Happy 20th Birthday, REC Solar! Today we celebrate the hundreds of customers across the United States who have been empowered in the last 20 years to rethink their energy strategy, reduce energy expenses and transform how they do business. We’re humbled and thrilled to have been a part of their journey and we are excited for the next 20 years.
REC Solar was founded in 1997 by a duo of dreamers from Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo, a leading university within the California State University program. REC Solar believes that the college students of today are the renewable energy advocates and innovators of tomorrow. In order to promote discussion about the importance of renewable energy and its role in providing a sustainable future, REC Solar is offering a $1,500 Sustainability Scholarship this fall to one student in the California State University (CSU) school system.
