Solar panel longevity is a topic we answer questions about frequently. Given the financial investment involved with installing solar panels for your home, it’s understandable you’d want to know how long that investment will hold up! Fortunately, our team has a great answer to this question.
Solar panels are built to last. Plus, with the panels’ warranty, you’ll enjoy a high-quality, renewable energy source for decades to come without worry should your panels require repair or replacement. Let’s discuss more on how long you can expect your solar panels to hold up in South Carolina, as well as how a warranty can provide a good buffer just in case.
How Long Can You Expect Solar Panels to Last?
Solar panels are made from materials engineered to last for decades. That being said, it’s likely you will be able to get the most from your solar panels in the first 25-30 years. The panels POWERHOME SOLAR installs can be expected to still produce at a minimum of 85 percent of their original capacity after 25 years.1 In other words, you’ll be able to generate plenty of renewable energy for your home in the decades to come!
The panels should hold up well to the elements thanks to their durability, and with the powerful monocrystalline structure of POWERHOME SOLAR’s American-made panels, you’ll be able to produce solar electricity efficiently.
Understanding Your Solar Warranty
Solar panels are made tough, but even the unexpected can occur. To address this, there are two different parts of a solar panel warranty: equipment and performance. From here on out, we’ll outline the warranties on the top-tier solar panels we install.
The solar panels we install come with a minimum 25-year linear power performance warranty as well as a 25-year product workmanship guarantee.1 What do these mean?
- Power Performance Warranty: As mentioned above, you can expect the solar panels POWERHOME SOLAR installs to still produce at 85 percent of their original capacity after 25 years.1 However, should a panel fail in a way that impacts your solar performance, this warranty ensures that our team will replace that panel.
- Product Workmanship Guarantee: This warranty concerns the actual construction of the solar panel. Though solar panels are generally low-maintenance, if a part of the panel fails or breaks due to manufacturing defects or premature wear and tear, the warranty will allow you to receive a new or refurbished panel up to 25 years after installation.1
