Solar panels can last anywhere between 25 to 30 years, sometimes more. But this doesn’t mean the panels on your roof will stop producing electricity after a couple of decades. It just means that their energy production will decrease to what solar panel manufacturers consider optimal to meet the average households energy needs. With proper care and maintenance, you can expect to receive solar production for the next 20 to 30 years
