What can you do if have solar issues? Solar repair?

American Solar Direct filed for bankruptcy in May 2017. By registering for bankruptcy, any workmanship warranties provided by American Solar Direct may be void. What are your options if you need service? Suppose American Solar Direct is no longer in business but used high-quality components. In that case, the manufacturer’s warranty will likely cover the new parts’ cost if you’re still under warranty. However, in most cases, labor is not included. You will have to get another solar company to replace the malfunctioning components. Unfortunately, you will be responsible for the labor cost to repair your broken solar energy system.
