CAPE CORAL, FL (November 18, 2022) – Decom Solar, LLC, a leader in solar decommissioning services, has mobilized in Cape Coral, Florida to support a big box retail client with their Hurricane Ian clean-up efforts.
A sizable portion of a two-year old 889.2 kW system and roof was damaged by the Category 4 storm. Decom Solar is testing all equipment to determine what can be reused and what must be properly recycled. All equipment in working condition will then be removed and stored to allow for the repair work to take place. All damaged modules will be recycled with a SEIA certified recycler and all damaged racking, inverters, and balance-of-system equipment will be processed through local recyclers.
“When people read about solar decommissioning, they often assume that the equipment is being removed and thrown out. We are focused on making sure that all working equipment remains in operation. We are committed to keeping solar modules out of landfills, regardless of the reason they need to be removed,” said Stephen Burns, Co-Founder of Decom Solar.
By keeping this working equipment in operation, it is estimated to offset 1,100,070 pounds of coal burned, enough to power 125 homes per year or preserve 6.7 acres of U.S. forests in one year. To further their commitment to the planet, Decom Solar is partnered with One Tree Planted, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit dedicated to global reforestation. For this project, Decom Solar will donate 2,340 trees to be planted on their client’s behalf.
