Overview

LG Electronics Inc. is a global leader and technology innovator in consumer electronics, mobile communications and home appliances.

LIFE'S GOOD WHEN IT'S GREEN

We employ more than 87,000 people working in 113 operations, including 96 subsidiaries around the world, with global sales of $45.2 billion in 2012.

LG consists of four business units – Home Entertainment, Mobile Communications, Home Appliance, Air Conditioning and Energy Solutions.

The world needs renewable energy today. To meet the future head on, LG Electronics has made significant inroads in environmentally sound solutions for a healthier and safer planet with its advances in Solar Energy. In 2008, the company proclaimed its charter, 'Life's good when it's green'.

LG plans to reduce greenhouse gases in product usage by 30 million tons yearly, and by 150,000 tons by the year 2020. We have eliminated the use of harmful substances in our manufacturing processes and our efforts have been recognized by TÜV Rheinland of Europe and UL of US.

LG's solar power business was also launched on the basis of the environment-aware leadership of LG Electronics in the same direction. We're not just going green, we are helping build a sustainable future.

Why LG Solar

Twenty years of cutting edge research, immense preparation, and world class development have propelled LG Electronics to the very forefront of renewable energy.

MAXIMUM PERFORMANCE BY AREA

The graph of the maximum performance by area

Installing highly-efficient modules to obtain the most power from the limited area is especially important. LG has increased module power up to 300Wp and it is leading the solar industry

  • Optimal use of your roof area through high module efficiency
  • Reduction of installation costs (fewer modules = saves mounting materials and time)
  • Significantly higher system power than conventional modules

KEEPING PROMISES ON POWER OUTPUT

The graph of LGE’s power output compare to other manufacturers
Best in tests : The chart shows deviations between TÜV flash data and manufacturers normal power data.
LG example : LG providers on average 1.5% more power than stated on the data sheet. Some manufactures supply less module power than stated on their data sheets.

To find the optimal modules for your solar power system you have to be able to trust the manufacturer's information, and LG proved its outstanding reliability through the TÜV flash data test.

  • On average 1.5 % more power than stated by LG
  • Above average guarantees
  • High investment security as the modules perform to LG's promises

TECHNICAL COMPETENCE

LGE ranked the highest for number of applied patents in Europe and USA (2009 to 2012)

Approximately 25 % of the LG Solar workforce is employed in research and development, and they are trying to make the modules always comprise the latest technology.

  • Modules always comprise the latest technology
  • Attractive cost-benefit ratio

TESTING ABOVE EXPECTATIONS

Solar modules are exposed to various environments. LG conducts most of relevant quality tests in its own test lab certified by TÜV and UL.. Also, some tests are run twice as stingent as required by IEC.

  • Assurance that module technology is proven and that each module has been tested before delivery
  • Guarantee that modules have been produced by LG
  • No risk with regard to PID, hotspots etc.

BEAUTY ON THE OUTSIDE

It is important to owners that their homes are not visually impaired by a solar power system. LG modules are unobtrusive in design and fit the roofing type.

  • Your solar power system combines high quality with a timeless design of MonoX series
  • The black modules integrate with the appearance of your roof
  • The modules' high flexibility means that they can be installed vertically and horizontally

FINANCIAL STRENGTH

Only companies with a long tradition, and above all with a strong financial background, are in a position to keep their promises. Insolvent companies can no longer uphold the guarantees they have given.

  • Modules always comprise the latest technology
  • LG is and remains a leader in the development of solar power
  • Attractive cost-benefit ratio
