Will conform to the specifications and the drawings applicable thereto.
Any deterioration in appearance of the SPV MODULE(s), including any scratches, stains, mechanical wear, rust, mold, optical deterioration (excluding any deterioration in color), that occur after delivery to Purchaser shall not qualify as a defect hereunder, if and to the extent such deterioration does not result in a material impairment of the functioning of the SPV MODULE(s).
