(MENAFN - The Peninsula) Upsolar, a leading international provider of solar PV modules, today announced an expansion to its standard solar module warranty.
Now effective for all Upsolar modules worldwide, the new program doubles the company's previous coverage to protect customers from defects in materials or workmanship for 10 years.
The new coverage program supplements the company's Reinforced Module Warranty, which features six trigger points to guarantee exceptional module output over 25 years.
A global leader in system bankability, Upsolar also partners with reputable insurance organizationPowerGuard Specialty Insurance Servicesto provide non-cancellable, comprehensive coverage. The company's 25-year PowerCLIP„ warranty offers the most comprehensive liability coverage available for solar PV manufacturers. Additionally, the newly introduced PowerWrap„ Systems Performance Guarantee ensures the output of the entire solar project system to deliver additional security for the purchase of a module system.
"Our goal is to set the industry standard for comprehensive coverage to provide customers with a safe, long-term solar investment," said Zhe Jiang, CEO of Upsolar. "Upsolar's reputation as a provider of bankable solar solutions is firmly based on our commitment to product quality and building long-term relationships with our customers. We maintain the upmost transparency on coverage terms for both the consumer as well as the manufacturer, ensuring that there are no surprises in the event of a warranty claim."
Through Upsolar's "Excellence at Each Step" manufacturing process, each module is verified to meetInternational Electrochemical Commission(IEC) safety andUnderwriters Laboratory(UL) reliability standards, undergoing rigorous lab and field testing by independent verification bodies before deployment. This meticulous quality and performance assurance process was recently validated during open field testing byPhoton International, where the Upsolar's UP-M220P polycrystalline module achieved the highest performance rating for two consecutive months. As well, Upsolar was one of only five global companies to receive a "very good" rating through the independently operated German -ko-Test in 2010, and continues to be recognized as a leader in production quality.
"We take great steps both in the lab and in the field to ensure product performance and reliability," added Jiang. "This type of success doesn't come easily, but is crucial to achieving industry credibility as we make strides to lead the charge in the global solar market."
