DENVER, Dec. 03, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- RGS Energy (OTCQX: RGSE), the exclusive worldwide manufacturer of the visually stunning POWERHOUSE™ Solar Shingle System, will be featured on the award-winning home improvement television program, Designing Spaces® airing on Lifetime.

The show will air on December 4 and December 27 at 7:30 a.m. in both Eastern and Pacific time zones. In the show, RGS Energy helps the Ortiz family transform their home in Florida into a fully solar home using POWERHOUSE™ 3.0 solar shingles combined with an energy storage system.

The POWERHOUSE™ solar shingles’ low profile was designed to blend in with the appearance of asphalt roofs, making the solar array less conspicuous and more visually appealing compared to traditional rack-n-mount solar panels.

“The most exciting thing about POWERHOUSE™ is that it represents an entirely new approach to solar,” said Adam Akers, RGS Energy’s product specialist. “It’s a beautiful new option at a great price for homeowners, especially compared to those bulky panels that have kept people away from going green with solar. It actually gives the house a whole different style in the sense of curb appeal and efficiency.”

The Ortiz family was concerned about climate change and electrical outages, and wanted to be less reliant on utility companies. “The goal is to not have a bill and possibly get a check from the power company,” said George Ortiz in his interview during the POWERHOUSE™ installation. “That’s the whole net metering aspect of it; if we produce more, we can make a buck. We take but we also give back to the grid, so everyone wins.”

RGS Energy CEO, Dennis Lacey, commented: “We enjoyed working with the team at Designing Spaces to not only educate homeowners of the benefits of going solar, but make them aware they no longer have to settle for subpar aesthetics. We believe that through enhanced nationwide brand awareness such as this, we will continue to grow the demand for our next generation POWERHOUSE™ solar shingle product.”
