Real Goods and altE (aka the Alternative Energy Store) are now one and the same Company. By shopping at Real Goods you will benefit from our 41 years of experience and many decades of technical expertise from our solar technicians. At the same time you’ll benefit from altE’s 20+ years of experience on the East Coast providing solar for a nationwide audience of off-grid and grid-tied customers. Together we are now one of the nation’s largest Companies specializing in renewable energy and off-grid solar living, now serving both coasts and every nook and cranny in between. Our mutual visions and missions are to continue to free the world from fossil fuels using clean renewable energy to mitigate climate change and enhance our independent lifestyles.
You’ll notice that our new website focuses on our expertise of solar and off-grid hardware. If you’re accustomed to ordering Green Products from the Real Goods website (Olive Oil, Sun Ovens, small consumer solar device chargers, wooden clothes drying racks, solar mosquito guards, and much more) those items can still be found at our favorite non-profit’s website, the Solar Living Institute, whose mission is to provide inspirational environmental education. Click on solarliving.org/online-store to order any of their fine environmental products.
We are very excited about this brand new merger of Real Goods and altE and please feel free to call us if you have suggestions or ideas on how we can serve you better.
As always we very much appreciate your loyalty and patronage over the years!
For the Earth,
John Schaeffer (Founder & Former President – Real Goods) and Sascha Deri (Co-Founder & CEO of altE)
