Decom Solar Collaborates with SOLARCYCLE for Sustainable Recycling of End-Of-Life Solar Modules for PowerFlex and Target

Los Angeles, CA (May 30, 2023) – Decom Solar, LLC, an industry leader in solar decommissioning services, has successfully completed the decommissioning of a 360-kW rooftop solar array in Los Angeles, California for Target Corporation, a general merchandise retailer with stores in all 50 U.S. states, and PowerFlex, a national provider of onsite sustainable energy solutions who is installing a new solar project at the location. The previous system consisted of legacy Shell Powerlight modules, Xantrax inverters, and an integrated PowerGuard flat racking solution. The entire project, including the removal of all system equipment, was completed within three weeks.

Stephen Burns, Co-Founder of Decom Solar says, “PowerFlex continues to demonstrate its commitment to sustainability, and this is one of many projects we have worked on together to decommission projects safely and responsibly. This is an important step in reducing our environmental impact and creating a more sustainable future for all.”

PowerFlex, who managed the decommissioning project, will be adding a new state-of-the-art system later this year. “We are thrilled to have partnered with Decom Solar on this project. This collaboration brings together our collective expertise and shared commitment to environmental responsibility, allowing us to lead by example in the solar industry. We look forward to many more successful projects and a long-lasting partnership,” said Lucie Dupas, Chief Delivery Officer at PowerFlex.

Decom Solar proudly teamed up with SOLARCYCLE, a tech-driven recycling company focused on producing sustainable and domestic materials at scale for the solar industry. Jesse Simons, Chief Commercial Officer of SOLARCYCLE said, “Decom Solar’s commitment to a greener future compliments SOLARCYCLE’S mission of making solar even more sustainable. Commercial stores not only hold huge potential to generate renewable energy, but they can also help our country build a solar circular economy through recycling commitments. We look forward to future projects with Decom’s team and partners.” All modules from the project have been transported to SOLARCYCLE’s advanced recycling facility in Odessa, Texas, where the panels are processed, recycled, and reintegrated into the supply chain.

To further their commitment to the planet, Decom Solar partnered with One Tree Planted, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit dedicated to global reforestation. For this project, Decom Solar donated 4,795 trees to be planted on behalf of PowerFlex and Target.
