SCHOTT Solar Extends POLY Module Warranty to 25 Years
September 3, 2009 (Albuquerque, NM) -- SCHOTT Solar today announced that it is extending the performance warranty on its Solar POLY™ Modules from 20 years to 25 years.

SCHOTT POLY™ modules are among the industry leaders in power output tolerances and provide high-energy output with unparalleled stability. The SCHOTT POLY™ module produces power classes of 225, 220, 200, 217, and 210. The output performance tolerance of SCHOTT Solar’s high quality modules is minus zero watts (as measured at the end of the production process). This means every module will meet or exceed the minimum power specification, thus ensuring every watt paid for is delivered.

“This warranty extension further reinforces SCHOTT Solar’s position as a high quality manufacturer of photovoltaic modules,” said Mark Finocchario, President and CEO of SCHOTT Solar. “We are able offer our customers a 25-year performance warranty because of our strict manufacturing controls. Independent tests have proven time and again the excellent longevity and performance stability of SCHOTT Solar’s quality modules.”

Expanding production to meet growing demand in U.S. market

In July, SCHOTT Solar expanded production at its state-of-the-art U.S. manufacturing facility in Albuquerque, New Mexico by starting production on the facility’s second concentrating solar power (CSP) receiver line. With the launch of the second production line, the facility can produce enough receivers to meet the demands of up to 400 megawatts (MW) of CSP power plants per year.

SCHOTT Solar’s Albuquerque facility is the first in the U.S. to produce receivers used in parabolic trough, utility-scale, concentrated solar power plants (CSP), and the first in the world to produce both receivers for CSP along side photovoltaic modules.

SCHOTT Solar also announced in July that it had received CSA International Certification for its SCHOTT POLY™ photovoltaic (PV) module produced in Albuquerque, NM, opening up a new product line for the company to sell into power projects both in the United States and Canada. CSA International tests products for compliance to national and international standards, and issues certification marks for qualified products. It is a Nationally Recognized Testing Laboratory (NRTL) and one of North America’s leading centers for testing and certifying solar energy equipment.
