Integrated PV manufacturer REC Group has increased its product warranties across its portfolio of TwinPeak and N-Peak modules from 10 to 20 years as degradation rates have reduced and has started to offer an extra 5-year product warranty for installations carried out by REC-certified Solar Professionals, resulting in a 25-year coverage.

The company also announced that its first-year degradation rates under the performance arranties have been reduced from 3% to 2.5% for all REC TwinPeak products.

REC Group’s latest N-Peak solar module already has a first-year degradation of just 2% with warranted annual power loss having been improved from 0.7% to 0.5% for all REC 72-cell modules that feature REC's frame design. As a result, the final warranted power output increases to at least 85.5% after 25 years of operation, according to the company.

“REC's new warranty, which now ranks as one of the best in the industry, is a testament to our consistent excellent product and performance quality,” commented Rohit Kumar, Head of Indian Subcontinent at REC Group. “The extended warranty terms for REC Solar Professionals further demonstrate our strong commitment to building and maintaining long-term alliances with our partners who install and maintain installations with our panels around the world.”

REC’s extra 5-year product warranty for installations carried out by REC-certified Solar Professionals, were said to undergo a unique training program for best practice installations that provides long-term quality and reliable production of an installation.
