New Solar Panels Offer Sleek Residential Design
LG Electronics USA is introducing the first-of-its-kind LG NeON R 60-cell solar panel for residential installation with back contact at Intersolar 2017. The newly released technology, with all electrodes on the rear side, creates a panel with polished aesthetics, improved temperature coefficient and heightened visual appeal making it an all-around win for energy-conscious homeowners.
"Providing our residential clients with the highest quality product, while bringing added value to their home, is of utmost importance to LG Solar. The NeON R back-contact technology blends form and function, allowing for 100 percent of the cell area to be used for solar power generation," said Stephen Hahm, vice president and head of LG Electronics USA's Energy Solutions business.
Higher Efficiency in Any Environment, Without Sacrificing Aesthetics
LG NeON R has one of the best temperature performance characteristics on the market, with key design features that significantly enhance output for maximum efficiency. The temperature performance characteristics are important because other panels may struggle not only in low-light situations, but also on hot-sunny days if the temperature of the module rises.
NeON R panels are rated at 365 Watts per panel, compared with most conventional panels that have a 290W rating, equating to 26 percent more power from the NeON R panel. And, unlike conventional p-type solar modules, the N-Type cells used in the NeON R use almost no boron, so Light Induced Degradation is reduced significantly, maximizing performance and maintaining maximum potential power output for the life of the module.
Recognizing the home is the consumer's largest asset, the NeON R is designed with high-end design appeal in mind in addition to high performance. Eliminating the busbars on the front of the module not only creates a seamless visual, it maximizes light absorption.
Long-Lasting Design, Extended Warranty
A newly reinforced frame design ensures the module can endure industry leading front and rear loads, making this model stronger than ever. While this model is strong and powerful, LG goes above and beyond the industry standard 10-year warranty to offer a 25-year product warranty. This product and performance warranties combined ensure the homeowner achieves peace of mind with the knowledge LG stands behind the materials and workmanship of the modules for a full 25-years. The power performance warranty makes the investment virtually risk-free.
