Behind a strong brand reputation and warranty, POWERHOUSE™ is transforming the residential market by making a solar shingle system installation as easy as installing an asphalt rooftop – all while maintaining the home’s attractiveness.
RGS Energy serves the need of homeowners who want to make the switch to solar but aren’t willing to accept the complexity and sub-optimal aesthetics currently offered by bulky, rack-mounted panel systems.
Subtly Integrates with Your Roofing:
If you’re getting a new roof soon, or you would like to integrate solar technology into your roof, you have another option than solar panels. POWERHOUSE™ 3.0 solar shingle systems give you the opportunity to utilize visually unobtrusive and affordable solar technology. Solar shingles easily integrate with your asphalt shingles, making it even easier for your preferred solar or roofing company to install.
Smart Home Capable:
POWERHOUSE™ solar shingles set your house up to be a smart home. A solar shingle system easily integrates with other renewable energy products, such as an EV charger or solar energy battery. With POWERHOUSE™ solar shingles, your house is one step closer to being a fully integrated smart home.
Solar shingles are considered both a roofing product and a solar product. POWERHOUSE™ solar shingles can withstand the same weathering traditional roofs endure. In fact, POWERHOUSE™ 3.0 solar shingles have a Class A fire rating and can withstand winds up to 200 mph.

Increases Your Home’s Overall Value:
Home builders are offering solar technology as part of the custom home building process. This means if you’re looking to build your own home, you can still take advantage of solar power.
Insurance Payouts are Applicable:
If you’ve unfortunately experienced covered roof damage, then insurance proceeds may cover the cost of your roof. This is a win-win for homeowners who need a new roof and would like to integrate solar technology as POWERHOUSE™ is the roof!
Federal Tax Credits & Incentives:
Solar shingles are eligible to be claimed under the federal tax credit incentive for solar roofing systems. When you have solar shingles installed, you can claim up to 30% in tax credits. Additionally, your local utility and state may offer renewable energy incentives for solar installations.
Virtually Maintenance Free:
Once your solar shingles are installed and implemented properly, you will find that it requires little-to-no maintenance to keep running properly. There’s very little that will keep your shingles from consistently producing power. POWERHOUSE™ solar shingles boast impressive durability and have passed fire, hail, and wind tests, so you can rest assured knowing your roof is working for you.
No Technological Obsolescence:
While technology is continually improving, you do not need to worry about your solar shingle system becoming obsolete. We have designed our POWERHOUSE™ solar shingle with a removable solar insert, in the event it needs to be upgraded. The solar insert can easily be replaced with the removal of just 6 screws.
The solar panels have been installed and are working great! The sales process was smooth, but we found out about a RI solar grant that created some delays before installation could happen. RGS was patient and supported us through the grant application process. The trade-off was getting approved for almost $5,000 to reduce the cost of our solar panels. Customer service is friendly and responsive.
