We offer our customer the option to use eco-certified lumber for our solar collector racks, where applicable.  Eco-certified lumber is wood that has been grown, harvested, and processed according to sustainable environmental standards. Reclaimed lumber: A local miller makes high quality cedar boards from used telephone poles. We use these boards to make beautiful, durable racks that are designed to withstand years of weathering. Cedar has further environmental benefits: it has a natural preservative so it doesn't need to be pressure-treated, painted, or stained. And it smells good, too!In the office
