Every REC Solar project is designed and built by industry experts who live by our safety and quality culture. We ensure our people go home safe each day and that the systems that we build have the quality necessary to last for the designed system life. Whether we are building on a rooftop in a dense urban area, or a ground mount in a remote agriculture field, our safety and quality standards do not waiver. We live by these values for our own integrity and to ensure that our systems are generating the greatest value possible for our customers.

Our Approach to Safety & Quality

We enable each member of our construction teams to be their own safety and quality champions by ensuring that safety and quality are part of our cultural and way of operating. REC Solar has a dedicated safety and quality department that staffs safety and quality specialists who oversee our environmental, safety, health and quality policies and programs. They train, inspect and coach throughout construction, as well as provide final scored audits to ensure that the project teams are continuously focused on safety and quality throughout and up to system hand-off to the customer.
