Return Policy

Regularly stocked, non-special-ordered, and non-custom-built items may be returned to Real Goods within 30 days from the date of purchase.

Special-order items and items returned after 30 days will be accepted at Real Goods' discretion and assessed a 15% - 30% restocking fee if they are accepted. Please call 800-919-2400 before attempting to return these items.

Please use FedEx, UPS, or USPS, with tracking, for returns.

Custom-built items (such as Real Goods Solar PV Kits) are non-returnable.

All freight and shipping charges are non-refundable.

Damaged Shipments

Damage claims not noted on the shipping delivery receipt cannot be made with Real Goods. It is your responsibility to check your shipment. Your signature on a shipping receipt is a legal release of claim for damage unless noted at the time of receipt.
