This article will explain what happens to your cells at the end of the 20-year lease
At the end of the 20-year lease term, your solar cells still belong to you - but they are approaching the end of their design life. So, what happens now?
Sun Exchange will assist in negotiating an additional 5-year lease, or, selling the cells and the rest of the system to the energy user, or another 3rd party for an estimated residual value which will be returned to you and other stakeholders.
The decision will depend on the energy user and also what makes the most business sense for us and the cell owners in the project.
Any electrical components that need to be disposed of will be handled by PVCycle.org.
Please feel free to reach out to us if you have any questions.
