Stranded assets and warranty coverage confusion are consistent problems in home solar. Solar Insure launched its new SolarDetect Program — a longer term warranty product included in the solar sales process — to help protect homeowners and installers.

“Our SolarDetect product was designed to cover the lifetime of a owner’s solar,” said Ara Agopian, Founder and CEO of Solar Insure. “We understand and expect that the integration of our warranty product will actually help solar companies sell their products to homeowners. By adding the warranty, homeowners can now be confident in the long-term return on their investment.”

As with any other technology or innovation, breakdowns can occur. SolarDetect bridges the gap by providing much-needed repairs and support, transforming headaches into hassle-free solar ownership.

Solar Insure partnered with Zurich North America to provide homeowners with the backing of a renowned insurance company.

In addition to the insurance-backed warranty coverage, key features of SolarDetect include:

  • Monitoring support: After an onsite inspection, hardware is installed that will monitor the production of the solar system and the consumption of the homeowner, including a homeowner-facing energy management app. This app will help homeowners learn how they are using their clean energy and where they may be able to save when it comes to their electricity usage.
  • Low monthly fee: SolarDetect says it offers coverage with no hidden expenses when a solar system requires repairs.
  • Legacy system support: Solar Insure recognizes the importance of preserving legacy solar systems. All inverters on their approved vendor list, including reputable companies like Enphase and SolarEdge, can now be covered through the SolarDetect warranty. This initiative ensures that legacy systems continue to operate efficiently, even if a solar manufacturer goes out of business.
