BMW & Real Goods Solar Team Up: 35% off Solar for Electronauts

May 8th, 2012 by  


BMW and Real Goods Solar are the latest to team up and offer an EV-solar tag team. BMW announced yesterday that it and Real Goods Solar are offering BMW ActiveE drivers (aka Electronauts) a solar deal that’s hard to pass up — approximately 35% off a solar installation contract with Real Goods Solar (RGS).

“Lease and purchase options will be available to suit the residential energy and charging needs for BMW’s EV drivers. Real Goods Solar will provide a premium offer to design, install and monitor a turn-key solar solution to all ActiveE customers in California, New Jersey, Massachusetts, Connecticut and New York,” BMW writes.

“Real Goods Power Savings Plans reduce initial investment costs to a minimum and include premium industry products, including modules manufactured in America, and a proprietary online monitoring system, which includes the ability to track the performance of their solar system on the web or through an iPhone application.”

Electronauts can call (855) RGS-EVPV or go to to schedule a solar evaluation.
