Other solar installers may be left shaking after this New York Times article, but we’re staying totally calm and collected. In the 100,000 panels we have installed not one of them has failed to perform. In fact, every Solar Forward panel we have installed has overperformed its rated capacity. It is no wonder the SunPower products we install have the best 25 year warranty in the industry.
SunPower performs a multitude of tests on their panels, to mimic the harshest real world conditions they may endure. This includes tests to replicate a barrage of 90 mile per hour winds, high humidity and heat, as well as rapid temperature fluctuations.
Think of it this way: while the chances of you writing a New York Times bestseller are 220 to 1, the chances of you having to act on your SunPower warranty are 39,000 to 1.
