WINAICO Solar Panels:
High quality solar panels with great components and guaranteed production
WINAICO solar panels have set them selves apart from other manufacturers in primarily two ways: Winaico has strict quality control in the assembly that ensures the end product is of the highest possible standard. Secondly the quality of the components used in its products.
The quality of components is monitored and managed at every stage of the production process. With this rigorous oversight of all aspects of the production process, WINAICO is confident that it delivers a ‘perfectly assembled photovoltaic ( Solar panel) made with only the best components available on the market.’
The company prides itself in the selection of its partners. All components that make up a WINAICO solar panel are manufactured by industry leaders in their own fields. Glass is manufactured by Saint Gobain, and the foils and backsheets are made by Bridgestone and DuPont. WINAICO Solar is a subsidiary of Taiwanese Win Win Precision Technology, which has its origins in the semiconductor industry, and the knowledge and experience to understand what is involved in manufacturing high-grade silicon products. The silicon photovoltaic (PV) cells within the modules themselves are highly pure and each is individually flash-tested for faults and weaknesses to guarantee high yield over the lifetime of the system–25+ years.
WINAICO Solar – Performance Guarantee
–WINAICO uses only branded components of outstanding quality in its solar panels

-Linear performance warranty of 25 years. This means that having two or three ‘tiers’ of warranty as is the industry standard (90% of nameplate panel capacity guaranteed for the first 10 years, and 80% guaranteed for the next 15 years), WINAICO’s panels are guaranteed at about 94% for the first 5 years, 90% for the first 10, 87% for the first 15, etc. This more finely graduated warranty system means that system owners can have higher, more specific expectations about their panels’ performance than with many other installers.
