Our Mission

Your advanced solar recycling solutions company.

SOLARCYCLE® provides an affordable, eco-friendly process to decommission solar panels and repurpose the materials for new uses.

We partner with the nation’s leading solar companies to recycle their solar systems and build a circular solar economy.

Work with us

Solar is one of the most powerful tools we have in our fight against climate change. Solar systems can last for decades, but like all good things, they eventually come to an end.

SOLARCYCLE® transports, sorts, and recycles panels when they reach their end-of-life. We safely turn your older solar systems into new, valuable materials needed for the next generation of solar panels.

We extract up to 95% of the value in a solar panel and return it to the supply chain.

Industry Expertise

America’s most advanced recycler, made for and by the solar industry.

We were established by the solar industry, for the solar industry. Founded by experts in renewable energy, sustainability, and recycling, our leadership knows firsthand why the industry needs a partner to restore, renew, and ultimately recycle yesterday's solar panels for tomorrow's renewable energy projects.

About us
Industry solutions

Fast, environmentally friendly and fully permitted solar panel removal and recycling for asset owners nationwide.

Construction breakage

Even the most careful installer may break panels. We will safely transport and recycle any modules that are damaged during the installation process.

Operations and maintenance

We manage panels that are damaged due to extreme weather events, wear and tear, warranty failure and more.

Repowering old systems

We manage the repair, refurbishment and recycling for systems that have reached their end of life.

Industry solutions

The industry’s go-to leader for building a circular economy for solar.

Since opening in 2022, we have earned the trust of the leading solar companies who have committed to recycling their solar panels sustainably with us. We are also a member of Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA)'s National PV Recycling Program, Advanced Energy United (AEU), and American Clean Power (ACP). Our partnerships help increase the industry's commitment to recycling and ensure environmentally responsible end-of-life management.

Industry Responsibility

Our high material recovery rates are transforming the solar supply chain.

SOLARCYCLE®’s recycling technology can extract up to 95 percent of the value from solar panels, compared to the industry standard which is currently below 50%. Recycling solar panels can contribute to a domestic supply of materials essential to the production of new solar panels, including glass, silicon, and valuable metals such as silver, copper, and aluminum.

Industry Responsibility

We prioritize safety and compliance to protect people and the environment.

SOLARCYCLE® ensures that our advanced recycling process is safe and that our recycling operations protect workers, the community, and the broader environment.

Working within a stringent set of systems developed by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO), SOLARCYCLE® is actively certified under:

ISO 9001

Orion ISO 9001 certification

ISO 14001

Orion ISO 14001 certification

ISO 45001

Orion ISO 45001 certification
Industry Expertise

We keep recycling costs low with advanced technologies.

Our patented processes to extract and renew critical materials like silver and copper are increasingly extracting value from each panel.  Combined with reverse logistics, our technology allows us to provide the lowest-cost recycling solution to our customers.

Industry Responsibility

Our research team is on the cutting-edge of recycling innovation.

Our research team is the best in the business. We are working with the Department of Energy’s National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) and partners to optimize the recovery process and develop new solutions to recover the valuable materials in solar cells and solar modules and return them back to the supply chain.
