When it comes to choosing solar panels, it’s essential to consider not only their efficiency and durability but also their environmental impact. WINAICO is proud to announce that our glass-glass solar modules from the WST-NGX and WST-NGXB series are completely free from perfluorinated and polyfluorinated chemicals, commonly known as PFAS. This makes them a safer choice for both your home and the environment, especially if you collect rainwater from your roof.

What Are PFAS?

PFAS are chemicals used in various products due to their water and grease-repellent properties, UV resistance, and durability. These qualities are beneficial for solar modules, which are exposed to harsh weather conditions and need to perform efficiently for over 30 years. However, PFAS are also known as “forever chemicals” because they do not break down in the environment and can accumulate over time, posing significant health and environmental risks.

The Problem with PFAS

PFAS are virtually indestructible and do not degrade in nature, making them a persistent pollutant. They can contaminate water supplies and enter the food chain, leading to potential health risks for humans and wildlife. Furthermore, recycling or reusing products containing PFAS is challenging, limiting the possibilities for sustainable product life cycles.

WINAICO’s Commitment to Safety and Sustainability

Understanding these risks, WINAICO has made a conscious decision to exclude PFAS from our solar modules. Our glass-glass panels are designed without these harmful chemicals, ensuring that they are safe for your home and the environment. This commitment to safety means that if you collect rainwater from your roof, using WINAICO panels will not introduce any PFAS into the water, making it safe for use in your household or garden.

Benefits of PFAS-Free Solar Panels

  1. Environmental Protection: By choosing PFAS-free solar panels, you are reducing the release of harmful chemicals into the environment. This helps protect wildlife and ecosystems from contamination.
  2. Safe Rainwater Collection: Homeowners who collect rainwater from their roofs can rest assured that WINAICO panels will not contaminate their water supply with PFAS, ensuring safe and clean water for various uses.
  3. Health Benefits: Eliminating PFAS from solar panels reduces the potential for human exposure to these harmful substances, promoting better health for your family and community.
  4. Sustainability: WINAICO’s PFAS-free panels are easier to recycle and reuse, contributing to more sustainable product life cycles and reducing waste.
