In this article we demonstrated the study results of durability quality of concrete containing waste solar PV cells. The study used alkali activator to improve the activity of alkali-activated materials in solar PV cells so as to replace Portland cement as binder in concrete. By using sodium hydroxide as an alkali-activator, a high-pH environment is generated to excite the binding characteristics of alkali-activated materials in solar PV cells, and thus develops better durability of the mixes. The conclusions were made on effect of this cement replacement. As a result, we identified the durability for those of 16 concrete specimens predefined and made to consider various possible control factors. The conclusions also depicted that all experiments but the drying shrinkage may be helpful with the suitable use of control factors as far as concerning the recycled solar PV cells for mixing in concrete. In other words, the durability quality of concrete may be partially unacceptable of containing solar PV cells.
