Recommendations for Action
If you are a commercial, governmental, or residential purchaser of solar PV, you are making a long-term financial and environmental commitment. Be sure that the panel manufacturer is making the same long-term commitment to purchasers and to the environment.
How to Use the Solar Scorecard
If you have not yet purchased solar PV panels—please use the scorecard to help ensure that you buy from a company that is working toward a more just and sustainable future.
If you already own solar PV panels—find the company that manufactured your panels and see if they have a plan in place to takeback and responsibly recycle panels and also determine whether they support mandatory programs. If they don’t support such programs, encourage them to do so. It will help you and the environment!
If you own solar panels made by a company that got an “eclipse” score—contact them to ask if they plan to implement a takeback program, and encourage them to answer our survey next year.
