Share today opens its new recycling center in Breckenridge, Texas. The site can fully recover and reuse solar equipment, including panels, inverters, cabling and batteries. The center, owned and operated by (SPR), can recycle 300 MW of solar panels annually, the company says.

The Texas recycling center will serve as a central hub for solar panel recycling operations in Texas and surrounding states. SPR intends to open additional regional recycling facilities over the next two years.

“As the world embraces the shift toward renewable energy sources, it’s imperative that we hold our industry to a higher standard than our oil and gas predecessors when it comes to environmental impact and recycling,” said Brett Henderson, CEO of “We simply cannot, as an industry, choose to landfill solar equipment all the while pushing for clean energy support. That’s why we provide a comprehensive solution for the lifecycle management of the entire solar energy system, ensuring that every single valuable resource has a second life.”

The facility employs advanced recycling techniques to recover valuable materials from solar panels, including but not limited to silicon, glass and metals. The new center will also serve as a knowledge hub for research and development initiatives focused on advancing the recycling processes and sustainability standards for the solar industry. Collaborations with academic institutions, industry partners, and government agencies will further enhance the company’s capabilities in driving innovation and creating a circular economy.

“Sustainability is not just a business imperative but a moral obligation,” Henderson said. “With our growing infrastructure and deep technological expertise, we are ideally positioned to lead the solar industry recycling effort and together, make an even more meaningful contribution to the transition towards a greener, more sustainable future.”

The Texas facility is the fourth domestic processing and receiving plant in SPR’s portfolio. It joins two locations in North Carolina and one in Georgia. Currently, SPR’s facilities can collectively process 1 GW of solar equipment annually.
