LG solar panels used in net-zero home trade show installation
Solar panels from LG Electronics are delivering high-performance energy savings to The New American Remodel (TNAR), the official show home of the 2019 International Builders’ Show in Las Vegas this week.
The National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) named LG Electronics USA official partner for the net-zero TNAR home in the Nevada desert.
“We hope this net-zero home, designed and being built to achieve the NGBS (National Green Building Standards) ‘Emerald’ designation, will feel totally different than all other show homes,” said Michael Gardner, principal of studio g ARCHITECTURE and Luxus Design Build, the builder of The New American Remodel 2019. “TNAR blends West Coast design with farm-style living, and integrates a heavy use of organic materials and elements of nature to bring it all together.”
Key to TNAR’s environmental sustainability is the rooftop installation of LG solar modules. A total of 48 LG NeON 2 solar panels, at 330 W each, are powering the home
New Energy Storage Systems
During Design & Construction Week, across town at the Las Vegas Convention Center, the LG booth at the 2019 Kitchen and Bath Industry Show is highlighting LG Electronics’ entry into the U.S. market for residential energy storage solutions, complementing the company’s solar module technologies. The company has introduced two new LG Energy Storage Systems for American homeowners: an AC-coupled 5-kW system for those who already have solar panels of any type on their homes and a DC-coupled 7.6-kW system as part of a new installation of LG solar panels.
