Institute for Building Technology and Safety (IBTS), a recognized expert in solar PV quality assurance, announced the release of a case study focusing on its customer’s success in developing a full-cycle quality assurance management process. Sunrun, a leading residential solar company and IBTS’ customer is focused on providing consistent quality of its home solar service to residential customers long term, as well as mitigating risks. Keeping costs low for customers over the lifetime of their system is a priority. The company ensures that their installation quality guidelines are met by partnering with IBTS and using their solar quality assurance.
IBTS worked with Sunrun to enhance its quality management process to deliver a quality product and customer experience. This is vital to Sunrun’s success, as residential solar PV customers rely on their solar company to provide a quality system that will last for up to 20 years.
