LG unveils its Most Efficient Solar Panel with 12 years warranty
LG announced its innovative and efficient solar power system at Intersolar Europe in Munich, Germany. At the world’s leading exhibition for the solar industry, LG is displaying its latest NeON 2 solar energy solutions. Equipped with newly developed Cello Technology, NeON 2 offers better performance and reliability with significant improvements over the original NeON. The NeON 2 is perfect for homeowners who want to maximize the energy production potential in a limited roof space. The 320W NeON 2 boasts 6.4 kWp capacity with 20 modules (60 cells) while the capacity of a 285W p-type Mono with the same number of modules generates only 5.7 kWp. LG’s highly efficient panel can more easily be installed in a module array on the roof regardless of its surrounding environment.
The NeON 2 produces better power performance with less hassle, raising the bar for the entire solar panel market. Cello ― which stands for Cell Connection, Electrically, Low Loss, Low Stress and Optical Absorption Enhancement ― utilizes circular-shaped wires to scatter light more effectively for better absorption, while reducing the electrical loss by spreading the current with 12 wires.
Thanks to its improved temperature coefficient, the NeON2 can generate more electricity on a sunny day and performs more efficiently on cloudy days due to its low energy reduction in weak sunlight. Whereas conventional p-type silicon modules suffer from Light Induced Degradation (LID), the NeON2 uses n-type wafer modules that are more durable. And the NeON 2’s improved rigidity with reinforced frame design gives LG the confidence to extend the warranty to 12 full years, the industry’s best.
