OTCQX: RGSE NAHB Announces Finalists for Best of IBS Awards Winner Best Green Building Product – RGS Energy Finalist Best Energy Efficient Product – RGS Energy - nahb.org, Jan 28, 2019 RGS Energy Revives Dow’s Solar Roof, Claiming Better Efficiency & Lower Costs “RGS' sales strategy is notable for what the company chose not to do itself. It designs and assembles the tiles in the U.S., but sources the solar components from manufacturing partners.” “The arithmetic of savings for a new roof paired with solar tiles makes sense, in theory. RGS' job now is to prove it in the field. That's a tall order, based on the history of the market , but at least the field isn't very crowded .” - greentechmedia.com, Jan 25, 2019 Real Goods Solar Plows Ahead With Energy Plans “Real Goods Solar Inc. received a boost Wednesday on news the California Energy Commission approved the selling of its 3.0 solar shingle system in California, the nation's largest solar market” - thestreet.com, Jan 16, 2019 Powerhouse 3.0 Solar Shingles Head To The Roof “May the best shingle prevail.” - Cleantechnica.com, Dec 28, 2018 Tesla and RGS set for solar roof tile market share battle in US “Having two companies being public listed with two competing products in one country should make things more interesting and hopefully transparent. We could all soon be watching the birth of a new mainstream solar market or the trial and tribulations of a niche play .” - pvtech.org, Nov 9, 2018 16 Its not just us saying it
