Publication Type

This new Eco Design Note continues a discussion about product repair, focusing on steps that manufacturers can take to enable and encourage the repair of their products. The Note identifies three elements that can assist in repair efforts. These include designing a product for repair, making replacement parts available to local repair shops, and publishing technical information that can assist service technicians. The development of viable repair options for consumers will build confidence in renewable energy products and help markets continue to grow and thrive.
