Real Goods will provide the equipment for each solar installation including the PV modules, power inverter, racking, balance of systems components, and storage batteries for off-grid independent systems. Quattro will be providing administrative services including design, building permit and utility submissions, inspections, and tax credit information for the homeowner or small business.

Real Goods owner and founder, John Schaeffer, commented: “We’re very excited to be working with Quattro Solar to be able to close the loop with our customers by offering turn key solar systems. For years we’ve specialized in independent off-grid systems and now we can serve ALL of our grid tied residential customers and small businesses with a complete solar package.” David Quattro, President and founder of Quattro Solar added: “It’s a long standing dream of ours to be working with Real Goods as their solar installation arm.
