GE enters Australian solar segment

GE is expanding its renewable energy activity, through a new inverter for the residential and commercial rooftop solar segment. It is building on its close to 2 GW of experience in Australia’s wind industry.

To facilitate the move, GE is partnering with fast-growing Chinese inverter supplier GoodWe – which for the past two years has become a leading supplier to Australia’s solar households. GE selected GoodWe from a field of over 300 inverter manufacturers on the basis of its robust quality assurance programs and technical innovation.
