RGS Energy has won more than 80 contracts to deploy rooftop solar power systems on residential homes and small businesses in North Smithfield, Rhode Island. The projects represent more than 600kW of solar power. The company expects to complete the installations by July 2015.
The contracts were generated from Solarize Rhode Island. The program was designed to encourage the adoption of residential and commercial solar systems through a coordinated education, marketing and outreach effort, combined with a tiered pricing structure that provides increased savings to homeowners and businesses as more people go solar.
Dennis Lacey, CEO of RGS Energy, commented: "We've had a number of successful Solarize programs across the Northeast and completion of this latest program further expands our presence in the region. Given the increasing popularity of Solarize programs across the Northeast, we plan to continue to bid for more Solarize programs."
