About Us


 RLD Resources, LLC is a growing, wholly-owned minority business that specializes in energy products  and services. Founded in 1998, our President and CEO, Richard Dent, has assembled a team of experts that has the  ability to tackle the toughest energy and telecommunication issues. The objective of Richard’s team is to understand the client’s business and reduce the operating expenses in areas of telecommunications, electric supply, natural gas supply, energy consumption and fuel. Richard envisions a one-stop shop that will reduce your utility costs and improve the quality of your service. Richard knows the competition and his team is prepared to solve complex issues with technical and real-world experience.

RLD Resources is big enough to accommodate a great number of projects with a variety of scopes of work, yet small enough to avail each customer with undivided, detailed attention.

Our Mission: We strive to understand its clients’ business objectives in the areas of energy management, supply, demand and consumption.
