About LG, Solar Panels

LG solar panels review

LG Solar produces high quality, tier 1 solar panels and are part of the giant South Korean company LG. While current production capacity isn't clear, in 2017 the company produced around 2 gigawatts of panels. While this is only 23% of what the world leader Jinko produced in the same year, LG Solar is still a large player - and is focused on the premium panel market.

All the panels LG Solar currently sell in Australia have a 25 year full replacement product warranty, which is one of the best available in the world.  Unlike most manufacturers, their product warranty includes the cost of labour required to install replacement panels. 

LG Solar now sells four models of panels in Australia, the NeON 2, the NeON H, the higher efficiency NeON R, and the more entry-level Mono X Plus. The NeON 2, H and R have product and performance warranties of 25 years, while the Mono X Plus has a 15 year product warranty with a 25 year performance warranty.

LG has offices in every mainland state capital. While Tasmania misses out, this is much better coverage than most tier one manufacturers who usually only have a single office in Australia, or in some cases, none at all.

LG Solar Panels Are Reliable

LG claim that by the time they had installed 360,000 in Australia, only 9 had been returned - mostly due to poor installation.

LG Is A Huge Company

LG Solar is part of LG Electronics which is part of the South Korean corporation LG which used to go by the surprisingly chipper name, Lucky Goldstar. LG is enormous and has a market capitalisation of over $14 billion.

The net wealth of the entire population of the nation of Tonga comes to less than $14 billion. This means the LG Corporation has more money than some countries.  (Note I’m not saying the value of Tonga itself is less than $14 billion, as the whole can be worth more than the sum of its parts. For example, I’m sure we could get Lex Luthor to pay more than $14 billion for Tonga as a whole.)

LG is involved in a wide range range of areas covering chemicals, electronics, and communications. The company has so many fingers in so many pies I'm surprised they haven't grafted extra arms to their CEO.

While LG headquarters is in the South Korean capital of Seoul, solar panel manufacture takes place in the industrial city of Gumi, which, through some dark sorcery, actually manages to have a worse climate than Seoul.

LG has been tooling around with solar cells in some form or another for over 20 years, but they only entered panel manufacturing in 2009.

Mono X Plus panels

The original "Mono X" series of LG panels was phased out of Australia a few years ago - but LG have re-launched the Mono X line with their "Mono X Plus" panel series, which carry a lower 15-year product warranty compared to the NeON series of panels. 

NeON 2 Panels

LG NeON panels come in two different types, the LG NeON 2, and the LG NeON 2 Black.  LG NeOn 2 panels can have an efficiency of up to 21.4% which can make them very useful for making good use of a limited amount of roof space.  The LG NeON 2 Black has slightly lower efficiency, but some people like its dark colour, so I highly recommend it for people who think black is the new black.

All the panels are salt mist and ammonia corrosion resistant and so are suitable for installation anywhere in Australia.

NeON R Panels

LG Solar's NeON R panels are of even higher efficiency than their NeON 2 panel and are up to 22% efficient.

NeON H Panels

The NeON H rooftop range will be available in 370W – 385W capacities in Australia from June or July 2021. Offering an efficiency of 20.1% – 20.9%, the NeON H is comprised of 120 half-cut solar cells.

To see more specifications of these products and compare them against other brands, see the SolarQuotes solar panel comparison table.

LG Chem Produces Battery Storage

LG produces a home battery storage system  that is made by LG Chem and not LG Solar - these two parts of the company probably have nothing to do with each other.

Warranty Claim Procedure For Orphaned LG Customers

If you have purchased LG panels from a company that has since gone out of business, you should contact LG on 1800 042 568. They have advised that they have a dedicated dealer network that can arrange replacement of panels under warranty. Labor costs involved with panel warranty replacement are covered.

A Reliable Solar Panel At A Premium Price

LG panels have an impressive 25 year full replacement warranty on the NeON 2, R and H.  This is among the best in the industry.  At the time of writing June 2021 they are no longer the lowest cost panels with this level of warranty coverage. But if you are looking for high quality, reliable panels, then LG solar is a very good choice - and as the reviews below indicate, many Australian customers agree.

LG NeonH 385W panels

Pumping out lots of power so far, on cloudy and even rainy days. So far they have survived a severe wind storm and a huge hail storm (in just the first five weeks!), and no problems at all. Glad I went for high-quality panels, with better hail resistance than most.

The panels are producing enough power to satisfy our daytime energy requirements and have sufficient power left over to fully charge the battery. Since the system, including the panels, were installed over 12 months ago we have had no issues with the functioning of the panels.

A manufacturer-backed 25 year LG warranty on the performance of these panels was important to me. I see LG as a large reputable Korean company operating in Australia and likely to be in business here in 25 years. I could have bought cheaper products but I don't need the hassle. Two story house, 3 phase power. A roof with lots of triangles. Limited access to the North. I was always going to have to pay more for installation. So I needed a system that was going to be reliable for 25 years once I had paid to put it up there.

I was always attracted to the advantages of a more premium panel. As we live right across the beach, it's certification to level 6 against salt mist corrosion made compared with alternatives made this choice easy. Although almost all panel brands came with a 25 year warranty, I would rather the panels perform through the warranty period rather than have to replace them under the warranty!

I spent a lot of time researching and decided to stick with LG panels. Their 25 year product warranty is second to none. Great performance and consistency.
