Solar Installer Joins Centrosolar Community in Arizona
RDS Electric (RDS), in business for 29 years, has been actively designing and installing residential and commercial solar systems since 2007 and has developed a solid relationship with Centrosolar America, Inc. over the last 3 years. RDS entered the solar energy segment as a growth strategy.
We saw our regular business dropping off because of the economy. To offset that part of our business we looked at solar. Now solar is nearly 50% of our business and we dedicate an entire team to just solar residential projects,” says Jenny Dewey, VP of RDS Operations.
Robert Swier, RDS Electric’s President added, “When we realized the potential of this business we invested heavily in training our staff. Almost every week we have someone taking some training classes provided by suppliers and solar industry organizations.
While working with Brilliant Green Energy, a solar system integrator and installer in Arizona, RDS has found working with Centrosolar has helped them win projects by providing easy to install CentroPack® roof-mounted systems. In addition, Robert Swier, RDS President says that Centrosolar gets high points for having a warehouse locally, excellent technical staff, and very accessible sales support. Robert noted, “We like that Centrosolar has inventory right in the area. And your engineering support has been excellent. Whenever we have a technical question, your engineers are always available and respond quickly.”
