Warranty of Imported Solar Products
Warranty of Imported Solar Products:
Generally a solar system is consist of following imported items whose warranty is catered by manufacturer via importer/supplier.
- Solar PV panels – 12 years product warranty and 25 years performance warranty
- Solar Inverter – 5 years product warranty (extendable)
- Batteries – 1 or 2 years product warranty depending on type with life upto ten years
Typically the warranties of all above products are same for all brands available in Pakistan market, but no one is aware of actual terms and conditions specifically for solar PV panels, even not all importers are aware completely for warranty terms/claims. Furthermore solar installation companies also lack the technical expertise and essential testing equipment need to claim the warranty.
Limitless Solutions uses certified testing equipment especially required to collect the data of solar panel performance and analysis reports are prepared to claim the warranties.
