Committed today for a better tomorrow

Serious about Sustainability

With the urgent need to combat climate change, transitioning to renewable energy sources like solar power is crucial. But did you know? We need over 1 billion solar panels annually for a decade to meet the 1.5°C target. The production of solar panels is resource-intensive and generates end-of-life waste. As the solar industry grows, we need to be more sustainable too. We must innovate for higher efficiency, longevity, and sustainable manufacturing to ensure solar panels don’t morph from today’s solution to tomorrow’s problem.

    Considering solar? Ensure your choice benefits both you and the planet. How and where your solar panels were produced matters. Discover true sustainability in solar manufacturing.
Choose solar panels more responsibly

For nearly 30 years, REC has sought to combine high-efficiency innovations with sustainable manufacturing and equitable work practices. We at REC want to clear the clouds for you to choose the most sustainable solar panel and transparently inform you how we manufacture our products and how we contribute as a global long-standing company to a better future for our next generations. Explore our resources below to learn why looking beyond power and price is crucial in your solar journey, and discover the key criteria for making a significant positive impact.
