For property owners considering solar power, there are a few main factors in the decision-making process. First, will you receive enough savings in electricity to justify outfitting your home with solar power? Second, will your solar panels last long enough for your savings to exceed your investment? In short, how much money will your solar energy save you, and for how long will the system function properly?

For residents of Connecticut, the answer to the first question is usually quite clear. Connecticut has the highest electricity prices in the continental United States. Yes, your solar system will save you a lot of money – but for how long?

Our 25-Year Warranty

When you choose to work with Green Power Energy, your solar power system will come with a 25-year warranty, so you can rest assured that your solar investment will continue saving you money for a long time. We’re able to provide a 25-year warranty because of the high-quality products we use.

In the solar industry, most manufacturers say their solar panels last at least 25 years. You might be wondering what that means. Is your solar panel unable to convert sunlight to energy after year 25? Fortunately, that answer is no. 

Typically, solar panel manufacturers anticipate their panels will function at 80% of the efficiency they had in year one. In other words, they still work after year 25, only at a reduced rate which is deemed significant. 

Our Products

Green Power Energy prides itself on our high-quality people and products. When you work with us, you can rest assured that all components on your system are top-notch.

First, we’ll look at our LG NeOn panels. LG’s NeOn solar panels are industry-leading and have thousands of 5-star reviews. In addition to their 25-year warranty, their modules are guaranteed to produce at least 86% of their original power output. After the panel absorbs sunlight, the energy is converted to AC energy so that it can be used in your property. 

The energy is converted to AC in our inverters and optimizers from SolarEdgewinner of the prestigious 2016 Intersolar Award and the renowned 2018 Edison Award. In addition to the awards, our SolarEdge equipment comes with a 25-year warranty. It’s important for every single component of your system to be high-quality. We make sure we purchase our equipment from the best manufacturers. 

Now that we’ve covered the electrical components of your solar system, let’s discuss the mounting material. In order to achieve high marks in both function and aesthetics, we use Unirac Flashloc. Again, this component is covered by a 25-year warranty. 

Solar Power You Can Count On

As you decide exactly how to upgrade your home with solar power, one thing you can be sure of is that your solar system will be producing clean energy for the next 25 years. It’s also important to remember that Green Power Energy’s 25-year warranty also comes with complimentary follow-up support to help you through any questions or concerns that arise in the future.
