Canadian Solar Warranty

25 Year Insurance Backed Warranty

In addition to a comprehensive Standard Canadian Solar Warranty, Canadian Solar has purchased product warranty insurance to “back-stop” the product warranty. This insurance applies to the 10-year warranty against workmanship and material defects and the 25-year power output performance warranty. The standard Canadian Solar warranty is as follows:

10-year warranty for material and workmanship, and a linear  power performance warranty that guarantees the actual power output of its modules will be no less than 97% of the labelled power output during the first year, and will decline by no more than 0.7% annually so that by the end of year 25 the actual power output will be no less than 80% of the module’s labelled power output.

This insurance policy, purchased through PowerGuard Specialty Insurance Services, is underwritten by the following three reputable investment grade insurance carriers:

– Companion Property Casualty Insurance Company (A.M. Best Credit Rating: A VIII)

– International Insurance Company of Hannover Limited (A.M. Best Credit Rating: A XV)

– RSUI Indemnity Company (A.M. Best Credit Rating: A XII)
