Your SunPower Warranty is the Best in the Business

  • by

You already know that choosing to go solar means that you can enjoy clean energy, reduce dependence on fossil fuels, and save big on your electric bill for up to 30 years. That means you’ll want to make sure to protect your SunPower solar system investment. 

As a SunPower authorized dealer, purchasing a system from CM Solar Electric means you can access the most comprehensive warranty in the solar industry. Our Complete Confidence Warranty provides one warranty for your entire system, not just your panels. You never have to wonder which company you can depend on if or when you have a problem with your system. 

Solar warranties typically consist of two key factors: 

Power: The power output of all solar panels diminishes over time. Understanding your product’s degradation rate (stated in the warranty document) gives you a clear sense of the power you’ll be guaranteed for a designated amount of your panels’ lifespan. If a panel’s output is lower than promised, the manufacturer will replace, repair or reimburse you for the panel. SunPower’s solar panel degradation rate is the lowest in the industry.2 We guarantee that your panels won’t lose more than 8 percent of their original direct current power output over 25 years. Conventional panels, meanwhile, typically lose at least 17 percent during the same period of time. 

Product: In the rare event that a solar panel suddenly stops working correctly due to defects in materials or workmanship, the product warranty will likely cover it.

Some solar companies combine these elements into separate warranties, or combine products from different manufacturers, which can lead to multiple warranties spanning multiple periods of time.  This is meant to confuse customers so that if something does go wrong, they’ll spend the cost to replace it rather than have to sift through multiple documents to determine if an element is covered. As a Sunpower provider, we use only parts and engineering all created by or for SunPower, so there’s no doubt that the warranty covers the hardware on your roof and the workmanship that put it there.

Likewise, many other solar warranties only cover the solar panels. But there’s more to your solar system than just the panels! The SunPower Complete Confidence Warranty covers your entire system for 25 years. Monitoring hardware and storage is covered for 10 years – and the only reason for less coverage is because the technology is continually innovating and may require upgrades to continue to ensure a solid performance.  

Why are SunPower panels so durable?

Our panels are built with a copper foundation that’s meant to withstand corrosion and weathering better than other panels. The silicon in the anti-reflective glass allows light to bounce back into the panel and harvest power as efficiently as possible. This is true even on cloudy days! 

Why choose SunPower? 

CM Solar Electric has a combined 25 years of experience in system engineering, design, and installation. Our team works with you not only at the beginning of your solar journey, but also along the way. We’ll be happy to answer any questions that may come up, and as long as SunPower panels are in your home, we’ll be able to provide a hassle-free replacement, repair or reimbursement for any defective panel or part covered by your warranty. If your system’s not performing up to standard, a certified installation contractor can help fix the issue.
