GE supplying inverters to German solar energy project

General Electric (GE) will supply more than 100 of its 1,500-VDC ProSolar central inverters to Belectric by the end of 2013 in Germany. GE says the inverter helps to decrease system losses and balance of system costs as well as reduce operation and maintenance costs.

The newest technology is based on GE’s 1,000-VDC ProSolar inverter. Inverters help to convert DC power produced by solar panels to AC power.

Since July 2012, Belectric has installed the inverters at three of its solar power plants in southern Germany that deliver about 15 MWp of power.
