LG NeON Wins Key Award At Intersolar
LG Electronics innovative solar product development was recognised at the 2013 Intersolar in Munich, Germany with the Photovoltaic’s Award for its recently released 60 cell, 290W, 300W and 310W NeON solar panel range.
The particularly high-performing solar module, the Mono X NeoN, boasts both improved efficiency and relative low costs for the end consumer. The special innovation of the NeON is to use N-type (bifacial) solar cells, which use the solar insolation from two sides. The modules, measuring only 1m x 1,6 m, the same size as the conventional 60 cell 250W Mono crystalline products , but offer an efficiency of 18,3% for the 300W module and 18,6 for the 310W module.
Furthermore, at 17.3 kg the solar modules are especially light-weight, but with strong wind loading. They are highly resistant against environmental effects, too. Markus Lambert, LG’s National Manager Solar said:” The jury of Intersolar 2013 was especially impressed with the solar module’s combination of new technologies used, the sustainable use of resources and the economic viability”.
The LG NeON range is now available from Solar Juice Australia on 02/9725 2222 and will be displayed at LG’s stand during the upcoming Clean Energy Week.
