Your company will be exhibiting at SPI 2018, what is it that makes this an important event for your company?

SPI is the solar industry’s place to be and be seen. This important annual event brings together the largest gathering of professionals in the solar industry in North America. For LG, SPI is the launchpad for new products and the epicenter of customer relations, both nurturing existing relationships and forging new ones. SPI also aligns with LG’s broader green focus. LG's solar power business was launched by the company’s environmentally aware leadership and is rooted in LG’s core environmental sustainability principles. LG is committed to assure that “Life’s Good” for our customers and that includes building a sustainable future. LG sees SPI as a vehicle toward advancing these goals by demonstrating our commitment to renewable energy leadership.


Highlight 2 or 3 products you will be showcasing at the event.

A number of industry-leading LG Solar innovations will be showcased at SPI 2018, led by two key products in the famous LG NeON family:

  • LG NeON® 2 Solar Panel

LG’s flagship module, NeON 2, combines a new level of performance and flexibility for home and business owners seeking to save on their utility bills and take positive steps for the environment. The innovative Cello technology consists of 12 thin wires instead of three busbars, offering significantly improved performance and reliability even over the original NeON high-performance solar panel. And, the award-winning NeON 2 comes with  industry-leading 25-year performance and produce warranties, highlighting LG's commitment to high-quality solar modules.

  • LG NeON® R Solar Panel

LG brings its most powerful and energy efficient solar module technology to Solar Power International in the form of the LG NeON R. Our highest power module for residential installations has a power output up to 365W. Features include the highest wind / snow load rating in the industry, flexibility in array design, and ease of installation. The ultra-efficient back-contact NeON R comes with industry-leading 25-year performance and product warranties, giving customers confidence in a brand they can trust.


When you book a booth for a tradeshow like this what are your expectations and what does your company hope to accomplish at the event?

SPI is a really busy show for the LG team, but we encourage our employees and partners to take full advantage of the many educational sessions onsite. Staying on top of industry trends, and in some cases leading those trends, is important to maintaining our role as a leading player in the U.S. market.


A tradeshow of this magnitude is extremely busy and stressful for the staff of exhibiting companies.  Any fun things or places your team can suggest in Anaheim to help unwind?

We’re taking LG’s “Life’s Good” mantra to Southern California this September at Solar Power International. We recommend taking in the local sights, cuisines and famous beaches – maybe even a quick pit stop at the Happiest Place on Earth – over the course of the convention.

LG Solar

The history of LG's solar business can be traced back to the mid-1980's, when the LG central research lab started R&D on solar technologies. In 2004, the LG business group created synergy and prepared for mass production by consolidating several solar research laboratories under the LG Electronics umbrella. Using decades of R&D experiences, LG Electronics broke ground on its first solar cell and module factory.
