As of October 1, Solarwatt had extended the product warranty for all of its solar modules to 10 years. The company stated that for the 10-year period it would guarantee all of its delivered modules to be free of material and processing defects that would affect their operation.
“Our products are top quality and we want to extend this advantage to our customers”, explained Detlef Neuhaus, Solarwatt director of sales and marketing. “Solarwatt offers premium products – we rely on high-end materials, certified suppliers, top manufacturing ‘Made in Germany’ and tough quality controls. Our company has 20 year’s experience in module manufacturing. During this time our solar modules have proven their worth in all types of situations – including extreme weather and climate conditions such as hail, ammonia, sand storms and salt fog.”
The company also revealed that the product warranty for solar modules bought under its full coverage insurance would increase from 10 years to a new coverage period of 12 years. The full coverage package protects the Solarwatt modules as well as all the other components of the solar system. Solarwatt noted that to complete the offer it would cover the insurance premiums for the first five years.
Solarwatt advised that its Power Package includes the comprehensive insurance coverage, but that systems for up to 800kW would be able to purchase the package separately. The comprehensive insurance covers the solar system’s owner against theft, weather damage, loss if the plant cannot generate any output because of dame or the delivery of less output than was expected.
