If I am replacing my old system with a new one, will the selected supplier remove and dispose of my existing system?

If I am replacing my old system with a new one, will the selected supplier remove and dispose of my existing system?

If the selected supplier installed your solar system, you may be fully covered for any solar system replacement work if under a valid manufacturer's warranty.
If the existing system is still working and you have enough roof space for the new system, you could consider leaving it there.
Your installer may also have access to recycling via manufacturer take-back schemes.
If they cannot dispose of it then your options for your old solar panels are as follows:
  1. Sell them
  2. Give them away
  3. Some councils may take them – check where you live
  4. Find a scrap dealer who will take them for free.
  5. Pay for them to be disposed of as electronic waste.
  6. Pay for them to be recycled
