LG solar panels are one of the best choices

LG is a world-renowned company for producing high-quality electronics. LG solar panels are ranked among the top panels in the world. Whether you are looking for a residential or business solar panel to install, LG solar panels are one of the best choices. When you are evaluating the best solar panel to install on your premise, it is imperative that you consider the number of years the company has been operational. There are four key factors when it comes to solar panel purchase: price, warranty, performance, and efficiency are the main parameters used when purchasing solar panels. It is imperative that you purchase a solar panel that will serve you for a long time without causing major problems on the roof or existing structures.

Efficiency

Solar panel efficiency means how well the solar panel will capture sunlight and convert it into usable electricity. When you want to buy a solar panel, it is important that you look at its efficiency. A high-efficiency solar panel will produce more power and electricity compared to low-efficiency panel even under the same conditions. You should look for high-efficiency solar panels because they will help you meet your energy needs without compromising on the quality of life. When it comes to efficiency, LG solar panels varies depending on the model you choose for your house. On the lower end, LG panels have 16.9% efficiency and the premium models have increased efficiency which goes up to 19.6% efficiency. This range of efficiency is usually ideal for home solar systems and the high-efficiency solar panels usually come with a high price tag.

Temperature Coefficient or Performance

Temperature Coefficient or Performance

LG solar company has worked to improve the temperature coefficient and performance of their solar panels. Temperature coefficient indicates how well the solar panel will perform in less ideal conditions. Solar panels operate well when they are kept in ideal conditions or in cool temperature especially 25 degree Celsius. The temperature coefficient gives you an idea of the solar panel performance and how it will change during hot summer days or during cold winter days. For every degree Celsius above the standard temperature, the solar panel electricity production will decrease. For example, LG LG310N1C-G4 panel is tagged with the temperature coefficient of -0.38%. This means that when the temperature rises from 25 degree Celsius to 26 degree Celsius, production of electricity will reduce by 0.38%. If the temperature increases by up to 10 degree Celsius, then electricity production will decrease by 3.8%.

The temperature coefficient is an essential metric to consider because the solar panels will see more cold or hotter days over the course of its use. Ideally, the temperature coefficient of the solar panel should be as close to zero as possible. However, this is not possible to produce because the material affects the quality of the panel. In this context, a solar panel with a temperature coefficient of -0.4% is better than that with a temperature coefficient of -0.5%.

Warranty

Warranty

Warranty

Whether you are buying a television, car or solar panels, the manufacturer is required to produce a warranty card that will help you backup your product. Solar panel material warranty is sometimes called equipment warrant or product warranty. It is a guarantee that the manufacturer will replace the solar panel in case the equipment fails because of environmental issues or manufacturing defects. Most solar panel producers in the market offer a 10-year warranty but it is important that you buy solar panels with a warranty of 12, 15 and 25-year warranty.
