Frequently Asked Questions
What are photovoltaic (P.V.) panels?
Photovoltaic (PV) panels are commonly known as solar cell panels or solar panels.
Do I need to own PV panels to participate?
No. The event is designed to impart knowledge on how to sustainably manage PV system components during and after their useful life. Whether you already own or have interest in having a PV system in the future, this event will help you make better informed decisions to that end.
Do PV panels have an expiration date?
Yes, the efficiency of a PV panel begins to degrade after 20-25 years of use on account of weather conditions, chemical deterioration of its components, as well as equipment operation and maintenance.
