Target solar array recycled by Decom, making way for new project via PowerFlex

Los Angeles Target

Solar decommissioning specialist Decom Solar helped PowerFlex decommission a 360-kW rooftop solar array in Los Angeles for Target Corp., making way for a new solar project at the location.

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.

Key to decommissioning, Decom Solar teamed up with SOLARCYCLE, a tech-driven recycling company focused on producing sustainable and domestic materials at scale for the solar industry. 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.

“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,” stated Jesse Simons, Chief Commercial Officer of SOLARCYCLE. “We look forward to future projects with Decom’s team and partners.”

PowerFlex will be adding a new state-of-the-art system later this year.

Target Decom Solar project

“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.

To further their commitment to the planet, Decom Solar partnered with One Tree Planted, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit dedicated to global reforestation. For this project, Decom Solar donated 4,795 trees to be planted on behalf of PowerFlex and Target.
