Since solar arrays generally last 25-30+ years, you’ll want to install them atop a newer roof.
Going further, solar panels weigh approximately 35-50 pounds each, plus an additional 4 to 6 pounds per square foot of racking and mounting hardwire. This means that a 40 panel array could weigh approximately 2,000 pounds or more!
For obvious reasons, the structural integrity of your roof is a key component to a successful solar array installation.
