Types of Solar Panel Warranties: Demystified

During your research on commercial solar options, you’ll encounter various warranties, each with distinct coverage and terms. Understanding the differences between solar panel product warranties and power warranties is crucial.

1. Solar Panel Product Warranty:
This warranty covers defects in materials or workmanship. If a panel malfunctions due to flaws in solder joints or other issues, the product warranty typically covers repairs or replacements.

2. Solar Panel Power Warranty:
Over time, all solar panels experience power degradation. Power warranties outline the guaranteed minimum power output over specific periods (e.g., 5, 10, and 25 years). If a panel’s output falls below the promised level, the manufacturer repairs, replaces, or reimburses the panel based on warranty terms.

3. Combined Power and Product Warranty:
Some manufacturers offer both power and product warranties for varying durations. It’s essential to scrutinize the terms, ensuring alignment between power and product coverage. Careful evaluation prevents misunderstandings, especially when power output issues stem from product flaws.
