Workmanship Warranty

SOLAR WARRANTY

Artisan Electric warrantees all of our mechanical and electrical workmanship. If there is any issue with your solar PV system due to our workmanship, we will correct the problem and any damage resulting from it at no cost to the customer for 25 years from the date of installation. If the system does not produce the amount of power we document in your final solar PV proposal on an annual basis, we will either fix the problem or pay you the difference in lost production annually at current utility rates. The production warranty covers a total of 25 years starting from the date of installation.

Artisan’s production guarantee requires the following conditions be met:
(i) Original system design remains intact. Modification to the PV system, and building/structure, invalidates production guarantee without consultation with solar company. “Original system” includes the entire solar PV system, the main service panel, meters, and service entrance.
(ii) System remains in operation at all times. Prolonged downtime invalidates the guarantee for that year. Temporary outages related to non-solar electrical work are allowed. System must be kept clean from debris, pollen, and moss. Customer may elect to clean system or may hire a qualified cleaning company to conduct regular cleanings as required.
(iii) Monitoring system is required. Customer agrees to allow access to all monitoring data for verification of system operation.
(iv) Maintenance of surrounding vegetation is the customer’s responsibility. The initial solar access study documents the condition of vegetation when solar production estimates were generated. Significant deviation or compromise of
solar access will serve as the benchmark document for all future production claims.
(v) Customer agrees to conduct periodic inspection of the system to verify that equipment is always in operation. Customer to verify that disconnects and inverters are always in “on” position. Customer further agrees to inform solar
contractor whenever the inverter displays a fault code or displays a system error.

Proposal and guarantee assume an annual derate of .5% per year in system energy production.

Artisan will service all manufacturer warrantees for solar equipment. In the event of equipment damage or failure, Artisan will charge the customer for any labor not covered under the manufacturer’s equipment warranty.

Happy Twice Time Artisan Customer

Artisan’s staff made making a major purchase on my rental and my primary residence easy and comfortable. Staff was very responsive and patient with my questions and schedule concerns. I sought many bids, some coming in cheaper than Artisans, but at the end of the day I chose Artisan because of their staff, customer service and responsiveness. Because they’re a local union shop I take comfort knowing should something go wrong, I have a safety net. I’ve heard too many horror stories about their online competitors not doing their front end due diligence, bidding low then hitting the homeowner up with change orders that drive the price up. Also, the online companies cannot provide a warranty safe house. Bottom line, if you don’t have the time to look me in the eye when bidding my job or responding within a decent amount of time when I’m dropping tens of thousands of dollars, you’re not worth my business. I’ve recommended Artisan to 4 other friends and family. Three of the four pulled the trigger and cannot be happier.

Artisan Electric is efficient, friendly and fair

We had a wonderful experience with Artisan Electric. The sales team was fully available and gave us all the information we needed without overwhelming us with a 2 hour meetings. Their quote was for a larger system for way less money than competing companies. Our system is working very well! By April we already had $27 power bills and our rebate is back from our federal taxes. We scheduled the work in September or October and the installation happened on time in December after our roof. The installers are union workers who were efficient and respectful. I would highly recommend this company if you are interested in getting Solar panels!

Happy customers + details of our process

Artisan makes the entire process straightforward and stress-free. We worked with Jeff to design the installation of an 8kW system. He was patient and thorough with our questions and hesitancy, as we took some time to decide to proceed. Artisan was clear with the scheduling (it does take some months to get to installation these days) and connected us with the local solar loan options. Jeff handed us off to the installation manager at the pre-installation inspection. Our installation was moved up as space opened in their schedule, as we had hoped, and the entire process took a couple of days. The team of installers worked quickly and it was much quieter than expected. The team was friendly and polite, and they cleaned up the site afterwards. Whenever we hit a payment milestone or external inspection point, someone at Artisan would be in communication and handle it quickly. We had no issues with the permit inspections. A week or so after installation, we were worried one panel wasn't performing normally, and they sent a team over to check it out quickly. We're now about a year past the installation, and everything is working perfectly. The software to monitor the energy generation and usage is interesting and easy to use. Artisan hands over digital copies of documentation for taxes, and photos of the installation from the roof.
