BACKWOODS SOLAR ELECTRIC SYSTEMS started as a home based business in 1978. We continue to this day to be dedicated to operating the business with the same commitment to quality goods and services that our customers have come to know since the beginning!

Backwoods Solar is a company specifically dedicated to serving homes, villages and communities so remote that access to utility lines is not practical. For over 37 years, we have specialized in independent electric power for the remote off-grid or grid-tied home. We have nine solar electric specialists offering personalized attention to self-reliant home owners who choose and install their own power systems, as well as larger installers doing off-grid battery based and grid-connected solar around the world.
In the last 5 years we have expanded our focus to offer remote power for telecom systems, water pumping, clinics and rural villages around the world. What makes us unique is that our technicians live in homes that get their power from the wind, water or sun using the products we sell in our catalog. Our team personally answer all letters, email, and calls during business hours, to help with your questions and equipment needs. Your questions will get answered and your needs will be met. It is our earnest goal to leave you completely satisfied.

LG Solar Unveils NeON R with Enhanced Aesthetics and Energy Savings

LG Solar Unveils NeON R with Enhanced Aesthetics and Energy Savings

The NeON R module features "Back Contact" cell technology delivering an entirely black panel that is aesthetically pleasing and energy efficient. The cell's seamless, surface blends perfectly into nearly all rooftop designs while the module's electrodes are positioned on the rear of the cell. Using LG's N-type cell structure, the panels produce 365W of energy, up to 7.3kWp, compared to 5.8kWp of the p-type cell. The module's new design minimizes LID, thereby delivering a longer lifespan and increased energy output.
