LG has been manufacturing electrical goods since 1958 and have one of most stringent quality control procedures when manufacturing their solar cells and solar modules.

LG has been in solar research since the mid 1980s. Module production started in 2009 and current capacity is 800MW with plans for Gigawatt capacity within the next 2 years. The manufacturing process is vertically integrated and this means that LG undertakes and controls every production stage from sourcing the silicon to manufacturing the cells and the modules. Overall over 500 quality control processes are being used to build the modules from scratch.

LG Electronics has many offices in over 100 countries including USA, Japan, China, India, Germany, Australia and New Zealand. In Australia they have offices in every mainland city and the Australian solar unit is based in Sydney.

LG has a network of authorized LG Solar Dealers around Australia dealing with LG solar directly. LG applies strict criteria for selecting their dealers including a code of conduct.

LG has its own state-of-the-art intensive testing photovoltaic testing laboratory certified by both TÜV* and UL** as testing under world class conditions. LG are the only solar manufacturer so far who has obtained this dual certification and their testing facilities are one of the world’s best.

In order to be sold in Australia solar modules have to be tested and pass the IEC standard tests once. LG solar panels are tested in their special testing lab not to general IEC standards, for most tests up to four (4) times the IEC standards, ensuring a very robust and long lasting solar module.

LG solar panels are manufactured in a fully automated manufacturing facility in Gumi, South Korea and come with a 12 year parts and labour product warranty and 25 year performance warranty held here in Australia by LG Electronics.

The LG NeON solar module range offers excellent performance from low light to peak sun. The new, premium NeON panels are LG’s most efficient solar panel, optimizing roof space and producing more electricity than standard mono-crystalline modules.

Here’s a short video about this innovative and powerful technology.


Choosing the premium and efficient NeON panels by LG can over the years save you money on your electricity bills and installation cost, when compared with standard panels. The NeON not only generates solid electricity output, but with their black anodised frame also win in stylish appearance. If you are seeking a premium solar product the LG NeON panels are for you. The LG NeON panels are available in a monster 300w size and in a few months we will even have 315W! And the best thing about them is they are they same size as a standard 250w solar panel! They are ideal if you a have a shortage of roof space and trying to extract maximum output.
