LG NeON stop the energy rip-off – cheap solar panels are a bad investment


The new LG NeON solar panel range comes with the LG Australia 25-year product and performance warranty, including labour and parts. At 25 years, the NeON H panels will still have at least 90.6% efficiency.

LG Is not one to shout about its competitors – it quietly does its job. But some recent stats about a drastic reduction in Australian approved solar panels are enough to make any non-LG panel installation panic.

In the past few years, solar panel manufacturers exporting to Australia have dropped from 454 to 67. But scarier is that these manufacturers had 26,672 models/variants dropping to 2650 models (Clean Energy Council CEC approved list). What that means is over 24,000 models sold only a few years ago are now not supported and have no warranty. Australia has been a dumping ground for cheap, low efficiency (200W), limited-life panels supplied by fly-by-night installers not capable of honouring a 25-year warranty.

LG NeON range is now available in Australia.

LG NeON H, LG NeON H Black, LG NeON H Bi-Facial, LG NeON R and NeON R Prime

These modules have outstanding low-light performance, high-heat temperature tolerance, and salt corrosion resistance, making them ideal for installations right up to the Australian coastline.  The highly durable energy solution can withstand harsh weather conditions and is also resistant to light-induced degradation (LID), the loss of performance from exposure to sunlight in the initial hours after installation.

NeON solar modules are the most reliable and efficient renewable energy solution built to last in Australian conditions. LG rigorous hail resistance tests ensure the reliability of the modules under severe weather conditions.
