LG WINS PHOTOVOLTAICS AWARD AT 2013 INTERSOLAR
Sydney, 1 July, 2013 - LG Electronics Australia (LG) today announced that LG’s innovative solar product was recently recognised at the 2013 Intersolar in Munich, Germany with the Photovoltaics Award for its recently released 60 Cell, 290W, 300W and 310W NeON solar panel range.
The award-winning high performance LG Mono X NeON solar modules boast both improved efficiency and relatively low costs for the end consumer. Special innovations include the use of N-type (bifacial) solar cells, which use solar insulation on both sides. The modules, measuring only 1m x 1.6m, the same size as conventional 60 Cell 250W Mono crystalline products, also offer an efficiency of 18.3% for the 300W module and 18.9% for the 310W module.
Furthermore, at 17.3 kg, the solar modules are especially light-weight, but with strong wind loading and a high resistance to environmental effects.
“The 2013 Intersolar jury was especially impressed with the solar modules’ combination of new technologies, the sustainable use of resources, and their economic viability,” said Markus Lambert, LG Australia’s Solar and Lighting National Sales Manager.
The LG NeON range is now available from Solar Juice Australia (contact: 02 9725 2222) and will be displayed at LG’s stand during the upcoming Clean Energy Week.
