Is it safe to remove solar panels from my roof?
Yes, at any time, you can remove solar panels from your roof. However, the proper process is needed to ensure no damage or safety accidents occur. This process starts by disconnecting the panels from the main electrical line to protect all materials and workers.
Does removing solar panels damage my roof?
The short answer is – No. Each solar panel weighs roughly around 40 lbs. and other material on the roof, such as the racking hardware, is around the same weight. Because of the weight and working environment, some things, of course, can go wrong when low-quality workmanship occurs. That’s why when looking for a solar removal professional, focus on a solar company that’s fully insured and licensed for the best results.
What’s the process of removing solar panels from my roof and then reinstalling?
- Removal of the solar panels, racking, and attachments to the roof.
- Sealing up all penetrations to ensure no further leaks until a roof replacement is done.
- All components to the solar energy system are stored safely on site.
- Our install team comes back after the roof replacement and re-installs the solar electric system like a brand-new installation.
- Once the installation is finished our team at Sunshine Plus Solar will recommission your system to ensure everything is running efficiently.
How much does it cost to remove solar panels?
Removing solar panels requires a skilled organization that has the tools and knowledge to get the job done safely and accurately. A solar panel removal typically costs around $180 per panel. This price will vary by the number of solar panels needed to be removed, roof pitch, and other replacement materials needed.
Can you reinstall the same parts from my solar energy system?
Yes, we try to reuse the same parts and pieces from the solar energy system on every reinstall. These parts are durable and, in most cases, can be removed and reinstalled without damaging any of the lifetime use. There are particular situations where a part or solar panel gets damaged, and at that time, we always will replace it with OEM materials.
