Why should you choose an REC Certified Solar Professional installer?

REC Alpha Pure R Solar Panels

The REC Certified Solar Professional Programme was created to provide many advantages to both installers and end-customers. Not every installer can call themselves an ‘REC Certified Solar Professional’: members of the Program are carefully selected to undergo a unique installer certification program. Through this, REC ensures that solar installers are equipped with the know-how and best practices to install REC panels and can assure you that, in addition to high-quality REC solar panels, you will receive a high-quality solar installation.

Quality product, Quality installation

Knowing that not only is the panel of high quality, but also that the person installing it is highly skilled and trained, gives you greater peace of mind.
Added comfort
Take comfort in knowing that your solar installer has been carefully selected, trained, and certified by REC. To be an ‘REC Certified Solar Professional’, the installer must be able to offer best-in-class service and reliability.
Extended warranty
By choosing an REC Certified Solar Professional, you can benefit from REC’s unique REC ProTrust Warranty package at no extra cost. The REC ProTrust Warranty gives you 5 years extra product warranty cover (25 years total) and up to 25-year labor cover* in addition to 25-year performance warranty coverage.

*Subject to conditions. See REC website for more details

The REC ProTrust Warranty​

REC 25 Year ProTrust Warranty

While the best warranty is one that customers never need to call on, REC products are close to this utopia, boasting a very low claims rate; from more than 4 million REC panels manufactured each year, less than 400 return from the field as defective. REC’s warranty offering reflects this premium quality.

REC´s ProTrust Warranty package covers product, performance, and labor – and is exclusively offered by REC Certified Solar Professional installers. This means unprecedented savings, more economic security, and greater energy autonomy for you.

Product Warranty
Covers panel defects and promises superior quality for at least 20 years. All panels are eligible for a +5 year product warranty extension, as part of the REC ProTrust Warranty
Performance Warranty
REC´s Performance Warranty ensures that REC panels perform exactly as expected– every year for 25 years. With higher warranted power and higher annual yields, you can have greater ROI predictability.
Labor Warranty
The Labor Warranty is unique to the REC ProTrust package and gives you added protection in the unlikely event that an REC panel needs to be serviced or replaced.
