LG NeON R ACe LG380A1C-V5 380W AC Solar Panel Review

NeON R solar cell technology
The high-efficiency cell structure used in the LG NeON R ACe LG380A1CV5 solar panel has many round wires underneath the cell instead of a few ribbons on top. This reduces electrical loss by increasing the number of electrical paths in the cell.

High Performance More Power Generation

The LG NeON R ACe LG370A1C-V5 is a high-power luxury module boosting energy efficiency and maximizing system volume even with limited rooftop space.

Newly Developed Back Contact Technology

LG NeON® R adopts advanced cell structure that places all electrodes on the rear side. The electrical current is separated into many passes reducing the loss of electricity. The new structure contributes to an increase in module power as well as an improvement in temperature coefficient.

Less Power Generation Loss

Sometimes a micro crack or finger electrode erosion can happen by natural degradation of mechanisms in the outskirts of the solar cell. The tight layout of wires in the LG cell structure improves the electrical path that would otherwise be blocked by these defects over time.

NeON R ACe AC solar panel micro inverter and MC cables
The outdoor rated micro inverter is mounted on the rear. 2 MC type cables; one 47.2", one 43.3" are securely connected to the micro inverter like a junction box. This allows for simple installation without a trunk cable or additional connectors.

Advantage of a Space-efficient Panel

There are many factors to consider when installing solar modules on a roof, i.e. shape, direction and shade risks. The LG NeON R offers a flexible solar design with high power system capacity and efficient space management.

Outdoor Rated Micro Inverter

The micro inverter mounted on the rear of the module also serves as a outdoor rated junction box with MC cables. The micro inverter is rated Outdoor - NEMA 250 type 6 for peace of mind beyond its 25 year warranty.

Peak Performance on Hot Days

While strong sunlight helps solar modules generate energy, it also increases the system’s temperature and decreases performance. The LG NeON R solar panel maintains peak performance on hot, sunny days using an improved temperature coefficient.

Quality Wafer with Extremely Low LID

The LG NeON® R based on high quality N-type wafer can minimize the Light Induced Degradation, the power drop right after installation. The initial difference of performance continues for the whole lifespan of the solar system.

Extended Product Warranty

Industry leading 25 years product warranty and a 25 year linear power warranty.

LG NeON R ACe Solar Panel Quality Assurance

Quality-assurance of LG Solar NeON R ACe solar panels is a top priority, that's why LG solar panels are created using the most technologically advanced processes available. LG's state-of-the-art manufacturing facilities are designed to produce high quality, high performance cell panels that come ready to perform.

LG embarked on a solar energy source research program in 1985. This research leading to modern LG solar panel technology was supported by LG Group's rich experience in the semi-conductor, LCD, chemistry and materials industry. LG released the first Mono X series solar panels to the market in 2010. LG Mono X solar panels were exported to 32 countries in the following 2 years thereafter. In 2013, LG NeON (previously known as Mono X NeON) won the "Intersolar Award", which proved LG is the leader of innovation in the industry. With the LG NeON R ACe Series, many significant refinements have been made to be able to provide some of the most efficient, reliable and easy to install solar panels on the photovoltaic market today.
