Modern solar electric systems have stood the test of time. The companies that have developed the technology over the past 40 years know what they’re talking about when they provide a 25 year warranty. With stainless steel and anodized aluminum hardware, waterproof electrical connectors, paired with professional installation, the system is designed to easily weather our New England climate.
Ok, but what is not covered under the various warranties? Damage, for example, if a tree falls on the system, is not covered under the warranty. However, your homeowners or business insurance should cover this type of event. The panels have tempered glass and are tested for hail and hurricanes. There are no moving parts, no pumps, no fans, no valves, no motors to replace or oil. The recommended maintenance: don’t do a thing.
It all sounds good, but with no moving parts, how do you know it’s working properly? Every installation includes an online monitoring service (click here to view one in action). And of course, you can always give us a call and we’ll walk you through how a solar energy system would work for your home or business.
