For big purchases, a good warranty is vital. It’s common sense to want to protect your investment, especially one that’s going to be around for decades, like your solar panels. So you’re probably wondering what type of warranties home solar panels come with.
There are two primary warranties that your solar panels should always include: the equipment warranty and the performance warranty.
A product warranty covers you in the event of a manufacturing defect in your solar equipment and parts. As you might expect, solar panels come with a range of warranties, depending on the panels and solar company you choose. At Aurora Energy, we only work with the best. Our standard product warranty includes:
- Roof penetration – 25 years
- Inverter – 25 years
- Panel workmanship – 25 years
Today’s solar panels are extremely durable. But even so, all solar panels will develop micro-blemishes over years of being exposed to the elements and will slowly degrade in performance. That’s where your performance warranty comes into play. This warranty, also called a linear production warranty, ensures that your system functions for its given lifespan. Some solar panels only come with a guarantee that they will degrade slow enough to remain efficient for 10–15 years. The solar panels we carry, on the other hand, come with a 30-year linear production warranty.
Here’s the biggest takeaway. Investing in solar panels is both an environmental and a financial investment. So, since you want to remain energy-efficient and save money in the long run, it’s best to go with solar panels with a long warranty. An impressive warranty will tell you that the panels are built to last and that they will still be preserving energy (and keeping money in your wallet) decades down the road.
