RGS Energy's Sunetric Deploys PV System for Coral Creek Golf Course, First Public Golf Course to 'Go Solar' on the Island of O'ahu

Roof, Ground and Carport Mounted Solar Systems to Offset 60% of Utility Power

LOUISVILLE, Colo. and KAILUA, Hawaii, July 8, 2014 --

Sunetric, a wholly-owned subsidiary of RGS Energy (Nasdaq:RGSE), has
completed a multiple solar system project totaling 324.6 kilowatts (kW) for
Coral Creek Golf Course in Ewa Beach, Hawaii. Coral Creek is the first
public golf course on O'ahu to 'go solar.'

The facilities at Coral Creek are now powered by three photovoltaic
(PV) systems: a 108 kW roof-mounted system on the maintenance building, a
108 kW ground-mounted trellis system at the irrigation wells, and a
108 kW carport structure at the driving range.

The PV systems are expected to produce more than 44,557 kilowatt hours
(kWh) monthly and offset 60% of the facility's utility-sourced energy
consumption, saving the golf course approximately $5,000 a month. In
addition to providing less costly electrical power, the custom-designed
carport structure provides golfers at the driving range shade from the sun
and cover from any rain showers.

"We take pride in our status as one of Hawaii's premier golf courses,"
said Kyun Kim, Coral Creek's general manager. "We focus on the customer's
experience and strive to keep our facilities always immaculate. By going
solar with Sunetric, we can sustain our high level of service and while
remaining a profitable business."

Aaron Kirk, Sunetric's president, commented: "Sunetric provides businesses
like Coral Creek Golf Course the best available solar solutions that can
substantially reduce the higher cost of electricity in Hawaii. As the first
public golf course to go solar on O'ahu, Coral Creek is a perfect example of
how more businesses on the islands are adopting solar to reduce energy costs
and decrease Hawaii's oil dependency."
