Risen solar panels: now with 25-year product warranty

Risen Energy announced last week that it has increased its product warranty from 15 to 25 years on selected solar panels in Australia.

This is a big deal for Australian solar customers.

Why?

It’s because most solar panels come with a product warranty of 10 to 15 years.  Until now, there’s only been a handful of premium solar panel brands that have a longer product warranty.  In fact, the number of premium panels with a 25-year product warranty can be counted pretty much on one hand!

What’s not to love? Good looks, great price, unbeatable warranty

So now there’s an affordable solar panel brand – that offers good looks and great performance – with an unbeatable 25-year product warranty.  That’s great news for Australian households and businesses wanting the best value from their solar dollar!

But don’t all solar panels come with a 25-year warranty?

The answer to this is YES – all solar panels come with a 25-year performance warranty.  But this is different from the product warranty.

Product warranty: why it’s the most important warranty

The most important warranty for solar panels is NOT the performance warranty but the product warranty. The product warranty is the warranty that you are most likely to claim on if there’s a fault with your panels.

The 25-year performance warranty sounds great but it’s not worth much.  It simply tells you what level of power output your panels should produce at the end of 25 years, compared to their day 1 efficiency.

Has anyone been able to claim on the 25-year performance warranty?

No doubt a few people have tried to claim on the performance warranty. Chances are they didn’t get very far with their claim. That’s because it’s notoriously hard to prove.  It’s more an indication of panel degradation rather than a rock-solid warranty that you can rely on.

That’s why the product warranty for solar panels is so important.  Because if a panel has a fault or there’s problem with the panel wiring or a crack appears, you can claim on the panel product warranty.  The solar panels performance is pretty much useless in these situations.

Risen solar panels with a 25-year product warranty

The new 25-year product warranty applies to selected Risen solar panel brands installed from February 1, 2022.

Risen solar panels with a 25-year product warranty are:

  • Titan S RSM40-8-xxxMB
  • Titan S RSM40-8-xxxM with black frame
  • RSM130-8-xxxMB
  • RSM130-8-xxxM with black frame

This 10-year extension to the product warranty speaks volumes about the confidence Risen has in the quality of its panels.

In fact, according to Risen Group’s Head of Product Development, Danny Song, improvements in material and module processes, as well as the company’s 20+ years in manufacturing enabled the extension.

This is good news for anyone thinking of putting Risen solar panels on their roof!

Are Risen solar panels any good?

Risen solar panels are excellent panels with an efficiency rating of up to 21.3 per cent, wattage per panel of up to 390 watts, and excellent anti-corrosive properties.

These stats compared favorably with premium panel brands that typically have an efficiency rating of 21-22 per cent, a similar wattage panel and equivalent climate-resistant qualities.

When it comes to toughness and reliability, Risen panels lead the pack.  Their modules are designed to withstand the harshest climatic conditions like severe salt mist and blown sand resistance, making them ideal for properties in coastal and desert regions.

What about Risen as a company?

Risen Energy is a Tier 1 solar panel manufacturer based in China.  Founded in 1986, it is one of the longest established solar panel companies in the world.

Risen established its presence in Australia in 2008, supplying solar panels and energy storage systems to the residential market, commercial market, and utility developers.

Today, Risen is one of the top five panel suppliers in the Australian rooftop sector.  It is also successful in the solar farm sector with 100MW-plus solar farms in Queensland and Western Australia. Risen won the best preforming solar farm in Australian in 2021.

 

Risen has two customer service offices in Australia: one in Melbourne, the other in Brisbane.

Risen solar panels: the verdict

Risen solar panels have always been a stand-out choice for performance, durability, and quality.

Now, with the new 25-year product warranty, Risen solar panels provide a huge leap in additional value that’s hard to beat.

That’s why at SolarRun we recommend Risen solar panels when performance, reliability and value are top considerations.
