25 Year Extended Product Warranty
As a Certified Installer, all REC systems installed by Solaray come with an extended 25-year ProTrust Product Warranty.
This parts and labour warranty is a full replacement warranty, meaning everything is covered in the case of a warranty claim including labour, shipping and the replacement panel(s).
The warranty is typically serviced by the local Solaray support team, therefore, you will get fast & easy support for any warranty claims – not an overseas company or a call centre.
Q Cells offers a transferable warranty, so if you sell your property, the warranty transfers to the new owner.
25-Year Power Output Guarantee
As well as the product warranty, REC solar panels come with a 25-year power output guarantee.
REC Alpha Peak solar panels include a 25 Year Limited Warranty for Power Output. In this warranty, REC firstly guarantees that for a period of one (1) year from the date of purchase the actual power output of the module will be no less than 98% of the labelled power output. This is much less energy loss than the Industry standard.
Also, from the second year, the actual power output will decline annually by no more than 0.25% for a period of the remaining 24 years. By year 25 REC panels are warrantied to still supply at least 92% of their original performance. Again this is less loss than standard solar panels. Of course, with cheap Chinese panels, the loss can be very rapid.
In 2015, the Federal Environment Minister requested an urgent review of panel quality with cheaper panels lasting only five to seven years despite government rebate support being based on an average panel life of 15 years.
