LG solar panels, worth the extra expense?

Doing any form of research into solar, it soon becomes obvious that the global mega corporation which is LG has developed an industry-leading range of solar products. With anything leading though, there is usually is an exceedingly higher price tag to match when compared to the cheap stuff. However, the overall value must be considered.

INSIDE!

Initially, let’s put LG’s solar and energy division into perspective. Most will relate with the LG brand to something like a TV. A good upper middle class product, not the cheapest and not often the most expensive in the department store.

When it come to energy generation and storage, LG has had some clear foresight within the last decade to acknowledge the self-generation energy sector as the next wave. What’s even better, the focus was not on cheap volume market dominance. It became all about innovation and sector relevance for LG’s energy division.

Which to avoid?

Residential homeowners don’t require the larger more cumbersome size of 72-cell solar panels from any manufacturer. Especially when there is equal efficiency in a lighter, more adaptable 60-cell solar panel by the same manufacturer available. 

One of the few time solar panel wattage is very misleading. On the upside though is that 72-cell LG solar panels are very hard to come by in the local market and often only specified for larger power generation applications.

Which to consider?

LG is one of the few solar panel manufacturers which produce only ultra-high efficiency solar panel options. This is made even easier with a very slim product offering in the 60-cell solar module variants.

Early 2020, only LG NeON 2 from 350W will be available on a distribution level and therefore, reflected through installer channels. The LG NeON R solar panel range will remain as an industry-leading ultra-high efficiency solar panel option but priced out of reach for most. An average 20% price premium for the 1.5% module efficiency increase.

What is the warranty?

An elite warranty on the solar panel warranty spectrum. All LG solar panels are backed by a comprehensive 25 & 25-year warranty. What does this mean? Many alternative solar panel warranties are layered as a 10 & 25-year warranty or similar. The initial figure being the most critical as a product warranty. The second defining a solar panels warranted performance degradation should the product remain intact.

Product warranty:

LG solar panels and their overall product quality are guaranteed, if installed to manufacturer specifications, for 25-years. A very clear and comprehensive solar panel warranty which includes both product and service (unlike alternatives).
