Majority of solar panels in the market came with a 25 year performance warranty. This is generally made up of a guaranteed electrical production of 90% for 10 years and rated power output of 80% for 25 years.
This means, if your solar panels have fallen below 90% in the first 10 years you are entitled to claim on the solar panel manufacturers warranty for replacement of your solar panels.
The process to claim the panel warranty is to:
Have your panels tested by specialised equipment that measures the panels production – we have one
Submit the results to the manufacture, or have someone do this for you – like us!
As we are in early days of Solar, the life span after the warranty expiries has yet to be proven. Odds are that the solar panels will keep generating a significant amount of electricity. Whether you upgrade to the latest technology in solar panels in the future will be a decision made on savings.
What Customers are saying about Gold Coast Energy
"Have just had a 2kW system installed on my garage by Gold Coast Energy, after being rejected by another company saying they could not do the install as my house had tin tiles. Thank goodness Gold Coast Energy made the effort to come out and come up with an easier option for us to be able to get Solar. Wonderful friendly communication and very helpful in explaining how it all works."
