DENVER, Oct. 26, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- RGS Energy (NASDAQ:RGSE), America’s original solar company since 1978, has been selected by Solarize North Haven, a community-based residential solar purchasing cooperative, to bring solar electricity to homes and businesses in North Haven, Connecticut.

Solarize North Haven is a community-supported buying program that offers discounted group pricing, town-wide education and outreach support, as well as high quality equipment at reduced pricing and flexible financing to significantly reduce the cost of solar for North Haven’s approximately 8,600 households. The campaign and sign-up period begins November 16, 2017 and will run through April 5, 2018.

“The Town of North Haven has endorsed the goals of Solarize Connecticut and we are pleased to once again be able to offer our residents interested in alternative energy solutions this option,” said Michael Freda, North Haven’s First Selectman. “Solar energy is good for the environment and can save homeowners money on their utility bills, and these upcoming workshops provide an opportunity for our residents to explore going solar.”

Thomas Champlin, RGS Energy’s director of East Coast sales, commented: “Our local employees at our facility in Bloomfield believe in strong customer service and the benefits of solar to our communities, where we work and live. I myself, and our entire east coast organization, are very pleased that our service performance continues to be recognized by local townships who select RGS Energy as the solarize provider of choice.”
