LG boosts peak power of the NeON2 BiFacial to 390 watts

03.05.2018

London – The LG Neon2 BiFacial high-performance module from LG Electronics will be available in a 72 cell version. With the extension, LG improves the peak performance of its renowned bifacial module to 390 watts.

LG's bifacial module captures sunlight on both the front and rear sides – thanks to its transparent rear-side film – and transforms it into electricity. The CELLO technology, based on 12-wire cell connectors, reduces electrical losses and allows the module to produce up to 30 per cent more energy than modules without bifaciality. In regions where it snows heavily in winter, the module can also has generates electricity through the active back of the module, even if the front is covered with snow – a real advantage. What’s more, as the module produces electricity through the back of the module and heats up, the snow on the front of the module can also thaw, which is an interesting side effect. Studies have shown that bifacial modules, especially in snowy regions, show a significant increase in yield compared to normal modules.

Extended product and performance guarantee

For the LG Neon 2 BiFacial module, LG now offers a product warranty of 15 instead of twelve years. LG warrants an effective output of no less than 98 per cent for one year from the start of the warranty. From the second year, the actual average annual output for the remaining 24 years will not decrease by more than 0.5 percent, so that by the end of the 25th operational year, an actual output of at least 86 per cent is guaranteed.

"With the addition of the LG Neon 2 BiFacial, we now provide a top-of-the-range module that has no compromises, and that can again significantly increase our performance level. Not only are we highlighting that we take the needs of the market seriously, but are also underlining our commitment to quality and innovation," says Michael Harre, vice president of the EU Solar Business Group at LG Electronics.
