BURNABY, B.C., CANADA, June 15, 2004 - Xantrex customers can now enjoy the benefits and peace of mind offered by upgraded warranty and new performance guarantee packages for its PV Series grid-tie solar inverters installed in the U.S. and Canada.


Xantrex has extended its standard warranty for its PV Series from one year to five years. For customers who want additional coverage, the company is introducing new extended warranty packages, which provide the option to purchase 5- or 10-year extensions to the standard warranty for a total of 10 or 15 years of coverage.

Xantrex is also introducing a premium service offering called the Performance Guarantee, which can run concurrently with the standard warranty or for 10- and 15-year total coverage periods. The Performance Guarantee supplements standard warranty provisions plus enhanced features including:
Priority on-site response times by Xantrex
Guaranteed system uptime levels
Compensation for system downtime beyond the 3% allowable in the performance guarantee. Compensation escalates based on rising interconnection and inflation rates.

"Xantrex is committed to providing world-class service to support our world-class products," said Al-Karim Kara, Xantrex Vice President, Customer Service. "Our new service packages are the best way for our customers to protect their investment and to ensure top performance from their PV Series systems."
