Leading the Solar Charge

Welcome to the heart of solar innovation and ethics. The Residential Solar Association (RSA) is more than just an organization; it’s a movement dedicated to transforming the residential solar industry. Established in 2022, RSA has quickly become a pivotal force in advocating for sustainable, ethical solar practices.

“The RSA stands firmly on four robust pillars: lending, sales, installations, and technology. Our primary mission is to elevate the residential solar industry by establishing accreditation standards that serve as essential gatekeepers, ensuring that organizations committed to ethical practices thrive”.
