What Happens to Old Solar Panels? (.PDF Download)

May 18, 2022
With a lifespan of 25-30 years, used solar panels are becoming an e-waste issue in the U.S. as new residential and commercial installations increase.

The benefits of using solar energy are many: It’s cheaper than any other form of energy production, it taps into one of the universe’s renewable energy sources, and many residential and commercial users get some or all of their investment back in the form of tax credits and other incentives.

As a whole, renewable energies like solar power generate no greenhouse gas emissions (GHGs) from fossil fuels, reduce certain types of air pollution, diversify our energy supply, lessen our dependence on imported fuels, and help create new jobs and other positive economic impacts.
