“Being part of the Quick Mount PV team is exciting,” said Spies. “The company’s passion for solar and their dedication to setting high standards in product quality and industry education mirror my own. It’s wonderful to be working with an industry leader like Quick Mount PV that works hard to further the cause of ‘doing solar right’.”
