Our Commitment to Sustainability

Quick Mount PV strives to integrate our commitment to the environment and our community into the core of our business model. By producing quality, cost-effective mounts that will last for the life of the roof and solar array, we are helping to ensure the future of solar power.

Our Facility

Quick Mount PV is committed to integrating sustainable practices into the daily operations of our facility. We are continually improving our process for reducing our waste production, water usage and energy consumption. We are proud to be a Bay Area Certified Green Business through the California Green Business Program.

Reducing Greenhouse Gases by Recycling

At our facility we recycle scrap metal and cardboard. In addition, we've purchased bigger bins and reduced the number of material pick-ups a year to further reduce our carbon emissions.

Environmental Management System

Our environmental management system is a way to systematically identify and monitor all significant environmental impacts of our operations, and set goals to reduce them over time. All employees at Quick Mount PV are encouraged to identify ways to increase our resource efficiency, and are rewarded for suggestions that are successfully implemented.

Raw Materials

Quick Mount PV utilizes recycled content aluminum and stainless steel raw materials wherever feasible. Our average recycled content across all metals is 68%. We have made a commitment to prioritize recycled content in purchasing and increase our recycled content over time. Recycled aluminum requires only 5% of the energy required to produce aluminum from virgin sources, and can be recycled indefinitely.

Packaging

We are continually looking for ways to reduce the environmental impact of our product packaging. This is why we utilize 80% recycled cardboard for our boxes, and package them as efficiently as possible. We use biodegradable plant-based plastic bags for the hardware that comes in each box.
