What is the latest on Solar Panels being recycled?
Australia is starting to show promising signs of solar panel recycling by turning old solar panels into reusable materials, often described as upcycling.
In September 2020 Ojas Group won a grant for 3 million dollars from the federal government to set up plants around the country. 𝐎𝐣𝐚𝐬 𝐆𝐫𝐨𝐮𝐩 𝐰𝐢𝐥𝐥 𝐛𝐞 𝐚𝐛𝐥𝐞 𝐭𝐨 ‘𝐮𝐩𝐜𝐲𝐜𝐥𝐞’ 𝟗𝟕% 𝐨𝐟 𝐭𝐡𝐞 𝐩𝐚𝐧𝐞𝐥𝐬 𝐰𝐡𝐢𝐜𝐡 𝐢𝐬 𝐚 𝐰𝐢𝐧 𝐟𝐨𝐫 𝐫𝐞𝐜𝐲𝐜𝐥𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐚𝐧𝐝 𝐟𝐨𝐫 𝐣𝐨𝐛𝐬.
The Roof Top Solar Market is BOOMING in Australia, and we’re pleased to see interest in what happens to the panels at the end of their lifecycle.
Recycling the panels is not only good for the environment, but can also be profitable for business owners – this flows to creating more jobs.
At NuWay Solar we find that we are removing old systems at a rate of 1 in every 12 installations, so recycling is a very important topic for us.
Old systems may have been damaged or are not serving the owner with enough power. Replacing the old system is more economical that repairing it, because technology is improving very rapidly.
Nuway Solar will always do our best to recycle or upcycle as we want the best outcomes both for our customers and for our world.
