our clients speak out

“Who wears a red shirt and helps Tel Hai Retirement Community save 317 tons of carbon emissions each year? The team from Richards Energy Group, Inc.! This project will cover all of the public areas on our campus and will involve (at a minimum) re-lamping 1,203 fixtures with more efficient bulbs, 11 new LED EXIT signs, and re-ballasting and re-lamping 1,473 additional fixtures.

For those of you who are interested in the annual environmental impact: when this project has been completed it will reduce carbon emissions by 317 tons each year. That is like taking 60 cars off the road and saving 38,487 gallons of gasoline.

Thank you Richards Energy Group, Inc. for partnering with us!”

-Tel Hai Retirement Community

“Thank you for the excellent service you have provided us for the short time we have been with Richards Energy Group. Our savings so far have been far more than expected. We certainly look forward for more savings through your recent energy and lighting audits, and the opportunity to purchase energy as economically as possible.”

-Conrad Peachey
Homewood Retirement Centers

“We consider ourselves to be quite knowledgeable in the retail food business however, when it comes to electricity usage and procurement, it becomes necessary to have a trusted partner like Richards Energy Group assisting us with conserving, buying, and auditing our electricity usage.”

-Jeffrey Good
Amelia’s Grocery Outlet

“We’re installing the new lights and they look fantastic.  The men are wondering if we’re going to issue company sunglasses…that’s how much brighter it is compared to the metal halide.  The men were in the habit of turning on the fluorescent at their workstations for additional lighting, even when they weren’t working there.  Now with the new lights, the workstation lighting can stay off until actually needed.”

-Ken Musser
Lancaster Level-Flo

“I’m very satisfied. All my questions were answered up front, the [lighting] upgrade did not impede our production, and intial energy savings look better than your conservative estimate. I would recommend Richards Energy Group without hesitation!”

-Larry Binkley
Lancaster Maid Cabinets

“It made a difference for the areas where the old lights weren’t reaching.  The lighting is more even throughout the warehouse.  It makes a big difference.  They look good and I know the guys at the warehouse are pleased with them.”

-Rebecca Ranck
Wenger’s Feed Mill

“We’re very pleased with our lighting retrofit project overall, and we are actually seeing a 18% overall reduction of our electric bill! So not only are we ‘going green’, but we’re saving money doing it!”

-Dave Fleischer
Phillips Office Solutions

“We were very pleased with the service and installation of the lighting retrofit and would recommend REG to others!”

-Ken Fry
Lititz Area Mennonite School

“I want to take this minute and thank you both for leading us through this process, from the original walk thru evaluation to the final rebate payment!! The long term benefits of reduced demand costs due to the retrofit, coupled with our longer term supply side contracts for electricity is obviously a win-win for us!! Could not have accomplished any of this without Richards Energy Group and a relationship that goes back some 8 or 9 years!

Thanks again!!”

-Skip Hill
Souderton Mennonite Homes

“What a difference the retrofit has made, everyone is very happy with the change.”

-Ryan Yorty
