CANADIAN SOLAR PANELS
Canadian Solar is a producer of tier 1 panels. Despite their name, any panels you buy from them in Australia will not be made in Canada. At the time of writing in September 2016 perhaps 10% of their manufacturing capacity is in Canada, but those panels are for the North American market only. Canadian Solar panels we purchase are most likely to be made in China.
Their panels carry a 10 year product warranty which is standard for the industry. Most of their panels are certified as corrosion resistant and so are suitable for installation anywhere in Australia. Canadian Solar has an Australian office and unlike most panel manufacturers it is in Melbourne rather than Sydney.
LG has been involved in a number of comparison tests of the LG panels against many other brand panels. LG Neon models are consistently among the best performing in these tests. The N-type doping of the Neon cells results in extremely low Light Induced Degradation (LID) when compared with the standard P-type cells. This means more electricity generation over the life of the panel. LG Neon 2 panels have received additional certification including for; Salt Mist Corrosion to maximum severity 6. Ammonia Resistance certification and PID Resistance Tests. LG solar panels are tested between 2 to 4 times the International Standards at our in-house testing laboratories, ensuring a very robust and longer lasting solar module.
The quality control of LG world-class production processes is monitored and improved to Six Sigma quality control standards, which includes 500+ monitoring points to effectively maintain and improve our uncompromising standards. LG modules have a strong double walled frame and screwed corners.
When it comes to wind forces (rear load) many competitor modules are certified to 2400 Pascal. LG modules are certified to more than double – 5400 Pascal, making them very sturdy and strong. LG is using an anti-reflective coating on the panels glass as well as on the cell surface to ensure more light is absorbed in the panel and not reflected. More absorbed light means more electricity generation. Solar panels slowly lose ability to generate power as they get hotter. LG neon 2, has an improved temperature co-efficient to our previous model, which means in high temperatures LG neon 2 panels will deliver higher output.
PID (Potential Induced Degradation) affects the long term ability of panels to produce high level electricity output. LG panels have anti PID technology and have been successfully tested by leading third party laboratories regarding PID resistance. “CELLO” Multi wire bus bar cell technology lowers electrical resistance and increases panel efficiency, giving more power per panel and provides a more uniform look to the panel. All LG solar panels are manufactured in a custom designed and fully automated production line by LG in Gumi, South Korea ensuring extremely low tolerances. This means great consistency between panels.
