Top 10 Myths About Solar Power – Myth Number 8: Solar Panels Don’t Last Long

solar panels dont last long

Many people still believe that solar panels have a short lifespan and require frequent replacements, leading to high maintenance costs and diminished returns on investment. This misconception stems from outdated information and a lack of awareness about advancements in solar technology over the years and unfortunately is completely false.

The Facts: Solar Panels Are Built to Last!

  1. Advanced Durability: Modern solar panels are engineered to be highly durable. They are designed to withstand harsh weather conditions, including heavy rain, snow, hail, and extreme temperatures. The materials used in their construction are robust and resistant to degradation, ensuring long-term performance.
  2. Longevity: High-quality solar panels typically have a lifespan of 25 to 30 years or more. This longevity is backed by extensive testing and rigorous quality control measures during manufacturing. Even after decades of use, solar panels continue to produce electricity, albeit with a slight reduction in efficiency.
  3. Brookfield Renewable Energies’ Commitment to Quality: At Brookfield Renewable Energies, we pride ourselves on using only the highest quality solar panels for our installations. Our panels undergo stringent testing to ensure they meet the highest standards of performance and durability. This commitment to quality allows us to offer a 25-year performance guarantee with every installation, providing our customers with peace of mind and assurance of long-term value.

At Brookfield Renewable Energies, we offer a comprehensive solar maintenance care plan. This plan covers all aspects of system upkeep, including routine inspections, cleaning, and minor repairs. With this plan, customers can keep their solar systems at peak performance without worrying about costly repairs, call-out fees, or parts and labor costs, as all these are included in the maintenance package.
