Solar PV panels have a lifespan of around 25 years typically, with some expected to last up to 40 years in the right conditions and with the proper maintenance and care throughout their lives. That is to say, solar panels last a long time, and your solar panel system should, in theory, be around for a long while yet.
But that isn't always the case.
When you install solar panels, you're not likely to expect having to remove solar panels in the near future. In fact, a solar panel system is designed to be incredibly durable.
Solar panels aren't susceptible to damage because they're very well protected, and the parts that make them work don't move, meaning general wear and tear is unlikely. With a lifespan and warranty of 25 years+, it might come as a shock to even see that Panelit Solar offers solar panels removal services to begin with. But yes, removing and reinstalling solar panels is becoming increasingly popular, so a solar panel installer like us needs to be on hand to offer our services where we can.
So, why might you need to make use of your solar installers for removal and reinstallation?

There are several factors that affect the costs of work like this. If you remove and reinstall panels from an unusual area of your roof or from a roof that's got difficult to work with materials, then the cost will increase. Costs will also increase if we require special tools to carry out the work due to the location of your property, or due to the nature of the work. The larger your solar power system, the more it will cost to remove and reinstall, because the labour cost will also increase.
Our point? It's difficult to provide an average for the cost of removing and reinstalling solar panels because each solar array is different. With that in mind, for an average 3 bedroom property in the UK with a 12 panel PV system, you can expect it to cost around £500-£1000. This cost greatly increases if we need to remove and reinstall panels in unusual areas.
The very best way to find out how much it will cost YOU to remove and reinstall YOUR panels is to call us today. As soon as we know more about the system you have in place, we'll be able to provide you with an upfront, no hidden fees quote for the work.

We hope that our PV solar panel removal services haven't made you think you'll be removing PV panels regularly, because that isn't the case. In fact, if you had a relatively new roof at the time of installation of your original solar panels, and you don't plan on moving property anytime soon, you probably won't have to remove and reinstall your panels until they come to the end of their natural life.
PV panels can last for upwards of 25 years, and you hopefully won't ever have to call a solar company like ours to remove them before then. But if you must, for whatever reason, then you know where to find us.
