Solar Panels
Storage

LG is a trusted, financially stable electronics company which has included solar energy as part of its product diversification strategy. In addition to panels, it also makes batteries, with its energy storage brand LG Chem set to supply batteries to 13 of the top 20 car manufacturers for their future electric vehicles as well as the replacement battery for the Tesla Roadster.

An internationally trusted brand with a diverse solar offer

According to Bloomberg New Energy Finance, who ranked LG as a Tier 1 PV manufacturer, the company has pushed research more than many other panel makers and has one of the highest numbers of patents in the industry.

LG’s recent announcement of a $600 million plant development shows they are in the solar market for the long term. The PV module factory features a fully-automated production line with 500 quality control processes. For example, the panels undergo two EL tests during their production – one before and one after the lamination – to verify that the cells used have no micro cracks. Moreover, every module is fitted with a fire retardant and passes a detailed, extensive fire test. In addition, LG uses high-quality components such as original MC4 plugs, which extends the modules’ lifespan. Finally, LG ensures the detailed traceability of its panels by storing an image of each of them with their serial number in its database for 25 years.

With its comprehensive performance and safety testing, it’s no wonder LG won the Top Brand Award 2016 for Consumer Trust in solar panels in Australia, Germany, Great Britain and Europe.

 

An award-winning module by a world-class brand with cutting-edge cell technology and enviable looks, the LG NeON 2 is the panel of the future. It provides an ideal solution to homes with limited roof space or looking to expand their solar system by adding battery storage for instance. A Multi-award winner, the LG NeON range won Intersolar awards in Germany three times in the last four years: in 2013 for its double-sided cell feature, in 2015 for the 12 wire busbars, and in 2016 for its improved generation capability. The CELLO technology used in the LG NeON 2 modules increases their efficiency and reliability. It consists of better temperature coefficient in hot weather, 12 wire busbars (whilst conventional PV modules only have 3 or 4), and lower long-term degradation.

 

While most 60-cell solar panels on the market generate 260W of electricity, the LG NeON R produces a massive 360W of power, so even households with little roof space can enjoy maximum output. It is also ideal for people planning to expand their solar power system, or add battery storage or electric car charging units to it. Besides its elegant all-black look, the LG NeON R is a highly efficient module. It possesses an innovative design featuring 30 multi-ribbon rear busbars while conventional PV modules only have 3 or 4 located at the front. This enables a largest surface of the front cells to be exposed to the sun, resulting in 38.5% more energy being produced per square metre than a standard 260W panel.

 

LG Chem RESU high voltage

LG Chem RESU10H

LG Chem has recently released a range of high voltage (400V) batteries comprising the RESU7H and RESU10H models. Convenient, performant and safe, the RESU high voltage batteries are compatible with the best inverter brands on the market. Charging your battery during off-peak times and discharge it during peak times saves you money on your power bill. The RESU collects the excess power produced by your PV system during the day and allows you to use it at night, when your solar panels are no longer generating electricity. This surplus energy also comes in handy in the event of a blackout, providing you with back-up power.
