LG Solar Panels
LG has a long history in solar photovoltaics beginning over 30 years ago when they first began research into silicon crystalline cells. The next 20 years of research and development laid a solid foundation before LG started large scale PV module manufacturing in 2009 at their facility in Gumi, South Korea. LG solar is a subsidiary of massive LG Corporation, the South Korean multinational company with over 220,000 employees globally and total revenue in the tens of billions.
After close to 10 years of PV module manufacturing LG are now onto their fourth generation panels and produced over 2GW of panels in 2017. As a Tier 1 manufacturer holding numerous awards, ultra-efficient cell technology and industry leading warranty there are very few solar companies who can compete at this level of quality, service and reliability.
In Australia and north America, LG modules although more expensive than the competition, are very popular and it’s not hard to see why. LG panels are highly rated by customers and solar installers alike as they not only look impressive with the black anodised aluminium frames but the construction quality, detail and finish are of the highest standard.
The latest generation Neon 2 modules have firmly established LG as the leaders in multi-wire cell technology with 12 round wire busbars and the unique finger design being incorporated into all Neon 2 and Neon 2 bifacial modules. The N-type ‘Cello’ cells look impressive and improve performance and conversion efficiency. .
LG solar module efficiency

Neon 2 efficiency - up to 19.6%
Neon R efficiency - up to 21.4%
LG NeON® 2 - Residential 60 cell
The LG NeON® 2 has seen many improvements, from longer warranties and higher efficiency to stronger frames and better wind loading.
LG NeON® 2 Black
LG NeON® 2 Black panels with their black cells, black frames and black backsheet give an aesthetically pleasing uniform appearance.
LG NeON® R (60 cell)
The LG NeON® R is a very powerful module. The 30 multi ribbon busbars at the rear of the module sets a new standard of innovation and is the result of LGs extensive solar R&D investment.
