15-1202 v3.X Lead in PV Panel Wiring and Solder
Hello, can the wiring and solder encased inside of the SolarWorld Sunmodule Mono Plus PV modules be considered for a small electrical components exception? They contain lead per the attached manufacturer's ingredients letter, are hermetically sealed within the modules, and constitute less than 0.1% of the module.
Yes, the lead/copper wire and solder within the solar cells of a PV panel may be documented using Exception I10-E2, Small Electrical Components. The project team must confirm the small electrical components within the PV panel are RoHS compliant and gather supporting data for other major components, such as equipment housing and glass.
