LG claims new rooftop module range ideal for Australia


South Korean electronics and PV module manufacturer LG Electronics has launched a new range of rooftop solar modules which the company said is the most advanced solar panel it has designed and one “ideally suited” for Australia’s harsh weather conditions.

LG Electronics has unveiled 14 new residential and commercial models as part of its NeON range with the first of the new solar PV modules expected to be available in Australia later this month or next.

The new models include different power variants of the NeON H, NeON H Black, NeON H Bi-Facial, NeON R and NeON R Prime modules.

LG Electronics Australia general manager Gus Pavian said the new product range is caters for both residential and commercial applications and delivers improved performance when compared to previous models.

“Our latest range of NeON solar modules is the most reliable and efficient renewable energy solution that LG has designed,” he said.

Included in the new releases is the NeON H module. Based on 120 n-type half-cut bifacial solar cells, the residential model features a power output of 390 W, and an efficiency of 21.2%.

The new module is claimed to have a temperature coefficient of -0.33% per degree Celsius, which the manufacturer said was verified based on internal accelerated test data. The NeON H is also available in a 455 W variant for commercial applications.

The modules come with a 25-year power output guarantee and the NeON H module is said to be able to operate at 90.6% and the NeON R to 92.5% of its original performance after 25 years.

Pavian said the new modules provide outstanding performance in harsh weather conditions, making them ideal for Australia.

“The NeON H is built to perform, built to last,” he said.

“The unique mix of low-light conditions, high temperatures and salt environments in Australia makes the LG NeON H particularly well suited for the local climate.”
