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.
