RER Energy Group, LLC “RER”,  a leading turnkey solar provider founded in Pennsylvania  announced it is celebrating 10 years in business  dedicated to helping mid-sized commercial, industrial, municipal and non-profit organizations by designing, building and financing cost efficient and quality solar energy systems.

Today, RER Energy Group is a national leader in solar energy doing business in approximately 20 states and Mexico. As one of the few independent and self-funded firms of its size in the rapidly growing renewable marketplace, RER has achieved significant organic growth since its inception in 2009.
