Panasonic Launches New 25-Year Product Workmanship Warranty for Photovoltaic Module HIT®

• Panasonic now offers one of the longest product workmanship warranty for solar modules in the residential market, with 25 years fully guaranteed. • This warranty, coupled with the rigorous testing protocols of the UL Standard, make the Panasonic HIT® one of the safest long-term investments for homeowners.

Newark, NJ (May 9, 2017) — Panasonic Eco Solutions North America took a big step forward in guaranteeing the long-term viability of its HIT® high-efficiency photovoltaic module, with the introduction of one of the longest product workmanship warranty in the residential solar industry. The warranty for HIT® panels now extends to 25 years, backing up the claim that high-efficiency solar panels are a long-term investment and that they should be treated as such.

Panasonic first entered the solar industry in 1975 and has been revolutionizing solar technology ever since. The innovative heterojunction technology was unveiled in 1990, and Panasonic has meticulously advanced and perfected this high-efficiency solar panel since its inception. With an extensive history in the industry, this product workmanship warranty is the latest example of Panasonic standing behind its products and offering unparalleled guarantees for customers.
"At Panasonic we are proud to not only offer top-of-the-line residential solar panels that will provide huge savings for our customers, but to also stand behind those products and ensure their longevity," said Dan Silver, President, Panasonic Eco Solutions North America. "This 25-year warranty and industry-leading temperature characteristics give our installers yet another asset when advocating for Panasonic HIT® panels to customers."
While most conventional solar panel manufacturers offer 10-year product warranties, Panasonic not only offers a product guarantee that is more than twice as long, but it also now guarantees 91% of rated power over the 25-year warranty, a figure that is significantly better than any other solar module on the market today. Over four decades of R&D, rigorous quality standards and 20 years of mass production have resulted in Panasonic's well-earned reputation for extreme reliability and exceptional performance.

The HIT® photovoltaic panel also features an industry leading temperature coefficient of -0.258%/C, which reflects recent test results from a 3rd party safety organization. This speaks to the ability of the panels to maintain optimal performance even in high temperature. Panasonic's unrivaled 25-year product warranty, coupled with this advanced temperature co-efficiency standard, will make the HIT® high-efficiency photovoltaic module a secure and profitable long-term investment for homeowners across the country.

Easy monitoring with weather sensors from Lufft

Easy monitoring with weather sensors from Lufft

Professional weather sensors form the heart of large solar plants supporting their operation and performance. Lufft was the first manufacturer to combine several sensors in one housing, bringing the largest multiparameter weather sensor family with 19 members into being. Many of them are well-suited for solar site assessment and continuous monitoring. The most commonly used one is the WS600 delivering data on temperature, air pressure, wind, relative humidity and precipitation. Through its open protocol, it can easily be attached to radiation sensors e.g. from Kipp&Zonen. Other models have an integrated Silicon, Second Class or Secondary Standard radiation sensor.
