Norway-based REC has debuted a new 25-year linear power output warranty and 10-year material and workmanship product warranty on its PV modules. The new terms guarantee customers 5.6% more power output, the company says.
Each REC module is now guaranteed to provide at least 97% effective output during the first year of operation. This is an improvement in comparison to the previous warranty, which guaranteed only 90% performance. The maximum decline is now 0.7% each year, providing a minimum performance level of 80.2% by the end of the 25th year of operation. The material and workmanship warranty is almost doubled from 63 months to 10 full years.
