Real Goods Solar To Host 'Flip The Switch' Ceremony For Newly Completed Solar Farm In Vermont On Tuesday, November 19, 2013

LOUISVILLE, Colo., Nov. 11, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- RGS Energy, the commercial and utility division of Real Goods Solar, Inc. (Nasdaq:RSOL), and St. Albans Solar Partners, LLC, will host a "Flip the Switch" ceremony at the recently completed 2.2 megawatt solar farm in St. Albans, Vermont on Tuesday, November 19, 2013 at 10:00 a.m. Eastern time. The event is by invitation only.

RGS Energy General Manager Tim Seamans, as well as other senior management, will attend the event.

The solar farm was completed last month ahead of schedule as recently announced. It is expected to generate enough energy to power more than 400 homes. 100% of the solar energy produced will be purchased through a feed-in tariff under the Standard Offer Program of Vermont's Sustainably Priced Energy Development (SPEED) Program. The program was created by legislation in 2005 to promote renewable energy development in the state in order to reach the state's renewable energy goal of 20% renewable energy by 2017.

The fixed array ground mount solar system will deliver environmental benefits to the region, eliminating more than 123 million pounds of annual carbon dioxide emissions over 25 years or the equivalent to planting more than 1.4 million trees (per EPA-based data).

"As one of the largest solar farms in Vermont, our 'Flip the Switch' event will celebrate providing 100% clean renewable solar energy to its residents," said Seamans. "Thanks in part to the state's renewable energy development program, the region holds strong potential for generating solar farm projects."

For more information about the project or the Flip the Switch ceremony, please contact Kezia Dos Santos at (203) 803-8781 or email.
