The high-performance solar module LG NeON R was recently awarded the Solar Power Portal Award 2018 for the most innovative product of the year. The compact 60-cell solar panel of the solar specialist LG Electronics was able to outrival 25 nominees.
Thanks to its innovative back contact cell technology, the NeON R model can generate a power output which is 20 % higher than of other monocrystalline models and 30 % higher than of polycrystalline modules. The revised cell structure maximizes the absorption of sunlight and increases efficiency. Thus, the innovative module is particularly suitable for smaller roofs or limited load tolerances. The NeON R features a performance of up to 370 Wp, 25 years product and linear power output warranty with an actual output of at least 88.4%, of the nameplate power output level specified on the module by the end of the 25th year, a special longevity under real conditions and an extremely aesthetic design.
Michael Harre, Vice President of the EU Solar Business Group at LG Electronics Germany, says: "We are very proud to have won the product innovation award at this year's Solar Power Portal Awards. Its recognition as a leader in product innovation sets LG Solar and the NeON R module apart from the crowd. The award emphasizes our commitment to further raise the technological standard in the solar industry with our products and to strengthen our market position among the leading suppliers."
