For the standard solar module types listed above, Ningbo Ulica Solar Science &Technology Co., Ltd. (Ulica Solar) shall WARRANT its Photovoltaic Solar Modules (MODULES)’s performance (i) starting from the date of sale
to the first customer installing the MODULES or (ii) starting at the latest 12 months after MODULES dispatch from Ulica Solar`s factory, whichever occurs earlier (the WARRANTY START DATE).
1. Twelve-year Limited Product Warranty
Ulica Solar warrants its MODULES, including factory-assembled DC connectors and cables, if any, to be free from defects in materials and workmanship under normal, application, installation, use and service conditions.
If the MODULES fail to conform to this warranty, during a period of Twelve Years (One Hundred Forty Four Months) from WARRANTY START DATE, Ulica Solar shall, at its option, either repair or replace the MODULE,
or refund the then current market price of MODULES. The repair, replacement or refund remedy shall be the sole and exclusive remedy provided under the “Twelve -year Limited Product Warranty” and shall not extend
beyond the period set forth herein. This “Twelve -year Limited Product Warranty” does not warrant a specific power output, which shall be exclusively covered under clause 2 hereinafter.
2. Twenty-five-year Limited Performance Warranty
Ulica Solar warrants that for a period of 25 years commencing on the WARRANTY START DATE loss of power output of the Nominal Power Output specified in the relevant product data sheet and measured at standard
test conditions (STC) for the products shall not exceed:
l For Poly-crystalline Products: 2.5% in the first year, thereafter 0.7% per year, ending with 80% in the 25th year after the WARRANTY START DATE.
l For Mono-crystalline Products: 3.0% in the first year, thereafter 0.68% per year, ending with 80% in the 25th year after the WARRANTY START DATE.
If the MODULE power output does not achieve the above minimum output thresholds during the guarantee period, then such loss in power is determined by Ulica Solar, at its sole and absolute discretion, and shall be
compensated by providing CUSTOMER additional MODULES to make up such loss in power.
“Nominal Power Output” is the power in Watt Peak that a PV-module generates in its Maximum Power Point under STC condition. ”STC” are as follows (a) light spectrum of AM 1.5, (b) an irradiation of 1000 W per m2
and (c) a cell temperature of 25 degree Centigrade. The measurements are carried out in accordance with IEC60904 as tested at the connector or junction box terminals (as applicable) per the calibration and testing
standards of Ulica Solar valid at the date of manufacture of the PV-Modules.
This “Limited Warranty of PV Modules” cover any transportation charge, customs clearance or any other costs for return of MODULES or reshipment of any replaced
MODULES, or cost associated with installation, removal or re-installation of MODULES.
