Decom Solar has successfully completed the decommissioning of a 360-kW rooftop solar array in Los Angeles, California, for Target Corporation and PowerFlex. The previous system consisted of legacy Shell Powerlight modules, Xantrax inverters and an integrated PowerGuard flat racking solution. The entire project, including the removal of all system equipment, was completed within three weeks.
PowerFlex, which managed the decommissioning project, will be adding a new system to the rooftop later this year.
“We are thrilled to have partnered with Decom Solar on this project. This collaboration brings together our collective expertise and shared commitment to environmental responsibility, allowing us to lead by example in the solar industry. We look forward to many more successful projects and a long-lasting partnership,” said Lucie Dupas, chief delivery officer at PowerFlex.
Decom Solar teamed up with SOLARCYCLE to recycle the decommissioned system.
“Decom Solar’s commitment to a greener future compliments SOLARCYCLE’S mission of making solar even more sustainable,” said Jesse Simons, chief commercial officer of SOLARCYCLE. “Commercial stores not only hold huge potential to generate renewable energy, but they can also help our country build a solar circular economy through recycling commitments. We look forward to future projects with Decom’s team and partners.”
All modules from the project have been transported to SOLARCYCLE’s advanced recycling facility in Odessa, Texas, where the panels are processed, recycled and reintegrated into the supply chain.
To further its commitment to the planet, Decom Solar partnered with One Tree Planted, a nonprofit dedicated to global reforestation. For this project, Decom Solar donated 4,795 trees to be planted on behalf of PowerFlex and Target.
