LG solar panel options: Mono X modules and NeON modules
LG has two main lines of solar panels for sale: the Mono X modules and the NeON modules. The NeON line is further subdivided into five groups of panels.
LG Mono X and Mono X Plus solar modules
There are a total of 9 Mono X and Mono X Plus solar panels available from LG:
All Mono X and Mono X Plus solar panels have received a Standard rating under EnergySage’s solar panel rating system. This is a factor of average efficiency ratings (16.8% to 17.5%), standard product warranties (12 years), and average solar panel performance in high temperatures, with a temperature coefficient range of -0.41 to -0.42 for this group of panels.
LG NeON solar modules
LG’s broader line of solar panels is their NeON series. It consists of five types of NeON modules: NeON 2, NeON 2 Black, NeON 2 ACe, NeON R, and NeON 72 Cell.
LG NeON 2
The most extensive subset of the NeON solar modules is the NeON 2 group. The NeON 2 module LG335N1C-A5 is the most popular LG panel quoted to consumers on EnergySage, and the top three LG panels on EnergySage are all from the NeON 2 line.
There are thirteen different modules in the NeON 2 line:
All NeON 2 panels are rated Premium on EnergySage – their product specifications are above the industry average, but there are other panels that are higher end. The NeON 2 line’s Premium designation is thanks to high efficiency ratings (ranging from 18.6% to 19.5%) and a 25-year product warranty.
LG NeON 2 Black
LG’s NeON 2 Black panels are very similar to the NeON 2 panels. The main difference between LG’s other solar modules and the NeON 2 Black line is aesthetic – these black panels are designed to be minimally visible and give your home a sleek, modern look.
There are four panels in LG’s NeON 2 Black line of products:
Like the standard NeON 2 line, panels in the NeON 2 Black product line all have earned the Premium rating from EnergySage. Their high efficiency means that, all other things being equal, the NeON 2 Black panels will produce more energy than panels in the Mono X or Mono X Plus categories.
LG NeON 2 ACe
The NeON 2 ACe panel comes with an integrated Enphase microinverter, which makes installation quick and simple. There is one panel from LG in their NeON 2 ACe line, the LG330E1C-A5. It has earned a Premium rating from EnergySage due to its high efficiency rating of 19.3% and its 25-year product warranty.
LG NeON R
The NeON R series is LG’s most premium line of solar panels. The LG350Q1C-A5 panel is the fourth most popular LG panel quoted on EnergySage.
There are four options within the NeON R panel group:
LG’s NeON R panels are top of the line solar equipment that compete with other high-quality products from Panasonic and SunPower. They’ve received a Premium+ rating from EnergySage. They have efficiencies between 20.3% and 21.1%, and perform exceptionally well in high temperatures (with a temperature coefficient of -0.3).
LG NeON 72 Cell
Aesthetics and durability are the main selling points for LG’s NeON 72 Cell panels. 72-cell panels like the NeON 72 Cell line are typically used in ground-mounted and larger utility-scale installations. There are two panels in the NeON 72 Cell line:
With a rating of Premium on EnergySage, the NeON 72 Cell panels are above-average, high-efficiency options for large scale installations.
Selecting the right LG panels for your home or business
There isn’t a single solar panel available that works for every case. If you’re considering installing solar on your home or business, LG can be a solid panel option thanks to its above average efficiencies and solid warranties.
That being said, the best fit for your individual needs depends on your priorities, whether you are looking for a low-cost system, a system with the best performance and warranties available, or one that uses a certain type of solar panel for an exact appearance on your roof.
Regardless of your individual preferences, comparing multiple solar quotes from installers near you can help you pick the most appropriate solar option. By registering your property on the EnergySage Solar Marketplace, you can easily solicit quotes from local installers at no cost, including companies that offer exclusively LG solar panels.
