Clovis, CA (PRWEB) August 01, 2012
Starting next week, the Real Goods Solar location in Sierra Vista Mall will expand its offerings to provide local shoppers with information and earth-friendly products promoting an eco-friendly lifestyle.
Real Goods Solar established a presence at Sierra Vista Mall in May 2012 and has since been providing shoppers with key information about going solar. Now, consumers will also be able to purchase eco-friendly products, including a toy race car made from recycled milk containers, solar-powered flashlights and cell phone chargers, survival kits, organic clothing, books and more. The unique store is the only one of its kind in the Fresno area.
Real Goods Solar will celebrate the store’s grand opening at 4:30 p.m. on Thursday, Aug. 9th with local business leaders, including representatives from the Greater Fresno Area Chamber of Commerce and the Clovis Chamber of Commerce.
PUTTING THE ‘GOODS’ IN REAL GOODS SOLAR
John Schaeffer, founder of Real Goods Solar and the Solar Living Center in Hopland, CA, started his business by selling eco-friendly products through his “Real Goods Trading Company” in 1972. When he sold the first solar panel ever sold in the United States in 1978, it made sense to name his solar part of the business Real Goods Solar. Today Real Goods Solar, Inc. is a publically-traded company with a national footprint of more than 12,000 residential and commercial solar energy systems totaling 83 megawatts installed.
“Real Goods Solar is 100 percent interested in helping people save money on their electric bills, but we’re also here to educate people on how to live a sustainable lifestyle. The products that we are making available at our store in Sierra Vista Mall will offer customers eco-friendly alternatives they otherwise may have never known about,” said Tom Cotter, Regional Sales Manager at Real Goods Solar.
