Durability and lifespan matter when you are planning to spend thousands of dollars on home improvement projects, such as having solar panels installed on your home. If you are going to invest in solar electric system, then it is essential that you choose equipment that is built to last.

Proven Technology, Built to Last

The good news is that the right brands and installation techniques can give you a solar system that will provide plenty of energy for your family. Not only will you have access to clean energy, but it is free energy when the solar power system is paid in full.

One of the myths about the solar industry is that the technology is so young that there hasn’t been enough time for proper testing and innovation. But, the truth is that the panels that are produced today are built in a way that ensures durability for decades and come with a 25 year manufacturer warranty. Solar panel technology was developed over 60 years ago, and things have just gotten better over time.

In fact, the efficiency degradation is so minimal with a quality solar power system, that you can expect the panels to perform at nearly the same levels a few years after installation. Over time, there might be a slight change in the amount of energy that is produced, but it will still be plenty of energy to keep your household online. Most manufactures ensure that the panels will perform with 80% – 88% efficiency 25 years later.

Of course, the performance varies depending on the products that you choose. The best solution is to pick a trusted professional in the industry. At the same time, select solar panels that come with warranties and guarantees.

Minimal Costs for Maintenance

There’s no need to worry about expensive maintenance costs after the solar panels are in place. Minimal intervention is needed, just a little bit of cleaning on an occasional basis. If a panel fails due to workmanship or design, then it is usually covered by the manufacturer warranty.
