GE's LV5+ Solar Power Station
GE has accumulated more than 5 gigawatts of total global installed base for its solar inverter technology, and was the first to introduce 1,500-volt to the solar market. Today, building on this proven technology, GE’s new LV5+ Solar Power Station brings GE’s Power Conversion technology leadership together with its system integration capabilities to deliver a complete solar power station solution. This new solar power station provides a smart solution that can help to reduce CAPEX, OPEX and ensure more reliable plant performance.
GE‘s LV5+ Solar Power Station combines GE Power Conversion‘s LV5+ 1500 V solar inverter, with medium voltage power transformer, optional MV Ring Main Unit (RMU), auxiliary transformer and various options within a single, standard 20ft ISO high cube container. This containerized solar power station delivers a reliable, plug & play, factory integrated power conversion solution for utility-scale solar installations.
Focusing only on the cost of individual pieces of equipment will not help to drive down the LCOE for solar alone. The ‘total installed cost’ including logistics, installation and commissioning must be considered when looking to optimize CAPEX for utility-scale solar power plants.
With GE’s system approach, our integrated power station helps solar developers and EPC’s to reduce their ‘total installed cost’, start-up risks and to improve the overall reliability of the solar power station assets.
