LG has been manufacturing electrical goods since 1958. Solar research commenced in the mid 1980s while actual module production started in 2009. LG prdes itself on manufacturing one of the highest quality and high efficient modules on the market.
LG Electronics operates in over 100 countries including USA, Japan, China, India, Germany, Australia and New Zealand. In Australia, it has offices in every mainland city and the Australian solar unit is based in Sydney. LG has also selectively developed a national network of highly capable dealers and installers.
The current global solar manufacturing capacity of LG is 1 GW, with plans for a 1,8 and then 3GW Gigawatt capacity within the next three years. LG solar panels are manufactured in a fully automated manufacturing facility in Gumi, South Korea. The manufacturing process is vertically integrated. LG undertakes and controls every stage of production – from sourcing the silicon, to manufacturing the cells and the modules. LG panels come with a 12-year parts and labour product warranty and 25-year performance warranty held here in Australia by LG Electronics.
LG has one of most stringent quality control procedures when manufacturing its solar cells and solar modules. In order to be sold in Australia all solar modules have to be tested and pass the IEC standard tests once. LG solar panels are tested in LG’s special testing lab well beyond general IEC standards – from between two and up to four times. Overall over 500 quality control processes are being used to build the modules from scratch.
