Panasonic extends product warranty for solar modules HIT® to 25 years of 20 years of production of photovoltaic module HIT®
Panasonic extends the product warranty for its highly efficient photovoltaic modules HIT® in Europe to 25 years. With a warranty extension of ten years, the global electronics group and manufacturer of highly efficient solar module HIT® customers offers even more security in the acquisition and operation of photovoltaic plants. The warranty extension applies to all HIT® modules, which have been installed in Europe since 1 January 2017. This is connected to a new online registration procedure. Customers who wish to apply for a 25-year product warranty can register on the Panasonic website. They then receive from the manufacturer a personalized guarantee for their photovoltaic system with their specific properties.
“The 25-year product warranty underpins our commitment to the manufacturing and supply of solar modules with the highest reliability and quality for our growing customer base in Europe,” said Daniel Roca, senior business developer at Panasonic. “Since the introduction of the HIT® modules in 1997, the product has earned an excellent reputation for its reliability and high manufacturing standards. The warranty extension reinforces this reputation and gives the European installers and consumers who use our high-performance modules in their plants full confidence And a good feeling. “
Extremely low guarantee rates
The assurance of the highest quality standards is a priority for Panasonic. For example, in addition to the compulsory tests such as the standards IEC 61215 and IEC 61730, some 20 voluntary internal resistance and safety tests are still being carried out before the launch of new products. This and the consistent quality assurance in production mean that the guarantee rate of the HIT® modules is extremely low. In January 2017 it was 0.0035 percent. This means that only 139 modules of 3.94 million modules HIT® were used.
20 years of production of photovoltaic module HIT®
The warranty extension is a special year for Panasonic. In 2017, the company celebrates the 20th anniversary of the serial production of the photovoltaic module HIT®. Since launching the market, Panasonic has been manufacturing over one billion solar cells that are processed in the modules and which produce clean energy to private individuals, businesses and organizations around the world.
