Advanced solar panels from LG were part of The New American Remodel (TNAR), the official show home of the 2019 International Builders’ Show in Las Vegas in February.
The National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) named LG Electronics USA official partner for the “net zero” TNAR home in the Nevada desert.
The New American Remodel exemplifies how even the most basic house can be transformed into a high-performance home when integrating today’s building practices that enhance energy efficiency, indoor-air quality, safety and universal design.
Michael Gardner, principal of studio g Architecture and Luxus Design Build, builder of The New American Remodel 2019, said: “We hope this ‘net zero’ home, designed and being built to achieve the National Green Building Standards ‘Emerald’ designation, will feel totally different than all other show homes.”
Supported by LG solar panels and efficient appliances, “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 high-efficiency LG solar modules. All told, four dozen 60-cell LG NeON 2 solar panels are powering the home.
These 330-watt panels feature LG’s Cello technology that is claimed to reduce electrical loss, while boosting power output and reliability.
