The last generation solar panel has become so durable that it can produce energy for 50 years. However, faults can occur in production batches and these faults can result in a reduced energy output after a panel has been in use for only a few years. That is why it is important to invest in panels that come from reputed brands so that you get the promised warranty.
Have you installed solar panels in your home, office or done some project? Which brand solar panel you used? Please share your experience, so that others can can benefited from that.
