Refund & Exchange Policy: 
Cancellation Policy: To cancel your order, simply call during normal business hours and speak with your Sales Representative or our Customer Service Department. If your order has not yet been processed, or your credit card has not been charged or no payment has been received, there is no cancellation fee.

If your order has not shipped and your order has already been processed or your credit card has been charged or payment has been received, there is an 8% cancellation fee calculated on the total invoice amount. The cancellation fee will be deducted from your refund. Some manufacturers charge a cancellation fee, even if the order has not shipped. Schneider Renewables and Surrette Batteries charge 25% in this circumstance. If any portion of your order has properly shipped, a minimum of 20% restocking fee per item will be deducted from your refund. We do not refund shipping charges.

Many of our products are custom built and are not cancellable once they are put into production. Custom-built items are not returnable once they ship. These items include, but are not limited to, Pre-wired Power Panels, Battery Boxes, Solar Mounting Racks and Trackers, HuP Batteries and some Industrial Batteries. If you need to cancel an order for a custom product, if allowed by the manufacturer, the cancellation fee will vary depending on the manufacturer. It can be as much as 35% to 65% of the cost of the item.

Discretionary Returns:  All returns require a Return Merchandise Authorization (RMA). A valid RMA number must be obtained from our Customer Service Representative and the number must be included on the return documentation. RMAs incur a 20% restocking fee. An RMA must be requested within 21 days of the original invoice date for non-defective, properly shipped product. Thereafter, all sales are final. We reserve the right of refusal upon inspection.

All items must be returned in "as new" condition.  Package the product inside a separate box. Include the original unmarked packaging and all accessories, blank warranty cards and owner’s manuals. Returns will be assessed a 20%restocking fee per item unless a replacement order of equal or greater value is placed at the time of the RMA issuance.

Shipping charges are non-refundable. When returning product, use a shipper with tracking capabilities. You assume all responsibility for insuring the return shipment and also for filing the claim for lost or damaged returns.

You will be contacted soon after your package has been received at our warehouse with refund or product replacement information.
