Suntech Power has extended the limited warranty for it solar panels from five to 10 years. The new warranty covers defects concerning materials and workmanship and is applicable for all standard panels shipped out after April 1.
“Solar panels are a long-term investment, and our customers want to work with a bankable partner that will stand behind its products,” said Andrew Beebe, Suntech's chief commercial officer. “Suntech's extension of the limited product warranty minimises performance risk for our customers, and will ultimately help to drive down the levelised cost of solar electricity for consumers, reaffirming our commitment to our customers.”
In addition to the limited product warranty, all of Suntech's standard modules come with a 25-year power output warranty that guarantees 6.7% more power than the typical industry warranty. The panels also feature 0%/5% positive power tolerance, which means that they will meet or exceed their nameplate power capacity, compared to the industry standard of -3%/+3%.
