Insured warranty: Inherent defect coverage!
Solar energy is sustainable, silent, safe, clean and financially attractive, but it is hard to judge the quality of used material with an unexperienced eye. There is a lot of difference in quality. How are you assured of a good performance of your installation in case of a damage due to inherent defect of your solar panels or inverters?
Surety bonds are insurance products that secure the financial risk of one party against the default of another party to the same contract. Most commonly this is associated with contractor default.
A bond or surety is a promise by guarantor (the surety company) to pay one party (the obligee) a certain amount if a second party (the principal) fails to meet some obligation, such as fulfilling the terms of a contract.
The surety bond protects the obligee against losses resulting from the principal’s failure to meet the obligation. With other words: the bond provides a guarantee that the bonded company or person will perform its obligations in good faith. Failure to do so may trigger a requirement that the surety company, who provided the bond, steps up in its place. In that case the surety company is obligated to find another contractor to complete the contract or compensate the obligee for the financial loss incurred.
There are four types of surety bonds; bid bond, payment bond, performance bond and ancillary bond.
