LG Solar: Why it’s one of the best solar panel brands on the market

LG Electronics was established in 1958 and quickly became a household name, famous for producing extremely high quality products at the top of the technology game. Not distracted by initial success, LG worked hard to invest in constant research and development to make sure they stayed front and centre as leader of innovative technology. 30 years ago they turned set their sights on solar energy, and the LG Solar branch was born.

7 Reasons LG Panels Will Save You

As a global electronics manufacturing pioneer, LG has more than 60 years of experience in product development and innovation. Now, with over 30 years of research and development in the solar industry behind us, we’re proud to be one of the leading innovators and manufacturers of solar panels globally and in Australia and New Zealand

The majority of customers purchase solar to reduce their electricity bills. Companies selling cheap solar often argue it is worthwhile to buy cheaper solar, 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 solar 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.

Not all solar panels are the same. LG has ensured that our NeON® range delivers some of the best performance on the market.

25 year product warranty, by the biggest consumer

LG offers one of the most meaningful panel warranties in solar. On offer is a 25 year parts and labour warranty which includes the cost of shipping panels for the NeON® 2 and NeON® R, as
well as the labour cost of un-installing and re-installing the panel. This compares very favourably to the 10, 12, 15 or even 25 year manufacturer’s warranty offered by manufacturers who do
not have the LG exposure in the local market. There is no point feeling secure by a long warranty – if the company backing it will not be around.

Not all solar panels are built the same, and many struggle to achieve the LG build quality. In Australia & NZ some competitors’ panels have failed in as little as 3 years. Reasons for failures and low output performance include hot spots, corrosion, water ingress, failed bypass diodes, poor sealants, delamination and micro cracks

LG Electronics runs a Homogenous Substance Management system to ensure that no ozone depleting substances are used in the manufacturing of the LG solar panels, or any of the materials supplied to LG for manufacturing of the solar panels

LG NeON® 2 and NeON® R panels have been designed with appearance in mind. Their black cells and black frames give an aesthetically pleasing uniform appearance. For very aesthetic conscious customers LG is also offering a stunning looking complete black version of their NeON® 2 range and a royal blue/black NeON® R Prime as well as the see through clear backing sheet – LG bifacial range. By using these aesthetically pleasing solar panel products, your roof will look great, which may help preserve or increase the resale value for your home.

Since then they have done nothing but exceed customer and installer expectations, creating solar panels that are ahead of the pack. In 2020 LG Solar panels were awarded WINNER of the Most Trusted Brand category by Readers Digest and has been backed by Choice magazine testing and other independent panel comparison test sites in Australia.

Their success is no surprise, their solar panel offerings are impressive when compared to other brands, and the avalanche of positive reviews backs this up. They offer a 25 year warranty on their panels – a whopping 15 years longer than most other brands. Their panels go through extensive and rigorous testing to ensure they are highly durable and extremely effective – even after 25 years they still guarantee a performance rate of 90.8%! LG Solar only use monocrystalline N-type cells on their panels, and while they are more costly to manufacture and buy, they earn their money back in performance and lifespan.
