LV5 Solar Inverter

LV5 Central Solar Inverter: Proven 1500 Vdc technology helping to lower LCoE

Leading inverter technology to drive cost -effective solar PV utility-scale infrastructure

GE was the first company to introduce breakthrough 1.5kV central inverter technology into the market.

As the industry continues to strive towards further lowering levelized cost of electricity in Solar PV across the globe, with its LV5 product family, GE is offering a range of central solar inverters and system solutions accommodating your specific project needs.

Having shipped more than 4.2GW of solar inverters, our LV5 builds on proven silicon power electronics technology, demonstrated global manufacturing experience and an extensive global installed base.

Up to 3% lower system cost¹

LV5 enables connecting up to 50% more modules in series vs. 1kV, larger PV arrays and less strings. It helps minimize the amount of equipment needed, thus improves balance of plant i.e. system cost.

Up to 15% lower inverter operating expenses

The reduced amount of inverter stations and MV transformers increases system reliability and allows for lower O&M.
