Solar Farm Decommissioning for Utilities

The solar industry is still growing, and as it does, the need for large-scale PV equipment disposal is growing too. The process of solar panel decommissioning includes:

  • Decommissioning planning – including the stages of assessment, planning, and project closure
  • Deconstruction, removal and transport of any abandoned solar panels, racking, and other equipment
  • Complete solar panel recycling and equipment disposal
  • Value recovery on end-of-life equipment

With decades of experience in asset recovery and disposal for the solar industry, We Recycle Solar works with power companies during solar farm deconstruction, decommissioning and equipment removal projects to ensure environmental compliance and complete recycling of panels, inverters, and more.

With operations in four countries and the capability to process up to 100,000 pounds of solar equipment every day in each facility, the utility-scale solutions that We Recycle Solar provides are recycling and value recovery options that stand unequaled in the industry. We process:

  • Monocrystalline, polycrystalline, and assorted thin film PV cells
  • String inverters and microinverters
  • Batteries
  • Mounting systems
  • Other solar equipment

While some “recyclers” will landfill damaged and end-of-life equipment, or attempt to refurbish and resell PV panels anywhere they can, We Recycle Solar works to harvest parts, components, and other assets to provide you with the maximum value available while complying with international standards, including:

  • R2:2013
  • ISO 9001:2015
  • ISO 14001:2015
  • ISO 45001:2018
