LG NeON™ 2
LG’s new module, LG NeON™ 2, adopts Cello technology. Cello technology replaces 3 busbars with 12 thin wires to enhance power output and reliability.
Newly Developed Cello Technology™
LG has introduced newly developed ‘Cello Technology™ (Cell connection with Electrically Low loss, Low stress and Optical absorption enhancement)’ which increases power output and improves appearance.
Extremely Low LID Cells
The boron (B) and oxygen (O) pair within the p-type cell eliminates the electrons that were created to generate energy. But inside the LG NeON™ 2, there are almost no B-O pairs. This is why LG NeON™ 2 has almost no LID*. * LID: Light Induced Degradation
Double-sided Cell Structure
LG NeON™ 2 cell produces energy from both the front and back. By absorbing light from even the backside, the cells raise efficiency. This makes LG NeON™ 2 cells particularly more efficient than conventional cells in mornings and evenings when the incident angle is lower.
Less Power Generation Loss
When micro crack or finger electrode erosion happens by natural degradation of mechanisms in the outskirts of the solar cell, LG NeON™ 2 reduces down performance by blocking the electrical path due to the tight layout of wires.
Improved Absorption of Light
Cello Technology™ improves the absorption of light with circular-shaped wires and scatters light more effectively.
Higher Efficiency Installation Savings
Compared to a conventional multi module with 72 cells, LG NeON™ 2 achieves higher power output with 60 cells, making it easy to manage space when installing large scale systems. Also, with lower Voc than the 72 Cell module, LG NeON™ 2 increases module quantity per ‘1 string’ decreasing the total number of strings and leading to lower costs.
Enhanced Physical Durability
With its newly reinforced frame design, LG NeON™ 2 modules are designed to endure a front load up to 6000 Pa, and a rear load up to 5400 Pa.

Advantage The IRR Comparison
* The comparison between the IRR (Internal Rate of Return) was calculated internally at LG to compare the relative return rate between different modules. Therefore, this return rate is not guaranteed. Further, the rate may differ according to the area and date of the analysis.
Enhanced Performance Warranty
The LG NeON 2 features an enhanced performance warranty. We've reduced the annual degradation from -0.7/yr to -0.6/yr, and LG has also extended the product’s warranty for 2 additional years.
Advantage Space-efficient Panel
LG NeON™ 2 reduces the space needed for installation due to its high module efficiency. The size and efficiency of the modules lets users consider the shadow of physical objects, such as trees or a chimney, resulting in the most optimal system deployment.

More Power Generation
LG NeON™ 2 will maximize the solar power system capacity, producing more electricity and increasing the customer’s economic benefits. * Capacity of solar power system with 20 modules (60 cells)
High Efficiency Cell Structure
High Performance at Weak Sunlight
LG NeON™ 2 gives good performance even on cloudy days due to its low energy reduction in weak sunlight. * Relative performance compared with the performance at 1000W/m
Improved Temperature Coefficient
LG NeON™ 2 has improved the temperature coefficient to -0.37 from -0.41,
the actual output can be increased to max. 3 on the daylight time. * Based on PV Syst simulation
