The previous PV industry-standard, five-year product warranty is fast becoming obsolete as more PV module manufacturers reset to 10-year guarantees. Joining the 10-year brigade is JinkoSolar, moving from five to 10-year product warranties, though positive tolerance and separate, linear performance warranty remain an optional extra. JinkoSolar also offers a third-party insurance policy through PowerGuard Specialty Insurance Services.
The expanded warranty period relates to JinkoSolar’s Quantum-1 modules and is effective immediately, according to the company.
“Consumers and installers are making a considerable commitment when installing a PV system, and we want to do everything we can to assure them that JinkoSolar's Quantum-1 modules are a secure investment now and in the future. It definitely helps recognition and support from our bank partners, which backs up their financing decisions for Jinko modules both in Europe and in the USA.” said Arturo Herrero, Chief Marketing Officer of JinkoSolar.
