Over our 41 years, we've found a few household goods we just love. Even though we're a renewable energy company first and foremost, we want to share our favorite household goods with the world!
"Knowledge is our most important product."
-John Schaeffer, President & Founder of Real Goods
That's our motto, and it's manifested in our library of off-grid and sustainable living books below. Even in the midst of the digital revolution, the traditional book still reigns supreme due to its durability, portability, and lack of prerequisites for use.
We have a collection of off-grid and sustainable living books and resources, but if you only have time to read one, experts agree it should be John Schaeffer's Solar Living Sourcebook. This "desert island book" covers all aspects of sustainable and responsible energy, shelter, and food for a truly amazing resource that's guaranteed to spark your curiosity in many of the other titles in our library of sustainable living books and resources below.
Proper garden tools are essential for living off the grid or on a homestead. Increase your garden's yield with garden tools like composters and greenhouse fans, and increase your enjoyment of gardening with specialized pest control solutions.
