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. We do more than make solar modules, we empower customers by providing the most advanced, field proven and highest rated value products in the world.


Benefit

Our ultimate goal is to help the world experience the array of benefits from using Solar power. To realize this goal, we've tapped the resources of our best scientists, engineers, designers and manufacturing experts to bring products to market that truly stand apart. Price, performance, reliability, quality…everything in our line of Grid Ready solar modules is proven and tested like no other.

LG guarantees positive power tolerance (0 ~ +3 %). When the LG 230 W modules are purchased, customers will have additional benefits up to an average of 3.5 W.

The durability of LG's solar modules reinforces our pursuit for quality. LG modules come with internal mechanical load standards (5400 Pa), which are stricter than international standards. Our modules are built to minimize damage from rain, snow and sea wind.

LG applies rigid standards to material procurement, solely targeting products that have undergone previous technical analysis, laboratory tests, and field tests. World-recognized partners supply all of the materials for LG Electronic modules.

Reliable and Guaranteed

Our commitment to you is evident in our unbeatable warranty program. Our warranty program includes a 10-year product warranty and a 25-year power warrant, which guarantees power generation of up to 90% over 12 years and 80% over 25 years.
