The contacts at the back mean no losses from shading by front-mounted cell connectors.

This week we will present solar modules that are characterised by markedly high efficiency. To start us off, here is LG's Neon R:

The solar module Neon R from LG Electronics is now available. The module with 60 cells is part of the company's V5 series. Positive and negative charges are collected on the rear side of the back-contacted module. This means that there is no shading due to cell connectors on the front side. The module has an output of 375 watts. LG grants a performance warranty of 90.8 per cent after 25 years. As of September, the Neon R Prime with a black backsheet is also available. (mfo)
