Solar PV De-Installer Services – Can I move my panels and keep my Feed in Tariff?
Today we were solar panel de-installers, taking panels down for a customer near Dartford who is building a new house. Ofgem advise that provided you are not changing the installation in any way, other than re-mounting it, you can knock down one house and put your solar panels onto the new one.
As far as we know, this is the only way in which you can move your panels and keep whatever Feed in Tariff (FiT) you signed up for. If you are moving to a new house, you may, of course take your panels with you, but you will have to register as a new FiT installation. The best place for a definitive answer to questions like these is Ofgem.
Thankfully, solar panels are pretty durable if handled in the right way, so we wrapped these panels carefully and put them into a storage container for this customer. Here is the roof once all the panels were removed.
