Quality solar generates more power for years
Choosing premium quality panels from a renowned manufacturer like LG has multiple benefits.
By investing in panels like the MonoX Plus or the NeON2, you receive an extended product warranty, better performance and a long lasting trouble free system.
The LG Mono X Plus panel uses a half-cut P-Type cell with 15 years product warranty. This panel offers an excellent compromise between price and performance, without sacrificing anything on quality and durability.
The LG NeON2 panel uses a double-sided N-Type cell with 25 years product warranty. This type of solar cell will last even longer and produce more power when you need it the most, such as in low light and high temperature conditions.
LG MonoX Plus & LG NeON2 compared
|Feature||LG MonoX Plus||LG NeON2||More info|
|Product warranty||15 years||25 years||A standard product warranty for solar panels is 10 years. The longer the product warranty, the more return on investment you can expect. On a standard system in Canberra, the additional 10 year product warranty on NeON2 can provide an extra $16,000 in warranted savings, compared to Mono X Plus.|
|Panel efficiency||19.8%||20.8%||Higher panel efficiency means more electricity per square meter of the roof.|
|Panel wattage||370W||360W||The MonoX Plus is a slightly bigger panel, meaning despite the marginally lower nameplate wattage, the NeON2 is more efficient.|
|Cell type||Mono-Crystalline, P-type||Mono-Crystalline, N-type||P-Type Mono-Crystalline is the common standard.
N-type Mono-Crystalline is the more light sensitive and higher efficient technology.
|Cell technology||Half cut
double sided N-type
|Cello technology in NeON2 panel absorbs light from the rear of the panel via double sided cells.|
|1st year production loss due to aging||2.5% leaving 97.5% after 12 months||2.0% leaving 98% after 12 months||Degradation of solar panels means the panel loses generation capacity over time. Lower degradation means more electricity generation by the system in future years.|
|Degradation each year after year one – to year 25||0.40% per year||0.33% per year||Over 25 years, different panels degrade at different rates. The less degradation, the more warranted production you get during the lifespan of the panel.|
|Panel degradation after 10 years and 25 years||93.9% – 10 years
87.9% – 25 years
|95.09% – 10 years
90.08% – 25 years
|After 25 years, the LG Neon2 panel offers an impressive 90.08% warranted performance. This means that after 25 years, the panel should lose less than 10% of its initial production capacity.|
|Temperature coefficient||-0.36%||-0.34%||Solar panels don’t cope well with heat as they lose efficiency in higher temperatures. LG panels are performing better in hotter conditions, compared to standard panels. The lower the temperature coefficient number, the better.|
|Weight and dimensions (mm)||19kg
1776 x 1052 x 40
1700 x 1016 x 40
|The smaller the panel, the more you can fit on your roof. A lighter panel will also put less strain on the roof structure.|
