LG Electronics USA's innovative collection of solar modules and technologies on display at Solar Power International (SPI) this week is headlined by the brand new LG NeON™ R module with "Back Contact" cell technology. LG Solar is also unveiling the award-winning NeON™ 2 Bi-Facial solar module for the U.S. market and highlighting the LG NeON™ 2 72-cell solar module for commercial installation.
"At LG we are dedicated to providing green energy solutions in both the residential and commercial markets that provide not only cost and energy savings, but also beautiful, aesthetic designs that home and business owners are proud to display on their rooftops." said Stephen Hahm, senior vice president, Energy Business Center, LG Electronics USA.
Innovative, Beautiful NeON R Modules
At SPI, LG is introducing the company's first Back Contact cell design on the innovative NeON R module. The new cell is beautifully configured with a virtually seamless façade, perfectly blending into nearly all rooftop designs. Instead of visible busbars and wiring on the surface, the Back Contact cell boasts a completely black aesthetic that is both visually pleasing and energy efficient.
In addition to a sleek design that owners will be proud to display, LG's NeON R module boasts high efficiency. The cell design positions all the module's electrodes on the rear side of the cell and features LG's N-type cell structure, allowing the panels to produce 365W of energy, up to 7.3kWp, compared to p-type cell's 5.8kWp. This N-type cell structure can also minimize the Light Induced Degradation (LID) – the initial power drop caused by the Boron-Oxygen complex – giving it a longer lifespan and higher output over the lifetime of the module.
In addition to higher energy output and beautiful design, the brand new cell design allows the panels to be installed in the shadow of a tree or chimney, which previously posed an issue.
