How does solar affect my roof over the life of the system?

Before installing:

Solar electric (PV) panels* and micro-inverters* come with long life performance and durability warranties, generally 25 to 30 years. Panels are expected to perform and last beyond their warranties because they are a non-mechanical system, with few parts to wear out. Given this long life you want to make sure your roof is in good shape. It is easier to repair and update a roof than to remove the panels later and reinstall them. Solar panels weigh approximately 2.5 lbs/sq.ft., which is equivalent to adding a second layer of shingles.
