GE Power Conversion says solar power developer BELECTRIC will be installing more than 100 of GE's 1,500 VDC ProSolar central inverters in various projects this year.

BELECTRIC and PADCON GmbH first began using the 1,500 VDC system technology at three solar power plants in southern Germany last year. These installations collectively deliver about 15 MW of power.

"Our solar plants in south Germany run highly efficiently with the GE ProSolar central inverter," says Bernard Beck, CEO of BELECTRIC. "We are now in a position to take this combined solution to BELECTRIC's customers to make their power supply more intelligent, more economical, more reliable and more environmentally friendly."
