Lowest claims, leading warranty
UNPRECEDENTED SAVINGS, MORE ECONOMIC SECURITY, AND GREATER ENERGY AUTONOMY FOR CONSUMERS
While the best warranty is one that customers never need to call on, REC products are the closest to this utopia in the solar industry, boasting the lowest claims rate: from more than 4 million REC panels manufactured each year, less than 400 return from the field. REC’s warranties reflect this leadership and premium quality.
REC ProTrust warranty from REC Certified Solar Professional installers:
REC’s ProTrust Warranty covers product, performance, and labor – and is exclusively offered by REC Certified Solar Professional installers. End customers with installations up to 25 kW enjoy maximum comfort and peace of mind knowing that they have a 25 year warranty for each of product, performance, and labor. Systems between 25-500 kW have the same 25 year product and performance warranties, plus 10 year labor warranty.
REC panels come standard with a 20 year product warranty. This covers any panel defects and promises that the panels will maintain their superior quality for at least 20 years. All panels are eligible for a +5 year product warranty extension, as per the REC ProTrust Warranty.
REC’s performance warranty ensures that REC panels perform exactly as expected to – every year for 25 years. With higher warranted power and higher year-over-year yields, REC customers have greater ROI predictability.
The labour warranty is unique to the REC ProTrust Warranty and gives end customers added protection in the unlikely event that an REC panel needs to be serviced.
