REC Group has unveiled a new ProTrust Warranty for its solar modules, to be exclusively offered by certified REC Solar Professional installers. The REC ProTrust Warranty includes a 25-year product warranty, 25-year performance warranty and up to 25-year labor warranty by REC Certified Solar Professionals. REC Group believes the combo of its quality standards and reliability provides an outstanding warranty package to its customers. With the triple 25-year warranty, REC customers are given peace of mind around their PV installation and the generated clean energy and financial savings for a generation or longer.
REC boasts one of the the lowest claims rates in the industry: From more than 4 million REC panels manufactured each year, fewer than 400 return from the field. This gives REC the freedom to boost these warranty conditions. REC’s standard warranty provides all products with a 20-year product and 25-year performance warranty. REC Group’s Alpha Series provides 20 percent more power than conventional panels, offering up to 380 watt-peak in a 60-cell format.
