Re: LG bifacial solar panel interest

I plan to mount them over the davits like I would if they were only 1-sided panels.

Windage is the same as any other panel.

Salt water dousing is the same as any other panel.

The only thing that appears different over other panels is that LG has moved the intercell connection points between cells, moved the junction box and wiring off the back, and removed the back plastic cover and replaced with glass like the top cover. After all, all solar cells can technically produce from either side - it is only when put in a practical panel that they become limited to one side. I think LG just figured out how to expose the back and still be a practical panel.
