Toronto — September 22, 2020 /PVBuzz Media/ Solar X, a local Canadian residential and commercial solar contractor specializing in aesthetically pleasing and long-lasting system designs, launches its solar panel reuse + recycle program.
Solar panels typically have a guaranteed efficiency warranty of 25 years. In most cases, these panels can still remain fully functional for another 20 years but at a decreasing efficiency. Normal industry practices recommend that most system managers or homeowners upgrade their panels to the newer low cost, high-efficiency panels available in the market at that time.
Where solar panels like these go, at end-of-life, has always been a major concern for many Canadians who want to adopt a cleaner and more sustainable lifestyle by going solar. Solar X is solving this problem by becoming the first solar company in Canada to offer such an ambitious and much-needed program.
“Our solar panel reuse + recycle program is definitely a step in the right direction for the solar industry in Canada,” says Solar X CEO Bilal Jarmakani. “However, I’m more excited about our reuse program which aims to change the lives of people living in communities without electricity in developing parts of the world.”
Quality solar panels are hard to find in some parts of the world and can be excessively expensive for the local communities to procure for off-grid installations. In addition to recycling non-reusable solar panels, the Solar X solar panel reuse program collects end-of-life panels in Canada and ships them to industry partners in developing countries for use in local installations.
“Our goal is to create the largest sustainable impact with the least amount of waste while helping alleviate poverty, and improving the lifestyles of people in these communities through the use of electricity,” says Chris Ogilvie, Sales Director at Solar X.
