MAYSUN SOLAR (under the Maysun trademark) warrants that the above listed MODULES, including factory-assembled DC connectors and cables will perform fully compliant to the specifications under normal application, installation, utilization and service conditions. If MODULES fail to conform to this warranty, during the period of 12 years from the WARRANTY START DATE, MAYSUN SOLAR (under the Maysun trademark) will, at its option, either repair or replace the product, or refund the price of the MODULES paid by the CUSTOMER according to the current market price. The repair or replacement or refund remedy set forth in this clause 2 shall be the sole and exclusive remedy provided under the “Limited Product Warranty” and shall not extend beyond the twelve-year product warranty period set forth herein. This “Limited Product Warranty” does not warrant a specific power output, which shall be exclusively covered under clause 3 Limited Peak Power Warranty.
For all MODULES: the peak power output specified in relevant product data sheet has a tolerance ±5W based on MAYSUN SOLAR (under the Maysun trademark) ex-works testing data.
For all MODULES: the loss of power output should be less than 3 % in the first year, and thereafter, the power output degrades linearly ending more than 80% in the 25th year after the WARRANTY START DATE.
If there is any excess power output loss, and it is determined by MAYSUN SOLAR (under the Maysun trademark) (at its sole and absolute discretion) to be due to defects in material or workmanship, MAYSUN SOLAR (under the Maysun trademark) will, at its sole option:
provide additional MODULES to the CUSTOMER or replace the defective MODULE(s) to make up for such loss in power or refund the percentage of the cost of the MODULES (according to the current market price when CUSTOMER makes the claim) to the CUSTOMER,corresponding to the power loss discrepancy from the warranted value stated above.
(2) The “Limited Product Warranties” and the “Limited Peak Power Warranty” do not apply to any MODULES which have been subjected to:
Misuse, abuse, neglect or accident in any of the storage, transportation, handling, installation, application, use of service or alteration; or Non-observance of MAYSUN SOLAR (under the Maysun trademark) Photovoltaic Modules Installation Manual;Repair or modifications by someone other than a service technician approved by MAYSUN SOLAR (under the Maysun trademark);Power failure surges, lightning, flood, fire, accidental breakage, actions of third parties, or other events outside MAYSUN SOLAR (under the Maysun trademark) reasonable control,including without limitation any technological or physical event or condition that is not reasonably known or understood at the time the CUSTOMER purchased the MODULES;Damages due to abnormal environmental conditions, including, without limitation, improper voltage or its fluctuation, acid rain, mobile or marine environment and other pollution and damages due to defective construction base on which the MODULES are mounted;Damages due to external corrosion, mold discoloration or the like; Damages due to movement from their original installation.
(3) Warranty claims will not be honored and immediately rejected if the type or serial number of the MODULES have been altered, removed or made illegible.

The final optional right in connection with test institute shall be owned by MAYSUN SOLAR (under the Maysun trademark).
The warranties herein extends only to the original CUSTOMER and, if and so long as the MODULES remain installed at the site where they were first installed, any person to whom title to the MODULES has been transferred.
“Nominal Power in Datasheet” is the power in Watt peak that a PV-module generates in its Maximum Power Point under STC condition. “STC” are as follows:
•Light spectrum of AM 1.5,
•An irradiation of 1000 W per m2 and
•A cell temperature of 25 °C centigrade at right angle irradiation.
The measurements are carried out in accordance with IEC 61215 as tested at the connectors or junction box terminals – as applicable – per calibration and testing standards of MAYSUN SOLAR (under the Maysun trademark) valid at the date of manufacture of the PV-modules.
