SolarWorld has introduced an extended workmanship warranty on its new lineup of silver and black Next Generation Sunmodule Plus solar modules. The warranty covers the workmanship of the solar panels for 10 years, up from the previous five years, and retroactively covers all panels delivered since Jan. 1.
Initiation of the extended workmanship warranty accompanies the debut of the company's Next Generation Sunmodule Plus solar panels, featuring two new frame technologies. The first frame, called the 2.0 frame, is available in both mono- and poly-crystalline panels and features four possible grounding locations. It is ideal for top-down mounting methods, according to SolarWorld.
The second frame, called the 2.5 frame, features a profile with an extended flange. It is available with poly panels and features eight grounding locations, making it compatible with top-down and bottom-up methods, the company says.
