Is LG Solar a good brand? Are LG Solar Panels any good?

Without question, LG Solar Panel are some of the best panels on the market.

When considering solar panels for your house LG PV Panels provide ultra high performance for a premium price.

Solar Run recommends LG Solar Panels when high efficiency and performance are most important.

They provide a 25 year product warranty! In comparison, other Solar panel manufacturers typically provide 10 or 12 years Product Warranty.  Like other major Tier 1 panel manufacturers they provide a 25 year Performance Warranty.

If you are comparing solar panel prices then you will notice that LG Solar Panels Price are high. However, if you want the most efficient solar power system and want to maximise your return on investment over the 25 year performance warranty of the panel then you will be looking at LG Solar.

They also supply a “Black” panel that provides a different “look” than other solar panels. While most people are looking at the return on investment of their solar installation, you might be thinking about “how” the panels look on your roof. If you are looking for a “Black” panel then you will be looking at LG Solar Panels.

Their panels are engineered in South Korea with corporate headquarters and significant manufacturing also in South Korea. They have a local office in every state capital with the exception of Tasmania.

They are regarded as one of the top panel manufacturers ranked by performance, produce Tier 1 panels, and part of the very large LG company.

About the company

Why LG Solar?
The fourth generation solar panels benefit from years of LG research. Their solar panels have seen many improvements that really matter, from longer product warranties and higher efficiency to stronger framing, lower long term degradation, excellent corrosion protection, superior low light performance and increased wind loading.

LG Electronics, Inc. (LG) is a widely diversified global leader and technology innovator in consumer electronics, turning over more than Aus $48 billion in 2010. Unlike some rival panel manufacturers, whose fortunes fall and rise with the ups and downs of the solar industry, LG manufactures leading flat panel TVs, home appliances, communication equipment, LED lighting and solar modules.

LG walks the talk regarding environmental leadership. We have set a greenhouse gas reduction goal and established our management system accordingly. For example, in 2010 we cut greenhouse gas emissions from product manufacturing by 160,000 tons compared with 2008 emissions.

  • $48 Billion AUD Annual Sales Revenue (LG Group in 2010).
  • 230,000 Employees (LG Group).
  • 6GW Cumulative Shipments (As of Q4 2017)
  • 12 Busbar design (other typically have 4-6 Busbars).

When you want the best panel for Australian conditions.

Mono Perc Panels are better suited to Australian conditions than a “Poly” Panel because we get very cold temperatures in Winter and very hot temperatures in Summer. If you need a panel that works in the heat of summer and the cold of winter consider any LG Solar panel.

When you have problems with shading on your roof.

If your house has issues with shading you might consider panel optimisers. Optimisers and Half Cell Panel Technology reduces the impact of shading. While LG panels provide some of the best performance, they do not offer a Half Cell Panel option.

When you need an affordable solar panel.

If you are prioritising affordability over performance then LG Solar Panels are not for you. Their panels provide higher efficiency and therefore power output over the long term but this comes at a higher cost.

When you are considering adding battery storage to your solar system.

If you want to add a battery to your system then a “Mono” PV module is a very good choice. Thanks to the pv systems high conversion efficiencies these panels are a great choice if you are considering adding energy storage or claiming feed in tariffs. If you want to add a battery then any LG Solar Panel will work well.

When you need a panel manufacturer that can back the warranty.

While there are no guarantees, LG is regarded as one of the best panel manufacturers in the world and is rated as a Tier 1 company. Their product warranty is better than other leading brands. Their performance warranty is outstanding. All of their panels are clean energy council approved.
