Moving solar panels for velux windows

    Thinking about getting solar panels installed, but we might convert our attic at some point in the future.

    Do I need to have a good idea of where any velux windows will go, and avoid putting panels on those spots? Trouble is we don't know where we might break out windows if ever.

    How costly would it be to move the panels if we need to shift them for the veluxes at a later point? Would you trust a building contractor to do it, or would i be getting the solar crowd back to move them?

    Simpler solution, put velux on other side of roof without solar panels?

    I'd have a good chat with the solar installer about it, if you get your maths right you might be able to leave a couple of gaps for the veluxes to be installed later so there's no messing about

    Personally I wouldn't trust the builder to remove the panels unless they have experience in this area, might be worth checking with builders before as part of the tender
