Evergreen Solar Inc. says it will extend its materials and workmanship warranty on its ES-A and ES-E solar panels to 10 years. The new warranty doubles the existing five-year warranty and is valid for first end-user purchases of both the ES-A and ES-E products on or after Jan. 1, 2011.
According to the company, the warranty extension comes as a result of a successful quality-improvement program that was first implemented by Evergreen Solar more than two years ago. The quality improvement initiative incorporates a reliability improvement program designed to address all aspects of the product life cycle by implementing more robust product safety, reliability monitoring and supplier quality management programs.
