The first-of-its-kind reusable, recyclable and collapsible pallet is specifically designed for solar modules. PVpallet reduces packaging waste and protects the physical integrity of modules during transport and staging, resulting in fewer broken modules.

“As a leading distributor of solar and energy storage components, it’s our job to bring innovative products like PVpallet to installers at all levels in the value chain,” said David Dunlap, VP of product strategy with BayWa re Solar Systems. “BayWa re achieved carbon-neutral operations in 2018 and we have been supplied with 100% renewable energy since 2020. We also aim to go beyond carbon and to address a wide range of sustainability aspects for society, the economy and the environment. Our partnership with PVpallet furthers our commitment to sustainability across the solar industry.”

PVpallets are made of HDPE plastic with a steel-reinforced base and plastic sidewalls to protect modules in transit. The exterior walls are adjustable to fit various module sizes.

Additionally, the walls collapse and pallets stack for return shipping and to maximize warehouse space. BayWa re is exploring options to use the modular pallets in a closed-loop transport arrangement, such as lease agreements for a fleet of pallets or a deposit model.

“Like BayWa re, 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. “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.”
