HOW DO WE GET APPROVED FOR THE PROGRAM?
Please complete the application found here. Please allow 3-4 weeks for the application review. We require the Solar Insure product on all qualifying deals to become a certified dealer.
HOW DO I SUBMIT THE CLIENT’S INFORMATION AND REGISTER A WARRANTY?
All warranties should be submitted through our platform located here. Please contact your account manager for additional information about access to our platform.
WHO PAYS FOR THE COMPONENT MONITORING AND WARRANTY? THE INSTALLER OR CUSTOMER?
Typically the installer passes on the cost to the consumer as a pass-through expense within the total installation cost.
DOES SOLAR INSURE WORK WITH THE SAME INSTALLER THAT THE CUSTOMER INITIALLY WORKED IN RESPONDING TO A CLAIM?
Solar Insure will generally work with the initial installer. However, if the installer is no longer in business or able to perform the repair work then SolarInsure will choose a reputable installer in the local area to complete the RMA process.
HOW IS THE SOLAR INSURE COMPONENT MONITORING AND WARRANTY PLAN SOLD?
At the moment we only sell our protection plans from verified high-quality install partners. Please reach out to your local installer for additional information. If the installer is not an approved reseller, please contact us to engage in the approval process. If you need help finding a high-quality contractor please review our vetting process.
DOES SOLAR INSURE COVER THE INITIAL DIAGNOSIS VISIT?
We also cover the initial truck roll and diagnosis if there is a manufacturer defect and an RMA is issued.
If there is no defective part or a roof penetration issue, then the call and the labor are not covered. Most contractors use the inverter diagnosis tool to verify panel/inverter issues. If not, we cover the initial truck roll and the labor if there is truly a defective part.
