Aleo Solar, the module and systems manufacturer owned by Bosch group, has joined solar project insurers Assurant Insurance to offers homeowners a warranty management to guarantee longevity of Aleo Solar systems that was previously only available to commercial developers.
Aleo solar will now be able to offer homeowners purchasing solar installations, an Assurant warranty plan for up to 20 years. The warranty management programme will cover solar installation components including solar panels, inverters and racking systems, warranted by the original equipment manufacturers.
The warranty plan hopes to reduce concerns from many consumers by consolidating warranties for a simpler, one contact reference point for warranty claims, rather than having to call numerous manufacturers of various components, resulting in a quicker repair response.
Shane Messer, executive vice president said Aleo Solar North America is happy to be providing “additional security” for solar users.
The US residential solar installation market is growing according to the US Solar Market Insight: Year-in-Review 2012 by the Solar Energy Industries Association and GTM Research, who reported the US residential market grew by 53% over the first quarter in 2012, and 11% over the final quarter.
