Most solar panels on the market have an average efficiency rating of 14%.
This number represents the panel’s efficiency of converting the sun’s energy into power. LG solar panels have efficiency ratings of 20.3%-20.8%.
LG panels turn on earlier and shut down later than conventional solar panels. LG panels also perform impressively in overcast and rainy conditions. High-Heat Conditions: Most might say that a hot sunny day is the ideal solar-production day—but because of the limitations inherent in conventional solar, some panels underperform and might shut down in high-heat conditions. The n-type cells used in LG NeON® R have almost no boron. This leads to less LID (Light Induced Degradation) right after installation.
Because of how conventional solar is manufactured, it undergoes a “break-in period.” This period is when conventional solar is turned on and allowed to produce power. Conventional solar panels lose 3% of their efficiency and never recover it. Thankfully, LG NeON® R panels never experience “break-in.”
All these advantages save the consumer money, both immediately and over time.
