Limited Workmanship Warranty
SolarMax REP warrants the installation of Buyer’s photovoltaic modules and inverters (collectively, the “solar system”) to be free from defects in the installation services under normal application, use, and service conditions for a period of twenty-five (25) years from the first date of the original installation. If, during said twenty-five year period, a solar system develops a defect, or otherwise malfunctions or becomes inoperable due to substandard, faulty or improper installation services of SolarMax REP, SolarMax REP will, at no cost to Buyer and as deemed necessary by SolarMax REP in its sole discretion: (i) provide the service to determine the cause of the defect and resolve the defect through re-performance of the defective, substandard, faulty or improper installation services; or (ii) repair or replace a component or the entire solar system, to the extent such work and associated costs are not otherwise covered by the manufacturer’s warranty for the solar system or component thereof. As used herein, a “defect” will exist, and installation shall be deemed “faulty,” if the solar system’s electrical generation output degrades by more than fifteen percent (15%) from its originally rated electrical output, as stated on the Production Guaranty Estimate Form included with the agreement. In addition, SolarMax REP warrants electrical meters and roofing work which SolarMax REP undertakes in connection with the installation services according to the terms and limitations provided in the sections entitled “Meter Warranty” and “Roofing Warranty,” below. The limited warranties in this section and as otherwise provided herein shall transfer from the original Buyer/end user to subsequent buyers/end users for the remainder of the warranty term provided the solar system is not moved or relocated from its originally installed location.
If, in SolarMax REP’s sole judgment, a solar system has been subject to misuse, neglect or accident or has been damaged through abuse, alteration, failure to follow SolarMax REP’s or the manufacturers’ operation or maintenance instructions, or repaired by anyone other than SolarMax REP and its authorized dealers/installers, the warranties herein will not be applicable. These warranties will also not cover damage due to acts of God, power failures, lightning, fire, flood, severe weather, hailstorms, insect and pest infestation, and other events reasonably beyond SolarMax REP’s control. Warranty coverage does not include any transportation costs for return of components or for reshipment of any repaired or replaced components.
Limitations of Warranty and Liability
Electrical meters and roofing work are not included in the foregoing Limited Workmanship Warranty, but are provided according to the terms and limitations provided in the sections entitled “Meter Warranty” and “Roofing Warranty,” below. SolarMax REP makes no warranties whatsoever regarding the component parts of the solar system. However, SolarMax REP does, for solar system components purchased through SolarMax REP, hereby assign and pass through to the system Buyer all manufacturers’ warranties for the component parts of the solar system, to the greatest extent such warranties are assignable. Damage to persons, roofing or other property, or other loss or injury, resulting from defects in the solar system or use thereof shall not be the responsibility of SolarMax REP. SolarMax REP will not under any circumstances be liable for any indirect, special, incidental or consequential damages of any nature, whether based on contract, tort or other legal theory including, without limitation, business interruption costs, removal and/or reinstallation costs, re-procurement costs, repair and/or replacement costs, loss of profit or revenue, loss of data, promotional or manufacturing expenses, overhead charges, injury to business reputation or loss of customers, even if SolarMax REP has been advised of the possibility of such damages.
Some states do not allow the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential damages, so the above limitation or exclusion may not apply to you. In all cases, SolarMax REP’s total liability will be limited to the price of services performed by SolarMax REP. NO IMPLIED STATUTORY WARRANTY OF MERCHANTABILITY OR FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE SHALL APPLY TO SOLARMAX REP’S INSTALLATION SERVICE.
