LG SOLAR MODULE LIMITED WARRANTY
The limited warranties specified below (hereinafter “Limited Warranty”) apply to LG Solar Module models (hereinafter “Module(s)”) sold by LG Electronics Inc. (hereinafter “LG”) and installed by a licensed contractor under applicable local and state laws, and extend only to the original end use purchaser and subsequent owner(s) of the location on which the Module(s) is originally installed (all such persons hereinafter referred to as “Customer”). The warranty start date ("Warranty Start Date") shall be the date of purchase by the original end use purchaser. If the Customer is unable to provide adequate documentation of the original purchase, the Warranty Start Date shall be 3 months after the module was manufactured.
1. 10 Years Limited Warranty for Module(s)
LG will, at its sole option, repair or replace the Module(s) if it proves to be defective in material or workmanship for a period ending 10 years from the Warranty Start Date under normal application, installation, use and service conditions. This “10 Years Limited Warranty for Module(s)” does not warrant a specific power output, which shall be exclusively covered under Section 2 hereinafter
(“25 years Limited Warranty for Power Output”)
2. 25 Years Limited Warranty for Power Output
LG warrants that for a period of one (1) year from Warranty Start Date the actual power output of the module will be no less than 97% of the labeled power output. From the second year, the warranty for power output will decline annually by 0.7% in each of the remaining 24 years, so that during 25th year, an actual output of at least 80.2% of the nameplate power output specified on the Module will be achieved. The power output values shall be those measured under LG’s standard test conditions as follows: (a) light spectrum of AM 1.5; (b) an irradiation of 1000 W per m2 and; (c) a cell temperature of 25 degrees centigrade at right angle irradiation.
If the Module does not meet the warranted power output levels set out above when measured by LG or by an independent measuring institute agreed to prior to testing by LG under standard test conditions (IEC 61215) taking into account a ±3% measurement tolerance range, LG will, at its sole and absolute discretion, either (i) repair the Module(s); (ii) supplement such deficiency in power by either: (a) providing additional module(s) to the Customer, or (b) replacing the Module(s); or (iii) Refund the difference between guaranteed minimal power output and actual power output (measured under LG’s STC) multiplied by the then current market price of the Module(s) or a comparable model at the time of the Customer’s claim.
3. How this Limited Warranty Applies
The remedies set forth in this Limited Warranty shall be the sole and exclusive remedies and the original warranty period in this Limited Warranty shall not extend beyond the period set forth therein, nor will a new warranty period begin, upon repair, replacement or pro-rated refund due to power loss at LG’s sole option provided under this Limited Warranty.
Repair or replacement will be made with new or re-manufactured module(s) or parts and the replaced Module(s) or parts shall become the property of LG. In the event the Module(s) is no longer available, LG reserves the right, at its sole option, to deliver new or remanufactured module(s) that may differ in size, color, shape, model number, and/or power level.
This Limited Warranty covers the transportation cost for reshipment of any repaired or replaced Module(s) to the Customer site, but does NOT cover the transportation cost and risk including shipping damage or loss for return of the Module(s) to LG or LG’s authorized agent and any other costs associated with installation, removal, or re-installation of the Module(s). If a Module(s) returned to LG is found not to be defective or this Limited Warranty has expired, the Customer is responsible to pay for return shipping cost.

(j) Damage and/or failure caused by external shock such as flying objects or external stress;
(k) Damage and/or failure caused by environmental pollution such as soot, salt damage, or acid rain;
(l) Damage and/or failure caused by natural forces (earthquakes, tornados, floods, lightning, hurricanes, heavy snow, etc.) and fire, power failures, power surges or other unforeseen circumstances that are beyond LG’s control;
(m) Damage and/or failure caused by terrorist acts, riots, war or other man-made disasters;
(n) Damage and/or failure caused by external stains or scratches that do not affect output;
(o) Damage and/or failure caused by sound, vibration, rust, scratching, or discolorations that are the result of normal wear and tear, aging or continuous use; or
