Once the hardware is removed, a good solar panel installer will carefully lift the solar panels off of the roof or structure. They will make sure that the panels are lifted evenly to prevent any damage.
Preparation: Before the panelling can be lifted, the Panelit Solar team will prepare the area to ensure a safe and efficient removal. This includes clearing any debris or obstacles from the work area and setting up safety equipment, such as harnesses and safety lines.
Removal of Mounting Hardware: We will carefully remove the mounting equipment holding the solar panels in place. This may include screws, brackets, or other hardware that is used to secure the panels to the roof or other structure.
Lifting Process: Once the hardware is removed, the Panelit Solar team will begin the lifting process. We will use specialist equipment, such as cranes or hoists, to carefully lift the panels off of the roof or structure, if necessary. During the lifting process, the team will make sure that the panels are lifted evenly to prevent any damage.
Loading and Transport: After the panels are lifted off of the roof or structure, we will carefully load them onto a truck or trailer for transport to the desired location. We take considerable care to secure the entire system properly during transport to prevent any damage.
Disposal or Recycling: Once the panels have been transported to the desired location, Panelit Solar will dispose of or recycle them in an environmentally responsible manner. Depending on the type and condition of the panels, they may be recycled or refurbished for reuse.
Overall, the panel lift service provided by Panelit Solar is designed to ensure a safe and efficient removal process. By carefully preparing the area, removing the hardware, lifting the panels evenly, and loading and transporting them properly, our solar installation and removal team can reduce the risk of damage or injury during the removal process.
Also, by disposing of or recycling the panels in an environmentally responsible manner, we are committed to sustainability and minimising the impact on the environment, while helping you improve a better standard of energy production at home.

Removal of Solar Panels: Our team will carefully remove your solar panels, using the appropriate tools and equipment. We will ensure the panels are handled safely and that there is no damage to your property.
Assessment of Panels: When we remove your old solar panels, we will first assess the condition of the panelling to determine the most appropriate disposal method. If the system is in good condition, it may be refurbished for reuse, while panels that are damaged or no longer functional will be disposed of or recycled.
If there are signs of panel failure, or the panelling doesn't gather as much solar power as expected, we can advise on the best course of action.
Disposal: Panelit Solar will dispose of your old solar panels in an environmentally-friendly manner, ensuring that they are not sent to a landfill. We follow recommended regulations for disposing of electronic waste, including any hazardous materials.
Compliance and Documentation: Panelit Solar ensures that all recycling is done in compliance with local and national regulations, and provides documentation to customers verifying the responsible disposal and recycling of their old solar panels.
Site Clean-Up: After we've removed your solar panels, we'll ensure that your site is left clean and tidy. As you'd expect, there is a lot of mess when you remove and reinstall solar power panels, but as a trusted solar installer, we make sure everything looks great before we finish.
