How It Works
Solar cells, also called photovoltaic (PV) cells by scientists, convert sunlight directly into electricity. PV gets its name from the process of converting light (photons) to electricity (voltage), which is called the PV effect. The PV effect was discovered in 1954, when scientists at Bell Telephone discovered that silicon (an element found in sand) created an electric charge when exposed to sunlight.
Soon solar cells were being used to power space satellites and smaller items like calculators and watches. Today, thousands of people power their homes and businesses with individual solar PV systems. Utility companies are also using PV technology for large power stations.

Compare this to a five-year CD (average yearly return of 2.5%) or even the S&P 500 (average yearly return of 11%). Although some stocks can provide a higher return than a solar system, stock prices are also substantially more volatile year after year

Solar Panel Removal from Team All Star Construction
Solar panels are a great investment and can protect your home from UV radiation, while saving you money on your electricity bill. However, what if you plan to sell your home and you want to bring your solar panels with you or maybe it’s time for a re-roof? Whatever the reason, all roofs need to be replaced at some point, leaving homeowners wondering what to do. At Team All Star Construction we provide solar panel removal services to help you remove your panels when we are doing work on your roof.
What is Solar Panel Removal?
It might seem like solar panel removal would be a bit of a taboo topic in a community so heavily focused on renewable energy production, but solar panels are just like any other piece of equipment attached to your home. Homeowners who are replacing their old roof (or another home improvement) may need their solar system removed, and after the work is completed, reinstalled.
What is involved in Solar Panel Removal?
If you need to have your panel cleaned or repaired, the removal is as simple as unbolting the panels from their mounting device and unplugging the connecting power wires. However, for a full removal, the solar circuit must also be disconnected from the main line. Additionally, if you plan to sell your home after the panels are removed, you’ll also need to have your installer remove the mounting hardware that holds the panels upright.
Our Solar R&R Process
Team All Star Construction uninstalls the solar panels, racking and roof attachments to make the roof ready for action. If needed, Team All Star Construction packages and stores the system components at our secure facility or we will stack neatly on your property. Once the repairs to the roof are completed, Team All Star Construction returns to reinstall your system (including any upgrades).
After the Reinstallation is complete, we test and recommission your system to ensure it’s running right.
