Every panel from Evergreen comes with a 25 year warranty, has all the major certifications for the US, Canada and Europe, and a 0% to +5% Tolerance.
Every panel from Evergreen comes with a complete computerized print out of it’s results from the Flash Test Light Simulator using a DOE National Testing Laboratory reference cell. The same used by every other factory in the world.
What is a cosmetic imperfection. From approx. 5 ft. it is invisible. It is found on about 5% of these modules. The other 95 panels out of 100 don’t have any visible cosmetic imperfections at all, at least not that can be seen by the naked eye. This imperfection (generally about 1 cm by .5 cm) will only be visible on a couple of cells) again the other 95 out of 100 panels will look normal.
Nearly all modules will develop cosmetic imperfections after the first couple of years in the sunlight. Most people seem to forget this. Nothing stays the same.
Sun Electronics, like many major German and U.S. manufacturers and distributors also sell modules without certification. These modules are safe, especially when they are used for off grid applications, otherwise, I can assure you, companies like AEE, Schott, Evergreen, GE, BP, and many others would not be selling them.
Some U.S. distributors and dealers who either can’t find them, don’t have the time to start searching and learning, don’t want to change or maybe want to take advantage of the public’s inexperience and use it for sort of a solar mud slinging fight). Instead they they try to damage the reputation of the product and those distributors and dealers who sell it. That’s is a big mistake because the truth will always come out.
These SUN modules as we call them, all come with the same test reports on each module. Its funny but they actually have almost 0 cosmetic imperfections. But the real proof is their nearly flawless record of perfect performance. We have been selling them for the last 8 years. I can’t even count the numbers, a rough guess would be a couple of megawatts at least. Maybe 36 – 40 ft. containers a year! Number of returned modules? Approximately 6. We warranty every one of them with a 20 year warranty identical to Evergreen’s except they have a +5 and a –5%tolerance. AEE warranties their non UL modules for 10.
If anyone was ever dissatisfied we would refund their money or exchange modules in a second. Please look at our 98% approval testimonials, mostly for these modules, as a Power Seller on eBay. It really bothers me when companies spread lies about our their companies (41 years in solar and their in the next state but somehow I just missed that?), our company (a bunch of trailer trash) and our products (you can’t get insurance on our modules).
THIS IS AMAZING
Did you know that on the Fed. tax credit for solar you can install the systems yourself and even use non UL modules and get the 30% credit. That saves the cost of installation and gets you a solar system price decrease of about 70% even if you live in a state without any incentives to go solar. You have too know what your doing of course. However, it can be done. There are more educational courses out there right now than you can shake a stick at.
