More Power per Square Metre
LG NeON® 2’s 400W are a similar physical size to many conventional 320W 72 cell panels. This means with the LG NeON® 2 400W you get 25% more electricity per square metre than a 320W panel. So you can install more kW of solar on your roof with the LG NeON® 2.
25 Years Product Warranty (Parts & Labour)
The LG product warranty is 15 years longer than the industry standard 10 years and covers 25 years. The warranty is held by LG Electronics Australia and New Zealand. The warranty includes replacement labour and transport.
Improved High Temperature Performance
Solar panels slowly lose ability to generate power as they get hotter. LG NeON® 2, has an improved temperature co-efficient of -0.36%/˚C to our previous model and to the majority of competitor models which means in high temperatures LG NeON® 2 panels will deliver higher output.
Improved 25 Year Performance Warranty
The initial degradation of cells has been improved from -3% to -2%, in the 1st year and the annual rate of degradation has fallen from -0.7%/year to -0.5%/ year thereafter. This brings an 86% warranted output at 25 years, compared to 80.2% for many standard panels.
Proven Field Performance
LG has been involved in a number of comparison tests of the LG panels against many other brand panels. LG NeON® models are consistently among the best performing in these tests.
The N-type doping of the NeON® cells results in extremely low Light Induced Degradation (LID) when compared with the standard P-type cells. This means more electricity generation over the life of the panel.
LG NeON® 2 panels have received additional certification including for; Salt Mist Corrosion to maximum severity 6. Ammonia Resistance certification and PID Resistance Tests.
Extensive Testing Programme
LG solar panels are tested between 2 to 4 times the International Standards at our in-house testing laboratories, ensuring a very robust and longer lasting solar module.
Strict Quality Control Reliable for the Future
The quality control of LG world-class production processes is monitored and improved to Six Sigma quality control standards, which includes 500+ monitoring points to effectively maintain and improve our uncompromising standards.
Double-Sided Cell Structure
In conventional panels the cells produce energy from the front only. The NeON® Cell produces energy from both the front as well as the back of the cell. This innovative technology allows the absorption of light from behind the panel which raises the panel’s efficiency and electricity output.
Multi Anti-reflective Coatings Increase Output
LG is using an anti-reflective coating on the panels glass as well as on the cell surface to ensure more light is absorbed in the panel and not reflected. More absorbed light means more electricity generation.
Positive Tolerance (0/+3%)
If we sell you a 400 Watt panel then the flash test of this panel will show somewhere between 400W and 412.1W. Some competitor panels have -/+ tolerance, so you could get a flash test result below the rated Watt, meaning you pay for Watts you never get.
Installation Time Savings
This NeON® 2 - 72 cell panel can reduce installation time for commercial systems, as there are less panels required eg. to install a 3.2 MW system one would need 8,000 LG400W and 10,000 of a 320W – 72 cell panel. There will also be significant savings in design, transport, labor, rails and cabling and 20% less space required.
Anti PID Technology for Yield Security
PID (Potential Induced Degradation) affects the long term ability of panels to produce high level electricity output. LG panels have anti PID technology and have been successfully tested by leading third party laboratories regarding PID resistance.
“CELLO” Technology Increases Power
“CELLO” Multi wire busbar cell technology lowers electrical resistance and increases panel efficiency, giving more power per panel and provides a more uniform look to the panel.
Fully Automated Production in South Korea
All LG solar panels are manufactured in a custom designed and fully automated production line by LG in Gumi, South Korea ensuring extremely low tolerances. This means great consistency between panels.
