The Real Goods Solar Team
The dedicated Real Goods Solar team has always been what sets us apart from the competition and has allowed us 35 successful years in business and counting. Without their expertise in the world of solar power and their passion to help people discover and benefit from it, we wouldn’t have the national reputation that makes us proud to offer the products and services we do.
