PVpallet, a company that manufactures sustainable shipping options for solar modules, has partnered with leading renewables developer, services and systems provider BayWa r.e to distribute its reusable solar module shipping solution.
PVpallet has developed a sustainable shipping option for solar modules to replace traditional wood pallets. The reusable pallets are made from recycled plastic and they reduce wood waste and module breakage.
The flagship product PVpallet Series X is now available through BayWa r.e.’s subsidiary BayWa r.e. Solar Systems LLC. It is viewed as the first-of-its-kind reusable, recyclable and collapsible pallet that is specifically designed for solar modules.
“Like BayWa r.e., sustainability drives everything we do, and this partnership will help reduce waste in the solar industry,” said Philip Schwarz, co-founder and CEO of PVpallet in a news release. “Our reusable pallets are made in the heartland of America with recycled materials and are fully recyclable at the end of the pallet’s usable life. PVpallet is ideal for PV module storage, transportation and staging at job sites, or any repowering or repair projects where the original module manufacturer’s packaging is no longer available.”
