Dear FOIA Officer:

This is a request under the Freedom of Information Act. I hereby request the following records:

Any and all documentation regarding chemicals emitted and/or created as a result of making solar panels and photovoltaic panels. Please include records on chemicals emitted or created in all forms (liquid, gas, air molecules, etc.). Please include all known health risks of said chemicals and chemical productions.

I also request that, if appropriate, fees be waived as I believe this request is in the public interest. The requested documents will be made available to the general public free of charge as part of the public information service at MuckRock.com, processed by a representative of the news media/press and is made in the process of news gathering and not for commercial usage.

In the event that fees cannot be waived, I would be grateful if you would inform me of the total charges in advance of fulfilling my request. I would prefer the request filled electronically, by e-mail attachment if available or CD-ROM if not.

Thank you for your assistance. I look forward to receiving your response to this request within 20 business days, as the statute requires.
