RGS Energy Offers Several Ways to Save on the Cost of Electricity
Use Solar Power as a Service
A solar lease or service agreement
gives you a lower electric rate from day one, without the responsibility of owning and maintaining a system – and with no debt or up-front costs.*
Purchase a Solar System
A system purchase gives you the best long-term savings. You’ll own the solar panels, the power they produce, and their rebates and incentives
– the ultimate in energy independence.
Special Offer in CA and NY
The CleanEnergy Plan
™ provides you a lower electric rate from day one with a production guarantee, included maintenance, and a 20-year service promise.
|Solar Energy vs Fossil Fuels ||Advantage |
Fossil fuels must be located, excavated and transported before they can be used. These processes are invasive and detrimental to the land through side effects such as erosion and ecological and geologic instability. Then the deposit or well is depleted. Energy from the sun is infinite and free. It can be harnessed and turned into power anywhere a solar panel can be mounted.
Fossil fuels must be burned to produce electricity. Burning them creates unwanted byproducts that can create air and water pollution and release huge amounts of greenhouse gasses into the atmosphere. When in use, solar panels produce power without waste or emissions, and do so through a natural process called photovoltaics.
Cost of Consumer Electricity
Whether you buy a system and pay it back with electricity savings or you pay a low, fixed rate for your power through a solar PPA, you’ll hit the point where your solar panels have paid for themselves. After that, it’s real savings for your bottom line, and with utility rates climbing regularly, each year you’ll save more with solar than the year before.
The Human Element
Fossil fuel deposits are scattered and finite. Their economic worth and uncertainty are enough to cause disagreements that can lead to labor strikes, price volatility, and even war. Solar energy is available nearly everywhere, and will be for another 5 billion years.
More than 35 years ago, RGS Energy – a Real Goods Solar Company – sold some of the very first solar panels to the public out of a small general store in Northern California. Since then, we’ve installed over 25,000 solar energy systems for homes, businesses, schools, government facilities, and utilities across the country, totaling more than 260 megawatts of clean energy.
