Reducing Our Impact Throughout Our Business

In all stages of our business we strive to minimize our impact on the environment.

Supply Chain Selection

Materials used in most projects come from suppliers that meet our stringent sustainability and quality criteria. They are:

  • Recyclable
  • Rated by independet parties for sustainability efforts
  • Built with sustainable manufacturing processes (reduced waste, water use and raw material consumption)

During Construction

When building projects, we leverage:

  • Onsite recycling
  • Vehicle usage restrictions to reduce idling, etc. No import/no export abilities
  • Environmental impact assessments (where needed)
  • Storm water pollution prevention program

Corporate Office Policies

Policies in our offices include:

  • Recycling
  • Sustainable light fixtures and “turn them off” policy
  • Hybrid vehicles for sales and project personnel
  • Refillable water stations
  • Green cleaning

REC Solar Supported Causes

We do our best to give back to the communities we live in, and the communities our customers are based in. Examples include:
LOW INCOME ENERGY

We participate in solar installations for low income San Luis Obispo County families through Grid Alternatives, because we think energy choice should be available to everyone.

COMMITMENT TO A
CLEANER ENVIRONMENT

Our offices are located in beautiful locations, and we are committed to keeping them that way. Our employees regularly participate in clean ups at local parks, beaches, and other recreational areas.

YOUTH EDUCATION

We prioritize youth education by offering support for onsite programs and curriculum, like this Earth Day kids book.

PAID TIME OFF FOR CAUSES

We empower our employees to help others by giving them paid time off to participate in volunteer opportunities in our communities.

DEVELOPMENT & TRAINING

Curriculum development and training on renewable energy topics for schools and public sector customers is available.

SUPPORTING CUSTOMER
CAUSES

We volunteer with and sponsor causes our customers care about, like Tour de Fresh.
