That would concern me if they did not have a profoundly long working
life. The original solar panels built during world war 2 are STILL
WORKING, so, the "life" of solar panels is still unknown - except that
they exceed 60 years.

I am sure the most wealthy and powerful people in the world (the owners
of giant oil production - who still have not paid once cent in compensation
to the generational fishing industry families that were wiped out - or for
anything else from the Exxon Valdez? incident - having the most highly
educated and sophisticated lawyers on the planet) would like everyone to
believe renewable power sources are all poppycock.
