Conserve and Go Solar

How long does a rooftop solar array last?

Solar panels are generally guaranteed to last 25-30 years. Most warranties for panels cover 20-25 years, producing at 80%. However, that doesn’t mean they won’t work after 30 years. They just might produce a decreasing amount of energy after that timeframe. Inverters last about 15 years and usually come with 10-15 year warranties. Every 10 – 12 years, you may need to replace your inverter. Extended warranties are available for replacing equipment. Solar systems may require maintenance from time to time. On occasion, animals or birds may damage wires. Sometimes cleaning can help performance as well, so it is recommended to have a solar professional check your system every 3-5 years. More FAQs on solar PV
