LG Solar Panels Review – Are They The Right Choice?
If you’re considering LG solar panels for your home, there are a number of things you need to keep in mind first.
Korea’s LG Electronics started in 1958 and are now considered to be one of the top consumer electronics manufacturers and solar panel brands in the world.
In June 2015, LG Solar was awarded the prestigious Intersolar award in the photovoltaics module category for its LG NeON™ 2 solar panel with Cello Technology. LG Solar received the award at the international trade show Intersolar 2015 in Munich.
Key Benefits Claimed By LG Solar:
- Awarded Top Brand PV Modules 2015 in UK, Benelux, Germany (EUPD Research)
- Highly efficient panels produce more power per panel size – up to 320W panel output (LG NeON 2)
- 12 year product warranty (10 yrs + 2 yrs) (LG NeON 2)
- 25 year linear performance warranty guarantees at least 80.2% power output by the end of the 25th year
- LG Solar Mono X Black modules integrate with the appearance of your roof – more visually appealing than conventional solar panels
With all these positives, LG Solar panels sound like a great option for your solar power system, however, there are three things you must consider first.
LG Solar panels offer panel efficiency rates of up to 19.5%, compared to the market leader which is up to 21%. If your budget is tight, the best performer is probably outside your price range (that high level of efficiency comes at a fairly big price premium) and LG Solar panels are going to be better value for money.
If your roof space is not too constricted, LG Solar panels are a cost efficient choice because you can fit enough panels on the roof to meet your power needs (compared to the higher efficiency panels previously mentioned) at a more reasonable price. However, if your roof space is limited and you want to maximise your power production, LG Solar panels might not be the best choice for you. It’s important to keep in mind that solar is an investment first and foremost. Getting an accredited installer with experience in your local area to consult with you will help you understand what panels will provide the best return for your investment over the life of the system
Even if you are already 100% decided on LG Solar, don’t be too hasty in accepting the first quote you receive. Different installers charge different prices, even for the same product. Installers all buy their products from different places, have different margins and offer varying levels of service. The price you are quoted, even for the exact same product, can vary by hundreds of dollars depending on who you talk to.
The best way to make sure you get the right panel for you at the best price is to compare quotes from Clean Energy Council accredited installers with experience in your area.
