Schenectady, N.Y., January 18, 2012 — GE agreed to supply 23 MW of advanced solar equipment to Invenergy. Invenergy will install the solar equipment at its Grand Ridge Solar project, now under construction in Illinois.

The Grand Ridge Solar site is located in La Salle County, Ill., adjacent to the company's Grand Ridge Wind project. Invenergy owns and operates Grand Ridge Wind, where 140 of GE's 1.5 MW series wind turbines are providing 210 MW of power.

In addition to supplying thin film solar panels to Grand Ridge Solar, GE also will supply packaged inverter skids that include Brilliance inverters, transformers and re-combiners, as well as GE SunIQ plant controls.
