...The last few years have seen growing concern over what happens to solar panels at the end of their life. Consider the following statements:We are amused.
- The problem of solar panel disposal will explode with full force in two or three decades and wreck the environment because it is a huge amount of waste which is not easy to recycle. 1
- Solar panels create 300 times more toxic waste per unit of energy than do nuclear power plants.
The ultra-conservative Mark Neumann is plastering New Berlin with those damn panels. Will Neumann recycle them, too? If so, where?
Random other question: what's a "lifetime" for a solar panel? Answer: maybe 30 years.
