LG Electronics has released its new LG NeON H+ range of solar panels for the Australian rooftop market, with three modules featuring half-cut cell technology, new wiring technology and gap-free features.

The South Korean solar module maker recently revealed its 2022 range of solar panels, which includes the flagship 415W LG NeON H+ model; the 410W LG NeON H+ White model; and the LG NeON H+ Black 410W model.

The new range’s innovative technologies with N-type cells boost output; increase resistance to thermal stress and external impact; perform well in low light and high heat; have a high resistance to hail; and boast a sleek, streamline appearance that is durable and ideally suited to Australian conditions.

LG Electronics estimates that across a 25-year span, a typical 10kWp NeON H+ 410W installation can produce an additional 32,632 kWh, compared to an installation using the same 10kWp conventional 370W panels. 

“The introduction of the NeON H+ range provides the type of high-efficiency and high-quality solution which is increasingly sought after by Australian homeowners,” says Gus Paviani, general manager, solar and energy, LG Electronics Australia.

“Backed by LG’s 25-year product and performance warranty, this module gives confidence about outstanding performance and durability, while reducing a home’s energy footprint.

“As more consumers adopt electric cars and add battery storage to their homes, the average solar system is likely to reach 15kWp in the coming years, assuming it follows the national trend during the past 10 years.

“High efficiency and low degradation panels such as the NeON range are designed to maximize roof space and cater for consumers’ future energy needs.

“All these new solar modules are made by LG Electronics in our state-of-the-art solar factories in South Korea.”

A predominant feature of the NeON H+ range for 2022 is the N-type half-cut cells being tolerant of extreme heat. Also, the gap-free design reduces the distance energy must travel by eliminating empty space between cells. The range is designed with cells that overlap by half a millimetre, allowing more cells to fit in the same amount of space.

This gap-free innovation also helps protect the wiring connecting the cells from external impact.

LG’s NeON H+ modules come with a 25-year warranty for a performance level of 90.6 per cent of initial performance at 25 years’ continuous use.

As part of the 2022 suite of LG solar options, the company has updated its LG NeON H BiFacial and commercial panel range.

The LG NeON H BiFacial now includes three new models – 440W, 445W and 450W – which can absorb sunlight from the front and rear sides of their cells by using a transparent backsheet.

This LG bifacial technology is designed to provide up to 30 per cent higher energy production when installed under optimal conditions.

New models for the commercial range include 460W, 465W and 470W models, which feature high-module efficiency of up to 21.4 per cent.
