Panasonic Eco Solutions North America took a big step forward in guaranteeing the long-term viability of its HIT high-efficiency photovoltaic module, with the introduction of one of the longest product workmanship warranty in the residential solar industry. The warranty for HIT panels now extends to 25 years, backing up the claim that high-efficiency solar panels are a long-term investment and that they should be treated as such.
Panasonic first entered the solar industry in 1975 and has been revolutionizing solar technology ever since. The innovative heterojunction technology was unveiled in 1990, and Panasonic has meticulously advanced and perfected this high-efficiency solar panel since its inception. With an extensive history in the industry, this product workmanship warranty is the latest example of Panasonic standing behind its products and offering unparalleled guarantees for customers.
“At Panasonic we are proud to not only offer top-of-the-line residential solar panels that will provide huge savings for our customers, but to also stand behind those products and ensure their longevity,” said Dan Silver, President, Panasonic Eco Solutions North America. “This 25-year warranty and industry-leading temperature characteristics give our installers yet another asset when advocating for Panasonic HIT® panels to customers.”
While most conventional solar panel manufacturers offer 10-year product warranties, Panasonic not only offers a product guarantee that is more than twice as long, but it also now guarantees 91% of rated power over the 25-year warranty, a figure that is significantly better than any other solar module on the market today. Over four decades of R&D, rigorous quality standards and 20 years of mass production have resulted in Panasonic’s well-earned reputation for extreme reliability and exceptional performance.
The HIT photovoltaic panel also features an industry leading temperature coefficient of -0.258%/C, which reflects recent test results from a 3rd party safety organization. This speaks to the ability of the panels to maintain optimal performance even in high temperature. Panasonic’s unrivaled 25-year product warranty, coupled with this advanced temperature co-efficiency standard, will make the HIT high-efficiency photovoltaic module a secure and profitable long-term investment for homeowners across the country.
