of sale/install, lacked the additional info regarding signing with a 3rd party that auctions/sells off our SRECs for us, but as soon as I reached out regarding that issue, it was immediately addressed. Great overall experience with RGS.
