Panasonic Eco Solutions North America has announced a new 25-year product workmanship warranty on its HIT photovoltaic module. The company says this represents a big step forward in guaranteeing the long-term viability of its HIT product and is one of the longest such warranties for modules in the residential solar market.
Panasonic says that in addition to offering a guarantee that is more than twice as long as some panel manufacturers’ 10-year product warranties, the company also now guarantees 91% of rated power over the 25-year warranty. According to the company, the HIT panel also features a temperature coefficient of -0.258%/C, which reflects recent test results from a third-party safety organization.
“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,” says Dan Silver, president of 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.”
