DENVER, CO, August 26, 2019 – RGS Energy (OTCQX: RGSE), the exclusive worldwide manufacturer of the visually stunning POWERHOUSE™ Solar Shingle System, announced today that it is contemplating the benefits to its shareholders of conducting a Regulation A+ rights offering involving issuing a dividend of rights to purchase shares of dividend yielding preferred stock (“Preferred Shares”) to its shareholders as of a future record date under an offering statement on Form 1-A (the “Offering Statement”) which would be filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) for such purpose.
