Momentum continues to build for LG Electronics' most important solar module product roll-out since the company’s involvement in the PV industry.
At Solar Power International 2013, the LG ‘MonoX NeON’ module takes centre stage with its suite of mainstream N-Type cell manufacturing technology tweeks that include selective emitter’s, fine line electrodes, surface passivation and lightweight construction, all in a compact 60-cell panel design.
The result is a module series that delivers high-efficiency output of up to 300 watts with 18.3% module efficiency.
“Customer response this year for the MonoX NeON has been outstanding, with demand exceeding our expectations,” said James Lee, senior vice president, energy solutions, LG Electronics USA. “With LG, it's all possible. We're delivering an attractive price-per-watt with high-efficiency solar modules that have the same durability and size as earlier PV systems, but that yield higher wattage and are significantly easier to install.”
Paul Benson, CEO of leading solar distributor Focused Energy, agrees. “PV installers and dealers need partners they can depend on, from supply chain and financing to technology and service. A solar installation is a major long-term investment, which is why we work with experienced companies with staying power, like LG, to supply our modules.”
Very much with the US market in mind, LG is previewing a new AC solar module with an integrated LG-developed and LG-manufactured microinverter, both planned for introduction in 2014.
The MonoX NeON should be investigated at LG’s booth #1705 at SPI.
