Are solar panels today carbon footprint break-even during (and after) lifetime?
I know this is ever changing, and big effort is being made to find new ways to produce PV panels from cheaper/more environmentally friendly materials, but if I were to buy PV panels today, will they ever reach carbon footprint break-even point, when we take into account their production AND waste management?
On some soruces, I’ve found that getting rid of these panels is a big problem, because of the toxic materials used. How big a problem is this?
