Quick Mount PV

Quick Mount PV was founded in 2006 to bring cost-effective, code-compliant, waterproof rooftop mounting systems to the solar industry. As much as possible, they use recycled content aluminum because it requires only 5% of the energy needed to produce aluminum from virgin sources and can be recycled indefinitely.  Stainless steel raw materials are used in their products when essential to quality and their average recycled content across all metals is 68%. Quick Mount PV is committed to integrating sustainable practices into the daily operations of their 90,000 square foot facility in Walnut Creek.  They are a Bay Area Certified Green Business and have replaced the floodlights in their parking lot with low-wattage LEDs and de-lamped light fixtures throughout the compound (saving $14,000 annually).  They optimized the HVAC schedules to conserve energy; started on-site composting; established a company garden; and implemented a comprehensive Environmental Management System.  The firm purchased a Tesla and Chevy Volt for business related travel and staff carpool or take public transportation to work.  In case they are missing any possible opportunity, Quick Mount management holds quarterly staff meetings to review their sustainability progress.
