Frequently Asked Questions
Yes it is possible they may have some value. And in fact, you may be surprised at how much your used solar panel can be sold in the market in California, North Carolina, Florida, Arizona or Texas as long as they are in still good working condition.
As with brand-new solar panels, the standard method of pricing used solar panels is according to cost per watt.
The average value of a used solar panel is between $0.05 to $0.60 per watt, while brand-new solar panels cost $0.70 to $1.50 per watt on average. Of course, the actual value of your used solar panels can vary depending on state (like Texas, Florida or Arizona), the type of solar panel (i.e., mono-crystalline, thin-film, poly-crystalline, etc.), condition, and other factors.
Keep in mind logistics fees will offset some value, we typically work with commercial utility scale solar projects to help average out these expenses.
Yes, if your used solar panels are still functional and are in relatively good condition, then they very well may have resale value in Arizona, Florida North Carolina etc., and you should be able to recoup some of your investment by selling them. Shipping and handling is usually the biggest expense that can offset any value so having a volume quantity of them to average out those costs is important.
As a general rule of thumb, solar panels that still have more than ten years of energy production can be resold in California or Texas. Most manufacturers guarantee their solar panels can generate power at 80% or higher for the first 20 years, with the average degradation rate of less than 1% per year.
If, however, your solar panels no longer work, or have some damage then you may need to repair them first before selling them, or another option is to recycle them which has an average cost of about $20 – $50 usd per panel to properly recycle them in addition to shipping costs.
There are three main ways to sell your used solar panels in states like Arizona, North Carolina or Florida, each option with its own pros and cons:
- Finding your own buyer, for example, by advertising it on Craigslist. This option will give you the most freedom in pricing your used panels and equipment as you see fit, but you’ll need to do everything by yourself, including making sure to stay compliant with the relevant regulations. *If you’re a home owner with just a small amount of panels (under 100) this may be your only option.
- Listing your used solar panels for sale on marketplaces like Amazon or eBay. You’ll have less freedom than in finding your own buyer, but you’ll have better security as a seller, and you can take advantage of these platforms’ reach, so it’s easier to find your buyer.
- Using the service of solar panel buyers like Solar Recycling. Unfortunately they typically only deal with commercial utility scale solar projects and do not deal in small quantity residential so under 100 panels you will need to refer to #1 or option #2. Here you may not get as much freedom in how much you’d like to price your panels, but the solar equipment handler can schedule everything for you, from disassembling your panels and equipment to sorting to packing out your panels for delivery and preparing the end of life plan for broken unusable panels for physical recycling.
If you are trying to find your own buyer or listing your used solar panels for sale on online marketplaces like eBay, finding your buyer can be quite challenging, not to mention you may need to stay compliant with environmental laws and other applicable regulations in your area.
Not to mention, if you somehow find a buyer, you’ll need to remove the solar panel from where it’s currently installed, sort them, package them, and arrange transportation, which can be quite challenging in practice.
This is why working with a solar equipment professional such as Solar Recycling is a much more desirable option If you are looking to sell your used commercial utility scale solar panels and equipment in volume in Texas, California or Arizona.
Solar Recycling offers an easy way to sell your used solar panels online, even long after your solar panel has its OEM warranty expired.
Solar Recycling strives to help you recoup as much of your initial solar panel investment by buying your used solar panels and equipment in Florida, North Carolina and more. Main goal is Net ZERO Waste with Net ZERO cost when possible.

Typically up to $50 per panel plus shipping expenses.
