SOLON has become one of the most innovative and reliable companies in the entire sector thanks to its focus on solar modules and technology ranging from roof systems to full-scale power plants. With its subsidiaries in Germany, Italy, and the US, SOLON is now a truly global service provider in the field of solar power.
The SOLON Commitment: We are committed to solar power. Society no longer has a choice about changing the way it produced energy; in fact the process is already irreversible – for both ecological an economic reasons. The intelligent use of photovoltaic technology reduces damage to environment caused by CO2 emissions, conserves raw materials an ensures strong returns.
Environmental Stewardship Respect for our environment is a primary tenet of SOLON’s philosophy. We demonstrate our commitment to protect and preserve the environment in every phase of our company’s business. To this end, the SOLON Board of Directors has established the SOLON Environmental Guidelines as a standard to which we hold ourselves.
Our objectives are to conserve natural resources, prevent environmentally hazardous emissions and guarantee environmentally friendly production, logistics and management. That is why
we adhere to a certified Environmental Management System compliant with ISO standard 14001 at all of our sites.
we have an administrative office and a production facility in Berlin that use up to 75% less energy than comparable buildings.
we still think about our products when our customers no longer need to: we recycle old solar modules and put the recyclable materials back into the economic cycle.
After all, we did play a significant role in founding the PV CYCLE Association for solar module recycling.
Solar Module Recycling
SOLON is a passionate advocate of ecological change.We are particularly concerned with careful use of resources: SOLON modules have an excellent materials recycling ratio of up to 90%. Valuable constituents such as silicon (cells), aluminum (frames) and solar glass, as well as copper and tin (soldered and cross-connections) are recycled to return raw materials to the economic cycle.
We have challenged ourselves to keep this materials recycling ratio as high as possible. This is why you profit from our free recycling service PV CYCLE where you can have your SOLON modules recycled. Simply visit the PV CYCLE website to find out your nearest collection point. If you want to have greater quantities recycled, you can also contact PV Cycle directly.
