Why should I buy LG Solar Panels?
Buying a solar panel system from LG means you are purchasing a high performing product built to last for decades
LG sees the last 30 years as just the beginning. We look forward to being a major contributor to the solar industry - and global sustainability efforts – for many years to come.
Over the past decade, LG has sold many millions of high-quality panels around the world with only a very low proportion of warranty claims. That’s the type of partner you want for a 25 year plus relationship.
LG Electronics also has the know-how in energy storage, heat pumps, air conditioning, and many other electronic appliances.
This makes LG Electronics not only the right partner for you when it comes to solar panels, but also for other home energy solutions.
For the past decade, LG solar panels have been installed in some of the harshest environments in Australia.

LG is the one panel that has skin in the game. We have close to 1 billion dollar business in Australia, we have close to 300 staff in five offices.
We have four warehouses, we are a proper business. We do not sit there with 10-15 people bringing stuff in in a virtual office where I don't even own the phone so we are so big that our warranty which is a 25-year product replacement warranty has a real meaning and if you look at the history of the solar industry that is a very very important factor.
Then we have a dealer network which will support you in the long run so when you look at the overall package great panel great warranty crate dealer network I don't know anybody else who can offer you in the same way that LG does.

The Origin of Your Solar Panels
Where are my panels from? Which country do I support by buying which type of panel? China has reached a strong dominance in renewables with many German manufacturers leaving the field.
Only a few manufacturers are making panels without considerable Chinese Influence. The following panel manufacturers either have got their headquarters in China, are owned by China or make some of their panels in China.

The LG solar factory in Gumi, Korea enjoys a very high level of quality control.
Better Financial Return Over Time
The majority of customers purchase a solar system to reduce their electricity bills. Companies selling cheap solar often argue it is worthwhile to buy cheaper, as the return on investment is better.
This claim is incorrect, as quality solar has a much better long term financial return.
Also from an environmental perspective, cheap, shorter-lasting systems will not generate as much electricity as high-quality durable panels and inverters.
This results in quality systems providing a better environmental CO2 abatement outcome. For the same input of raw materials, a much better abatement outcome will be achieved by using high-quality panels and inverters.
Cheaper panel salespersons sometimes argue that it is not worthwhile to buy longer-lasting panels.
The rationale being, technology does change quickly and it is better to buy cheaper equipment, as it will allow them to buy newer products with better technology in a few years again.
WRONG 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.
Why choose LG Solar Panels?
Not all solar panels are built the same. When you purchase solar panels from LG Solar you are investing in a product backed by years of experience and manufactured with the help of stringent research and testing standards.
Arguably, the quality of your solar panels and the inverter are the most crucial factors in any system.
Over their 25 year output warranty period solar panels in Australia and New Zealand will be subjected to more than 100,000 hours of relentless sunshine, extremes of heat and cold, wind, rain, hail and extraordinarily harsh climate changes.A good, high quality and lasting brand like LG, with our extensive testing and quality control, ensures that you get the most out of your system over its long operating life. Unlike most suppliers, who only offer a 25 year performance warranty, LG offers a meaningful replacement warranty for the entire 25 years.
LG selects high quality solar companies to be LG Authorised Installers. A quality solar panel needs a quality installation to optimise it's performance and long-life which maximises financial savings for households. The solar industry includes quality solar installers but sadly also sharks, cowboys and ethically challenged operators. A large number of solar companies have closed over the last 10 years, many have intentionally 'phoenixed' (closed and re-opened under a different name) to avoid honouring installation warranties when low quality equipment and installations fail.read more
Buying a solar module from LG means you are purchasing a product built to last for decades. LG Electronics Australia has the capacity to provide a reliable backup and makes their locally awarded warranties count for a long time. They offer the biggest consumer brand in solar.
There are industry estimates that over half of current solar manufacturers will not be in the solar space in five years’ time. Since 2013 over 350 panel manufacturers have left the industry. A quick search on the internet shows the state of an industry facing overcapacity and some solar panel manufacturers have high debts and financial problems. LG on the other hand has a diversified income stream and a long term commitment to the solar industry.read more
