Let Us Replace Your Current Solar Array With a New, Updated, System
At Green Collar Crew, we understand that changing circumstances may require the removal and replacement of solar panels. That is why we make it easy to inspect your current system and either replace individual panels or the entire system in the event of a necessary roof work.
When is a Panel Removal and Replacement Necessary?
One of our experienced team members will contact you in order to learn about your needs, which may include one of the following:
– Roofing repair or replacement
– Relocating to a new property
– Damaged solar panels
– Upgrading your existing solar array
After we are able to inspect your roof and existing system, we will be able to recommend the best course of action and help you make an informed decision on next steps. No home project is too big or small for us, so be sure to reach out with any questions!
How much will it cost?
There is no easy way to estimate the cost, as no two projects are similar. But after a quick call with a qualified member of our team, we will be better able to provide you with cost and time estimates.
How Our Process Works
Chat With an Expert
Schedule a time to speak with one of our experienced, certified energy consultants about the specifics of your project. After an initial call, schedule a time for them to inspect your roof and existing solar system.
Once your energy consultant has all necessary information, they will put together a proposal that you will be able to review and revise with them (in person or over webcam) until you are fully satisfied.
Remove and Replace
In collaboration with your roofing company or general contractor, we will remove your existing solar system and re-install/replace it in a timely manner. Our team will also safely store and/or transport your equipment during this time.
After the work is completed, our crew will run diagnostic tests again to ensure the newly installed system is providing the expected results. We will work with you to resolve any remaining issues.
Ready To Start Your Project and Make Your Home More Efficient?
We are always looking for local roofing companies to partner with, so please reach out if you have a client who may be interested in our services. We are happy to compensate for any referrals!

Air Sealing a home is one of the most cost-effective ways to make a home more comfortable and energy-efficient. Air leakage through windows, doors, walls, rim bands, floors and ceilings has been shown to increase heating and cooling costs 35-40%. Unsealed chases and cavities by way of attics and crawl spaces bring unconditioned and unfiltered air into living areas. Green Collar Crew’s Air Sealing Trade Partners use environmentally friendly caulks, foam, insulation board, etc. along with good building science to reduce air infiltration.
Insulation is only effective if it is a continuous thermal barrier, with no air gaps or voids, and is in continuous contact with the air barrier or building envelope. Batt insulation is very often improperly installed, stuffed into stud cavities, with gaps and voids between the batt and the drywall. When insulation is compressed, it loses R value. Our Insulation Trade Partners understand the building science behind proper installation and will work closely with your Auditor to determine the best products and insulation locations.
Attic Stair Cover & Hatch
You may have properly insulated your home’s attic floor, but did you think about the attic drop-down stairs or attic hatch? Do you have an open or non-insulated whole house fan? These are basically big holes in the air barrier and thermal boundary and could be responsible for heat loss in the winter and heat gain in the summer. Our Weatherization Trade Partners complete the weatherization process by sealing these opening to the attic of your home. They insulate the attic access with an Attic Access Cover which is made to drop down and fit tightly over the opening of a home’s attic access.
Leaky ducts are a leading cause of poor indoor air quality as pollutants are drawn into the system, re-circulated, and distributed throughout the house through the heating and cooling systems. Leaky ducts also contribute significantly to a home’s energy loss. Our Duct Renovation Trade Partners use Duct Blaster® equipment to pinpoint leakages in the HVAC ductwork and measure sealing success. You will be provided with before and after leakage measurements to guarantee success. Typical duct renovation also includes straightening or replacing ducts, sealing air handlers with proper materials, or hanging ducts where necessary.
A majority of the air you breathe in your home rises from your crawl space and it can be perfect for breeding moisture and mold which can create a musty smell and release toxins that can affect your family’s health. Closing your crawl space keeps mold away with a high quality moisture barrier and converts it into a semi-conditioned dry space. Closed crawl spaces have been proven to save homeowners money on their energy bill. Our well-trained Closed Crawl Space Trade Partners encapsulate, insulate, drain and air seal your foundations ensuring energy efficient and healthy crawl spaces.
Green Collar Crew Tune-Up
Most likely, your HVAC systems are not performing at their optimal level. On average, systems perform at 60% of their capacity. If your Auditor determines your system(s) is performing poorly or is not properly balanced and typical Duct Renovation may not correct the problem, your Auditor may recommend more advanced diagnostics before moving forward with retrofitting. A highly trained HVAC Diagnostics Partner will perform comprehensive diagnostics to determine specific causes of the problems and recommend proper solutions.
