LG is a brand that is known for making stylish products, and their solar panels are no different. Besides being aesthetically pleasing, however, LG solar panels are also packed with many features that make them among the top companies in the industry.
Here are five reasons why we love LG solar panels:
LG solar panels have been found to produce more electricity output compared with other standard panels, a result that has been backed by Choice magazine testing as well as other independent comparison test sites in Australia. Also, as LG panels are a similar physical size to many standard 270W, you can actually generate 22% more electricity per m2 on the same size roof.
Besides that, LG uses an anti-reflective coating on the panel glass as well as on the cell surface, which allows more light to be absorbed instead of reflected. With more light absorbed, there will be more electricity generated.
The current industry standard is a 10-year manufacturer’s warranty, and cheaper panels usually do not cover transport and replacement labour.
LG, on the other hand, goes above and beyond by offering a 25-year parts and labour warranty. This includes not just the cost of shipping panels for the NeON 2 and NeON R, but also the labour cost for un-installing and re-installing panels, should there be any major failure caused by a manufacturing or materials defect.
Long term productivity
All solar panels lose their electricity generating properties over a period of time. Some low cost panels with weak UV protection on backing sheets, cheaper sealants and fragile framing tend to deteriorate even faster, with many failing in Australia in as little as 2 to 4 years.
Generally though, standard panels lose nearly 20% of their electricity generating capacity over 25 years. The current generation LG panels, however, are able to give at least 6% more output at year 25 than standard panels, with 86% capacity guaranteed.
To ensure they only produce the best quality panels, the quality control of LG’s solar production is monitored and improved using Six Sigma techniques, which include more than 500 monitoring points to maintain and improve the brand’s quality.
Every component – from PV cells to glass and framing – is put through individual performance testing and separate quality control. Any component that does not meet the quality standards will not be used. LG panels are tested between 2 to 3 times the International standards at their in-house testing labs, to ensure robust and long life solar panels.
The LG solar panel range continues to lead the industry with their high quality standards and product breakthroughs. In fact, the LG panel range has won a number of international awards, including the highly respected Intersolar Awards in Germany for Photovoltaic Innovation three times. No other solar panel is known to have had such recognition.
The Solar Division of LG Electronics Australia has also been named as Top Brand PV for four consecutive years by Germany’s EUPD Research.
Total Solar Solutions Australia has been appointed as LG’s Platinum Authorised Energy Partner for 2019, after demonstrating excellent work ethic and high level of customer service as well as installation quality.
