A Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) is exactly what it sounds like - an assessment of the life cycle of a product. From the moment silicon is extracted out of the raw material, to the day that our module is installed on your rooftop and even after 30years when the module comes to its end-of-life stage and goes to waste treatment plant, the LCA takes into account the environmental impacts of all stages. You can think of it as a powerful calculator which helps you understand all the changes exist with one module energy consumption/carbon emission and so on, after comparing with others, you can get a clear image of environmental performance of different products.
