Can Solar Panels Be Recycled?


After 30 years, your solar panel will be nearing the end of its useful life and it will be time to replace it. What do you do with the old one? In the infographic below, Revolution Recycling, an electronics recycling and hard drive destruction company, shows how solar panels can be recycled.

Did you know that up to 96% of panel materials can be recycled into new solar panels at the end of life?

Now that’s sustainable.

PV Booster, the first commercial and industrial rooftop tracker, makes installation, removal, and re-installation of recycled panels easy for contractors. The useful life of PV Booster’s steel structure is over 50 years. When the time comes to replace your solar panel, the PV Booster system allows easy access for your crews to make the upgrade.

Have you looked at tracking on your next rooftop project? PV Booster ensures that you get every last drop from your solar panel, recycled or otherwise. With average yield improvements of 30% more energy per panel than modern fixed mounted projects, PV Booster helps you maximize your clients’ solar panel purchase and get the most value out of every module. This is driving rock-bottom levelized costs of energy (LCOE) for commercial and industrial clients.

Ready to upgrade your clients project? Systems over 15 years old or buildings in need of roof work could benefit from the unprecedented efficiency offered by PV Booster and high wattage modules. Reach out to PV Booster and Revolution Recycling to upgrade your project, keep these valuable materials out of landfills, and put them back to work.
