LG goes ‘gap-free’ with new NeON H+ Black solar panel
LG Business Solutions launched the new LG NeON H+ Black solar panel, the first module to employ the company’s gap-free technology for impressive energy efficiency. LG’s half-cut cells employ new wiring technology to increase resistance to external impact and thermal stress compared to a full cell module, while the elimination of gaps between cells results in a sleek, uniform design.
“With our new NeON H+ Black solar panel, homeowners now have an option that provides the LG standard of high efficiency and powerful energy output in a beautifully designed and built module with a uniform appearance,” said Brian Lynch, director of solar business development at LG Electronics USA.
LG NeON H+ Black solar panel generates an output of 405W from its 132 half-cut cells and can help meet a household’s power needs even in low-light conditions.
With a temperature coefficient of -0.33 percent per degree Celsius, the N-type half-cut cells are less adversely affected by hot temperatures.
Performance is further boosted by the gap-free design which reduces the distance energy must travel by eliminating the empty space between cells. The panel’s cells overlap by 0.5 millimeters, which allows more cells to fit in the same amount of space. LG says this also helps protect the wiring connecting the cells from impact.
LG NeON H+ Black panels come with a 25-year limited warranty for a performance level of 90.6 percent of initial performance even up to 25 years of continuous use.
