How to Properly Remove Solar Panels from Your Roof

Solar Passion, Safety Priority, Service Expertise


Solar panels are a great way to harness renewable energy and reduce your carbon footprint. However, there may come a time when you need to remove them for maintenance or relocation. It is important to follow the proper steps to ensure the safety of both the panels and your roof.

Step 1: Turn Off Power

Before starting the removal process, make sure to turn off the power supply to the solar panels. This will prevent any accidents or damage during the removal process.

Step 2: Disconnect Wiring

Carefully disconnect the wiring connecting the solar panels to your electrical system. Label each wire to make reinstallation easier in the future.

Step 3: Remove Mounting Hardware

Unscrew and remove the mounting hardware that secures the solar panels to your roof. Make sure to keep track of all screws and bolts for reassembly.

Step 4: Lift Panels Carefully

With the help of a partner, lift the solar panels off the roof one by one. Be cautious to avoid any damage to the panels or your roof.

Step 5: Clean the Roof

After removing the solar panels, clean the area of your roof where the panels were installed. This will help maintain the integrity of your roof and prevent any leaks.

Step 6: Store Panels Properly

If you plan to reinstall the solar panels or sell them, make sure to store them properly in a secure location. Keep them covered and protected from the elements.


By following these steps, you can safely remove solar panels from your roof and ensure their proper maintenance. Remember to always prioritize safety and care when handling solar energy systems.
