Introduction to LG Solar Energy

LG Solar has earned a strong reputation in the solar industry thanks to their efficient, dependable modules. Famous for their drive to innovate, LG delivers terrific strides in solar cell technology with each new model they bring to market. Installers and homeowners all over the world trust LG panels to power their solar installations.

LG offers a range of different models to ensure every homeowner can find the module that fits their needs and allows them to maximize their return on investment. Every module in their lineup is covered by LG’s 25-year parts, performance and labor warranty. This first-class warranty adds incredible value to installing LG panels. In addition, the stability of LG Electronics, one of the largest technology companies in the world, strengthen their products’ bankability. 


LG NeON® R 360 Watt & 365 Watt

Boasting 21.1% efficiency, the LG NeON® R is LG’s premier solar module. High-performance modules like the LG NeON® R allow homeowners to produce more energy with fewer panels, reducing installation costs and accelerating payback periods. 

The LG NeON® R is made with unique solar cell technology. While most solar cells have metal interconnectors patterned across the face of the cell, LG has instead positioned these strips of metal in the back of the LG NeON® R cell. This reduces the amount of sunlight that’s blocked from reaching the silicon solar cell, increasing light absorption.  

  • Rear-positioned interconnector cell technology
  • 21.1% efficiency
  • 88.4% performance guarantee after 25 years
  • Comprehensive 25-year parts, performance and labor warranty


Cello Technology

LG set out to redefine the solar cell when they developed Cello Technology, which is used in each of their popular LG NeON® 2 models. They realized that covering a cell in numerous flat interconnectors caused a valuable percentage of light to be reflected off the solar cell instead of being harnessed for production. 

Cello Technology utilizes round wire interconnectors which reflect less light than the flat ribbon-shaped interconnectors of previous modules. This unique cell structure enhances light absorption, but also improves electrical current transmission and mitigates loss from cell degradation.


LG NeON® 2 335 Watt

LG NeON® 2, a well-rounded module that installers have come to rely on, is LG’s best-selling solar module. The terrific efficiency of Cello Technology earned this model an InterSolar Award in 2015, and LG has continued to enhance the LG NeON® 2 in the years since. Improved front-load and rear-load capabilities have made it even stronger, which ensures the module can stand up to wind, snow, and debris. 

  • Cello Technology
  • 19.6% efficiency
  • 86% performance guarantee after 25 years
  • Comprehensive 25-year parts, performance and labor warranty


LG NeON® 2 Black 320 Watt

An all-black module provides a sleek look that blends in nicely with dark roofs. LG came out with the LG NeON® 2 Black to offer this aesthetic advantage. Unlike the regular LG NeON® 2 which features silver metal wires, this module’s wires are a dark gray, which appear black at distance. 

LG NeON® 2 Black offers terrific efficiency thanks to Cello Technology. It also offers the same great dependability as the regular NeON® 2. For homeowners that want the look of a clean and cutting-edge solar array, the NeON® 2 Black is a great choice.

  • All black cells and back sheet, matte black frame
  • Cello Technology
  • 18.7% efficiency
  • 86% performance guarantee after 25 years
  • Comprehensive 25-year parts, performance and labor warranty


LG Parts, Performance and Labor Warranty

Every LG module comes with the company’s respected parts, performance and labor warranty. If a module fails or doesn’t meet LG’s high-performance guarantee, not only will the cost of your replacement module be covered, but LG will also cover up to $450 in labor costs. 

The most impressive element of the warranty is the performance guarantee. If any of LG’s modules fail to maintain the efficiency promised during the 25-year warranty period, LG will replace them. It’s critical that your panels generate the amount of power that was projected at the time of installation so that you receive a favorable return on investment. Each day that a module is under-performing equates to money lost that you can’t get back.


Advanced Temperature Coefficient

It’s a little-known fact that heat reduces the efficiency of electrical conduction. Even if a solar panel is receiving ample amounts of sunlight, it won’t be nearly as efficient as it could be if the panel is overheating. LG strives to enhance the temperature coefficient of every panel they produce. The LG NeON® R, LG NeON® 2, and LG NeON® 2 Black have all improved in their temperature coefficient metrics in comparison to their predecessors. 


A Brand You Can Trust

LG Electronics’ roots in manufacturing date all the way back to 1958, when the business was called Goldstar. Today, LG is a technology giant and their economic stability offers a unique advantage that young solar module manufacturers can’t compete with—it’s very likely that LG Electronics will be in business to honor your warranties over the next 25 years. Choosing a company that will be in business to support their warranties is always a crucial part of deciding which company to work with when going solar.

LG has another thing going for them as a solar module maker, their vertical manufacturing model. LG has a hand in the entire manufacturing process of every module, from initial R & D until the day your panels ship. Their manufacturing expertise is well-documented, and knowing they’re keeping an eye on your module every step of the way can offer you valuable peace-of-mind.
