How does LG manufacture a quality product compared to other manufacturers?
LG’s focus on quality control sits at the heart of our manufacturing philosophy. This quality-first philosophy has established itself over decades of developing ever improving electronic products. A solar production cluster has been organised within the LG Group, using the same quality control processes for solar as for our leading OLED TVs, washing machines and fridges.
LG’s own solar panel quality testing methodology has been developed in-house and is applied rigorously to our panels; every component from PV cells to glass and framing undergoes individual performance testing and separate quality control. If the quality of any component does not meet our industry leading standards, then it will not be used. Our testing regime in our TUV and UL certified research laboratory is rigorous, with LG testing at levels four times the international standard, ensuring long life solar panels.
As a demonstration of LG’s commitment to quality every panel undergoes an EL test for micro cracks and a flash test of panel capacity. All panels must pass to be supplied into Australia.
LG is the only solar company in the world which has over 200 patents in the US and Europe on the design, development, manufacturing and testing of its solar panels.
