LG Business Solutions is launching a new generation of solar modules in the United States – the latest LG NeON 2 panels featuring even higher efficiency and greater performance characteristics than current models.
Available for order now and shipping to the U.S. market beginning next month, the new series of LG NeON 2 60-cell modules feature a power class of up to 365 watts with a 21.1 percent module efficiency.* With a better temperature coefficient, they also deliver a higher energy yield optimized for improved year-round performance.
LG Business Solutions is launching a new generation of solar modules in the United States – the latest LG NeON® 2 panels featuring even higher efficiency and greater performance characteristics than current models.
LG Solar USA Senior Director David Chang said this new module design "demonstrates how, through ongoing R&D investment, LG continues to be on the cutting-edge of high-efficiency, low-degradation, industry-leading modules."
LG achieved the efficiency improvement by using larger wafers, which reduce the white space between cells while keeping the traditional industry format of 60 cells for residential applications.
As with all LG solar panels, the new generation of modules feature LG's "Triple 25-year warranty." Backed by 50-billion-dollar LG Electronics, the limited warranty covers product, performance and labor for a quarter century.**
The new NeON 2 modules will be shipping to U.S. customers in August initially from LG's world-class production facility in South Korea, and soon thereafter also from LG's Huntsville, Ala., factory, which opened in 2019. Through investment and workforce development, LG has increased U.S. production capacity from 500 to 550 MW this year.
Beyond the improved module power classes and efficiencies, LG's new panels feature a uniform frame size, now consistent across both NeON 2 and NeON R product classes for greater operational efficiency.
