Solar Decommissioning: What’s Your Flavor?

There are plenty of options to consider when you are dealing with a solar decommissioning project and often companies do not have time to explore all available solutions. At Decom Solar, we welcome the opportunity to assess your project and explore these options so that you can get the best value for your project and do what is right for future generations. We offer turnkey solar decommissioning and cover everything from sourcing the right partners through deconstruction, with a clear understanding of your business objectives.


The worst option. This option, while it may cost less, is destructive to our planet and the harmful substances in solar equipment will eventually leech into our water table. If you are electing to go this route, Decom Solar is not the right fit for you, however, we can provide alternative solutions that are more valuable for your business.


Only in cases where equipment has no life left should recycling be considered. This option is expensive and, in most cases, can be avoided. If recycling is the only option for your equipment, we are partnered with certified solar recyclers throughout the country and we can source the most cost-effective solution for you.


Depending on the age and useful life left with your solar modules, refurbishment is a great option to consider for your decommissioning project. Often, solar modules still have value, and you can get paid for your used equipment. We work with refurbishing partners who are focused on keeping solar materials out of landfills and provide cost savings for your project.


If your solar equipment is in good condition, there are dozens of non-profits throughout the country who will happily take the modules as a charitable donation. Benefits of going this route include receiving a charitable donation certificate for your material, having a positive impact on local communities, and creating a marketable story for your company and the non-profits you work with.

Allow Decom Solar to handle all of the legwork and clearly present all options to your company so that you can make an informed decision and receive the most value for your equipment. By partnering with Decom Solar you can remain focused on your day-to-day while knowing that you are getting the best solution for your solar decommissioning project and our planet.
