OPEL Solar Inc., a supplier of high concentration photovoltaic solar panels and solar tracker systems, has secured a warranty agreement with Energi Insurance Services and has completed an independent tracker technology assessment conducted by BEW Engineering.
In addition, the company says it has completed a professional engineering validated structural analysis and wind tunnel testing with both Lauren Engineers and Constructors, Inc. and Rowan Williams Davies and Irwin Inc. Together, these achievements provide OPEL Solar customers and partners with complete independent certification and warranty insurance for its TF-800 solar tracking systems, according to the company.
The agreement with Energi Insurance Services, Inc. is to purchase Energi's manufacturer's product warranty insurance. This coverage will provide an insurance backstop to OPEL's warranty on the TF-800 solar tracking systems. OPEL's solar trackers have a five-year limited warranty with an optional extension to 10 years of coverage.
With Energi's warranty insurance coverage, OPEL Solar customers gain additional protection against materials and equipment and get the added confidence of a rapid and complete system fix, if needed, OPEL says.
