Solar Panel Recycling

All recycling faces the same problem - how do we recover usable material, and what do we do with it once it has been recovered? Is there a market for it? Who wants it? And once we’ve figured that out, are there enough facilities around to scale these processes and make them financially viable?

As we look ahead to a decade of repowering America with renewable energy, its critical that we get ahead of the challenge of recycling solar panels before they hit a landfill. In this week's episode, we talk to SunCommon's Warehouse Lead Neil Henderson, about the emerging space of recycling solar panels, and how he and his colleagues on our B-Team are trying to keep us ahead of the curve.
