Below you will find useful links to downloads, research papers, podcasts and articles relating to Solar What?! and the project's goal to advocate for sustainable design in the global solar industry and promote the repair, reuse and recycling of solar powered electronics.

SolarWhat?! is entirely open sourced via GitHub. There you can find design files for the enclosures and PCBs, including bills of materials, Gerber files, STEP files and firmware. We encourage discussion, iteration and collaboration to improve and adapt our work. 

For additional information about the industry's growing efforts to combat solar e-waste we encourage you to reach out to the Global Off-Grid Lighting Association

"Any solar product is just like a big microchip, with many of the same components, materials and problems." Sheila Davis, Director of the Silicon Valley Toxics Coalition, 2015
