LG Solar Panels Brisbane
LG have stopped manufacturing solar panels. They announced this earlier this year. Suddenly too!
It has caused many Brisbane sellers of LG panels to panic and be frustrated with what has happened.
However, LG has stated that LG Australia is now covering the warrany on LG panes sold prior to them finishing up.
A good panel is manufactured by a good company, with a good warranty, with a good track record, with good workmanship and a good brand. Most of these are easy for LG to achieve since LG Electronics turns over more than all of the top 10 solar panel makers combined.
LG Energy is a division of South Korean technology behemoth, LG Corporation. The parent company has been conducting research & development since 1979.
Beginning their R&D into polycrystalline solar cells in 2005, by 2007 LG built their first large solar energy farm, a 14MW solar plant in Taean, Korea. Although their first power plant did not use LG panels, since they hadn’t been made yet, it’s worth noting that the market leader of panels at that time was Sharp, which has already stopped production.
Initially coming with a 10-year product warranty and 25-year performance warranty, LG has been the first big brand to go the whole 9 yards and hit Aussies with a 25-year product warranty on top of the 25-year performance warranty.
