We're still in the early stages of our solar project but everything seems to be going well. Had to have an additional site survey for more details and I still have questions about a tree that may have to be trimmed. Other companies offered to take on the added expenses ...

"Fast and efficient"

We received a quote right away. We had a lot of questions and our representative not only welcomed the questions, answered them completely with documents to identify all her answers. We had our first meeting with technical advisors and they were very helpful and informative. This company has been wonderful.

We had one of the bigger companies in for a quote. They were more interested in telling us what we needed instead of asking us what we wanted. When RGS came in the salesperson asked a few questions to get an idea of our interest and tailored the sales pitch ...
