LG Electronics has announced the launch of an advanced rooftop solar module range the company says is “ideally suited” to Australian conditions and which will become available to the market this month or next.
The new models come from LG’s NeON range – including the LG NeON H, LG NeON H Black, LG NeON H Bi-Facial, LG NeON R and NeON R Prime – and herald one of the “most significant” new product launches in Australia so far, the company said on Tuesday.
The flagship LG NeON H module is said to be particularly well suited for the Australian climate, including outstanding performance in high-UV and high-heat conditions and in-built salt corrosion resistance.
The NeON H uses N-type cells with a normal operating temperature of 42°C and temperature coefficient of -0.33 percent per degree Celsius. LG says its N-type cell technology is especially designed to reduce electrical loss.
“The NeON H is built to perform, built to last,” said Gus Paviani LG Electronics Australia’s general manager of solar and energy, on Tuesday.
“The unique mix of low light conditions, high-temperatures and salt environments in Australia makes the LG NeON H particularly well suited for the local climate.
“LG rigorous hail resistance tests ensure the reliability of the modules under severe weather conditions. LG is continuing its commitment to providing efficient and effective renewable energy solutions that stand the test of time.”
LG said the module range was its most reliable and efficient renewable energy solution, ideally suited to residential and commercial rooftop applications and also high performing in low light conditions.
The highly durable energy modules are also said to be able to withstand harsh weather conditions and to be resistant to light-induced degradation, the loss of performance from exposure to sunlight in the initial hours after installation.
