LG has recently announced a decision to close its solar panel business, and that this will occur during the 2nd quarter of 2022.
In a statement, LG Electronics Australia Managing Director Dan Lim said:
“LG Electronics Inc. (LG) has been closely evaluating the future direction of the LG solar panel business from the perspective of the company’s overall business portfolio, remaining open to all possibilities. After a careful review of all possible options, LG has announced it is closing the solar module production and sales business.
“The decision comes as uncertainties in the global solar power market continue to increase due to a variety of contributing factors, including the intensification of price competition and the rising cost of raw materials.”
Regarding warranty and customer support, General Manager of Solar & Energy at LG Electronics Australia, Gus Paviani stated:
“LG Electronics Australia will continue to provide warranty and after-sales support for LG solar panels for the warranty period and in accordance with applicable regulations.”

We would like to thank the LG Solar Australia team for the outstanding support provided to us during this time. It has been a pleasure meeting and working with you all.
While we still have NeON H+ panels available, we don’t expect our remaining stock to last much longer based on the popularity of the LG panels and current demand.
“At SolarWise Wagga our philosophy is simple, we aim to provide relevant and reliable information, quality service, and the highest grade of products at a competitive price.”
