“We are thrilled to welcome Palmetto as one of our Founding Partners for this new industry initiative,” said Tim Trefren, Recheck co-founder and CEO. “Palmetto operates one of the largest partnership networks of solar sellers and installers across the country, with an unwavering commitment to high customer service. We look forward to collaboration in our shared goal of building long-term trust between consumers and solar energy providers.”

As a Founding Partner, Palmetto will be part of an ongoing Advisory Board and commits to driving the adoption of RecheckIDs within its platform and network of solar sales and installation partners. Other Recheck Solar Industry Registry Founding Partners include the Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA), Dividend Finance, Freedom Forever, GoodLeap, Mosaic, Sungage Financial, Sunlight Financial, and Sunrun.
