    Hi,
    Anyone know how much it would cost to remove and reinstall 4kw solar panel array? am considering having roof replaced.

    Thanks in advance.

    Hi

    Depending on the installer, 40-60% of an average installation cost is the installation process.

    Hope this helps.

    Anyone know of a local (Edinburgh, Scotland) solar panel installer who can take the panels off and re-install them at a new address. We have 14 panels altogether

      Hi Tom

      Today, I really don’t think removing and reinstalling is very cost effective. PV costs have reduced considerably over the last few years, so it would work out cheaper to reinstall a new system at your new address, rather than upping sticks with your old system.

      Additionally, your old system will be a great incentive to buy for house purchasers, as the feed-in tariff is limited to the address of the installation and is not transferable to a new address.

    Hi
    I have a challenge.
    I live in France and previously had a sun systems hot water kit fitted in our roof. These appear to be similar to the flat plate design you sell. dimensions of the leaking panel is 2101 x 1100 mm (surface area 2523 m2) and is one of a pair.
    could you tell me if the panel is compatible and offer a price (in £s and for collection in the UK) if it is. I have been unable to source the manufacturer of the original kit
    who were Sun Systems UK
    Thanks

      Hi Dave

      Sun Systems UK went pop around 2011. They were a rebranded system from a German manufacturer, but I cannot for the life of me remember the original manufacturer’s name.

      We’ve not sold any flat-plate panels since 2012 as PV is now our recommendation, but a good UK flat-plate manufacturer is:
