Troubleshooting & Repairs
So far, more than 2 million houses in the US have solar panels installed and the number is expected to grow more by the end of the next 30-40 years. One of the major concerns regarding solar panels is that they do not remain efficient for their entire tenure. They just work well up to a limit and then their efficiency starts to drop. For example, if a panel has a warranty of 10 years, it’ll start working below its level best after 3-5 years.
So, there is no way one should waste these panels after using them for a specific time period. Rather, they should be recycled. Recycled solar panels won’t work in the same way as the new ones used to do but something is better than nothing. Just take a look at the energy requirements for your house and then act accordingly; recycle a few old panels and buy some new ones too. This will help you save some amount.
How to Maintain the Panels Regularly?
Solar panels need regular maintenance just because of the presence of dust which acts as a barrier between solar radiations and the surface of panels due to which efficiency of the panels starts to drop. Some of the things from solar panels that can be recycled very easily include:
• Glass, because it makes up to 75% of a solar panel’s surface and is 90-95% reusable.
• Aluminum is another component of solar panels which is almost 100% reusable.
• Plastic can also be recycled and it makes up to 6-8% of PV panels.
• Silicon present in solar panels can also be recycled and reused.
All in all, you have the option of recycling the panels very easily instead of wasting them in order to meet your energy requirements.
