Efforts are being made to address the recycling of damaged and/or decommissioned solar PV panels. Here is a list of links for more information about this topic.
- The Washington State Department of Ecology website has information concerning current legislation and manufacturer guidance.
- HB 2645 concerning the photovoltaic module stewardship and takeback program which was passed in 2020, but later vetoed by Governor Inslee due to pandemic related budget cuts.
- Solar Washington addressed this topic at the 2019 Washington State Solar Summit. See the session on "Solar panel recycling & addressing the current Washington recycling legislation (Photovoltaic module stewardship and takeback program)".
