LG Solar Panels
The LG laboratory is certified as a Photovoltaic testing laboratory by TUV and UL – the only solar manufacturer who has been given this certification allowing them to test other manufacturer’s solar power products to ensure that they are to standard. This is proof that the LG manufacturing and testing facilities are one of the world’s best.
LG’s panels are vertically manufactured–meaning that LG undertakes all aspects of manufacturing, from silicon production to solar module assembly, and is serious about being in the solar game for the long-term: parent company LG Electronics has acquired more solar-related patents (172) between 2009 and 2011 than any other solar panel manufacturer. This sort of dedicated research and development is another indicator of the likelihood of the company’s being around in 25 years’ time to service warranties.
LG signs off on every cell. Each solar cell in each solar module is individually checked for integrity and stamped with the LG logo, so customers know they can rely on their modules to perform over the course of their expected working lives
LG Neon Solar Panels
The new, premium NeON 2 panels are LG’s most efficient solar panel, optimising roof space and producing more electricity than standard mono-crystalline modules.
Choosing the premium and efficient NeON 2 panels by LG, can over the years save you money on your electricity bills and installation cost, when compared with a standard solar panel.
The NeON not only generates solid electricity output, but with their black anodised frame also win in stylish appearance. If you are seeking a premium solar product the LG NeON 2 panels are for you.
The NEW GEN 4 LG NeON 2 panels are available in 330w and 300w BLACK (Totally black)! And the best thing about them is they are they same size as a standard 250w solar panel! They are ideal if you a have a shortage of roof space and trying to extract maximum output.
LG solar panels come with a 12 year product warranty and 25 year performance warranty held here in Australia by LG Electronics.
REC Peak Energy Solar Panels
REC (Renewable Energy Corp) was established in 1996 and its Headquarters are based in Oslo, Norway. November 2010, REC opened its new state of the art full automated, integrated wafer, cell and module plant in Tuas, Singapore.
Currently REC has the 8th largest market share out of all panel manufacturers.
REC, being a fully integrated panel manufacturer means they make every component for their solar panels from the polysilicon, wafers, cells to the modules themselves, none of the whole process is outsourced.
Ongoing field testing of 46 solar module brands during all seasons and light conditions by Photon Magazine during 2011 determined REC solar panels to be the best performing panel; generating 6 percent more electricity on average than the other polycrystalline, monocrystalline and thin film panels tested.
The REC Peak Energy solar panel series were also nominated for 2010’s coveted Intersolar Photovoltaic’s Award and won the Solar Industry Award for Module Innovation, presented by Solar PV Management Magazine, in August 2010.
REC solar panels have an exceptional temperature co-effcient of 0.40% which means they will outperform most other panels in hot conditions. They also have 4 bypass diodes instead of the standard 3 diodes to combat shade and low light.
REC solar modules, if installed by Keen 2B Green include an industry leading 12 year product warranty, instead of the normal 10 year industry standard warranty. They also come with a 25 year linear performance warranty.
CANADIAN SOLAR PANELS
Founded in 2001 in Ontario, Canada, by Shawn Qu, Canadian Solar is one of the world’s largest solar companies. Canadian Solar has been publicly traded on the NASDAQ (CSIQ) since 2006. The company is a vertically integrated provider of ingot, wafer, solar cell, solar module and other solar applications. In 2011 it shipped 1.3 GW of photovoltaic panels and reached a production capacity of over 2.4 GW.
While the manufacturing facilities are in China, Canadian Solar has offices in 22 countries, including Australian offices in Sydney and Melbourne.
Canadian Solar was one of the first companies in the industry to offer enhanced product and performance warranty backed by an immediately available and non-cancellable insurance policy.
Canadian Solar panels come with a 10 year workmanship warranty and 25 year performance warranty.

SolarEdge is a provider of power optimizer, solar inverter and monitoring solutions for photovoltaic arrays. These products aim to increase energy output through module-level MPPT. Founded in 2006, SolarEdge established the DC power optimizer segment and is leading it with over 70% market share.
A SolarEdge Power Optimizer is fitted under each solar panel which optimizes energy output by performing Maximum Power Point Tracking (MPPT) individually for each panel and maintains a fixed DC string voltage. Power optimizers also collect performance measurements and telemetries of each panel, and transmit the data over existing power lines.
The SolarEdge solar inverter is responsible for DC to AC inversion while MPPT and voltage management are handled by power optimizers separately for each module. Fixed string voltage ensures operation at the highest efficiency at all times (98% maximum efficiency), independent of string length and temperature.
A web-based and iPhone applications provide module-level, string-level and system-wide PV Monitoring. The software provides alerts on a wide range of issues affecting energy generation that might otherwise go undetected. Data and alerts are presented on a virtual site map and can be pinpointed to specific location to reduce maintenance time and costs.
The SolarEdge system is excellent for installing solar panels on roofs with shade and / or installing solar panels on multiple roof facings, and can outperform other solar installations by up to 25%, for a faster return on investment. Recently in NREL designed independent testing, Solar Edge systems outperformed string and micro inverters.
SolarEdge has an office here in Australia with tech support. The SolarEdge inverter comes with 12 year warranty and the optimizers have 25 years warranty.
