LG has been manufacturing electrical goods since 1958 and have one of the most stringent quality control procedures in their solar manufacturing facilities.
LG Solar Panels have their manufacturing facility in Gumi, South Korea.
Since 2011 LG Solar Panels has distributed over 70MW of panels being approximately 270,000 panels to Australian customers with a less than 10 panel warranty return rate.
LG Solar Panels have offices in every mainland city except Tasmania which is impressive compared to other tier 1 manufacturer having limited presence in Australia.
LG is well-known to produce high-quality Tier 1 solar panels having 25 years’ full replacement product warranty which also includes labour cost for the replacement of the LG Solar Panels.
LG offers 2 key panel ranges – The LG NeON 2 which goes up to 360W and the LG NeON R which offers up to 375W per panel.
There is also LG ‘s commercial panel range. These panels are slightly longer and have 72 cells instead of 60 solar cells which is the standard for residential panels.
All the panel ranges offer a 25 years’ product replacement and performance warranty, backed by LG Electronics, the largest consumer brand offering in Australia, LG Electronics is a global company with over 70,000 employees in 140 countries and USD $54 billion* in annual revenue.
There are 2 type of models LG NeON 2 provide which are LG NeON 2 Black & LG NeON 2.
LG’s NeON 2 Panels goes up to 360W panel capacity.
The LG NeON 2 panels with their double sided cells and CELLO technology absorb light from the front and the back of the cell. This technology sets a new standard for innovation and was recognised with the 2015 Photovoltaic Innovation Award at the Intersolar Industry Event in Germany.
The LG NeON 2 has seen many improvements, from longer warranties and higher efficiency to stronger frames and better wind loading.
LG NeON 2 Black panels with their black cells, black frames and black backsheet give an aesthetically pleasing uniform appearance.
As its name suggests, the monocrystalline LG NeON 2 Black solar module is completely black and will look great on your roof. Featuring the black CELLO look, it can withstand under test a static front panel load of 5400 Pascals and a rear load of 4000 Pascals which provides more strength and durability than a standard panel.
LG NeON 2 solar panels now offer even more output. Featuring a classy design and with a total of 60 cells, it can withstand under test a static front panel load of 5400 pascals and rear wind load of 4000 pascals. LG has lengthened its product warranty from 10 to 25 years and has improved its linear performance guarantee to 90.08% of nominal output after 25 years. The LG NeON 2 is an excellent choice for high performing long lasting solar systems.
LG NeON R Solar Panel is especially suitable for the houses with limited roof space Featuring an innovative design which allows up to 25% more electricity per m2 than a standard 300W panels.
Many competing 60 cell panels in Australia and New Zealand produce 300W power. The LG NeON R solar panels at a similar physical size reaches an incredible 375W (21.7% efficiency), making it ideal for solar systems seeking visually pleasing panels and for roofs where space is tight.
The LG NeON R Solar Panels are comparatively more efficient then LG NeON 2 Panels.
The LG NeON R solar panel is a very powerful module. The 30 multi ribbon busbars at the rear of the module is the result of LG’s extensive Solar R&D investment.
LG solar panel manufacturer has more than 60 years of experience in product development and innovation, with over 30 years if experience in research and development. This makes LG to be one of the leading innovators and manufacturer of solar panels globally and in Australia and New Zealand.
LG has won several awards for innovation. Technologies like “CELLO” multi wire busbar, Double glass etc. aims at increasing efficiency of the solar panels and thereby ensuring higher savings. LG panels come with a 25 years of panel replacement warranty which ensures better returns and peace of mind for a long period. LG solar panels are designed very sturdy and are one of the strongest in the market. These are designed keeping in mind the climatic conditions in Australia and can withstand significantly tougher cyclones and hailstorms.
LG’s presence in Australia has been for over 20 years and has an excellent customer service. All these factors make LG solar panels and inevitable choice keeping in mind the budget factor.
LG and others such as the Australian consumer organization have been involved in several comparison tests of the LG modules against many other panels. LG NeON 2 and NeON R panels are consistently one of the highest performing panels in these tests. This means you get excellent electricity generation in low light and all other weather conditions.
One of the reasons why the NeON 2 panels perform so well is that they have a double-sided cell structure. This innovative approach allows the absorption of light from the front and the back of the cell, which raises the panel’s performance, as there is additional electricity generation from light hitting the edge and back of the solar cell.
Solar panels degrade over their lifetime and produce less electricity each year. The NeON 2 and NeON R have a very low annual degradation. Over the life of the LG panels your system will typically experience 10% less degradation than cheaper panels. This adds upto many dollars of additional electricity production over the years with LG NeON panels.
LG solar panels have been rated 4.7 Stars out of 5 by independent review platform in Australia
LG solar have over the past decade sold many millions of high-quality panels around the world with only a very low proportion of warranty claims. As this system has a solid 25-year panel product warranty, meaning if there are issues it will get new panels.
Where several other panels have failed in as little as 3 years, LG solar panels are built to last due to various reasons like regular IEC standard testing, Cyclone and Hailstorm testing, High quality components etc. The result is a high quality and consistent solar product, with input materials specifically designed to last a long time.
A 6.6kW system with 20 X 330w LG NeON 2 panels and a 5kW Growatt inverter will cost around $7000 for a standard installation in Brisbane; whereas with a Fronius inverter it will cost around $8000.
A 6.6kW system with 17 X 375w LG NeON R panels and a 5kW Growatt inverter will cost around $8500 for a standard installation in Brisbane; whereas with a Fronius inverter it will cost around $9600. Effectively, it will be a 6.375kW system.
Cost for regional installations and installations other than standard property will vary depending on the specifications of the respective properties.
In the early 2000’s typical solar panels were 175w. A new generation of panels was developed in 2010-11 and the panels became bigger and heavier and moved to 250w. In the last 10 years, changes in raw materials and cell technology have pushed the output to 330w per standard panel and 350-360W for higher efficiency panels
LG NeON 2 panels range is available in 330w and 350-360W capacity and LG NeON R panels are available in 375w size. Great performance under low light conditions with LG technology and our own cell manufacturing with low tolerances, ensuring highly consistent performing panels. LG NeON R Solar Panel is especially suitable for the houses with limited roof space featuring an innovative design which allows up to 25% more electricity per sqm than a standard 300w panel.
Currently, a 6.6kW solar panel system is widely in demand for a residential property across Australia. A 6.6kW solar panel will comprise of 20 panels if you opt for 330w panels. Higher the capacity of panels, lesser will be the number of panels.
