GE has been selected by Toyo Engineering Corporation on behalf of the project owner, GK KS Power 1, a special purpose vehicle consortium by GE Energy Financial Service and K-Energy, to provide its 1500 V inverters to build the 24 MW solar plant project located in Katsuura City, Chiba Prefecture, Japan. Solar is soaring in Japan. Boosted by the government’s energy ambition to reach a solar installation of 64 GW by 2030, solar plants have proliferated on the island. This year, 7 GW of new solar installation is planned to be added to the actual 42 GW of total installed base, which makes the country well ahead of its target. For this project, GE will be delivering 25 of its 1 MW LV5 1500 V inverters and 13 medium-voltage transformers with a ring main unit (RMU), all of which will be preassembled onto skids for ease of transportation and installation on-site. First introduced by GE in 2012, the LV5 1500 V solar inverters have achieved a global installed base of more than 5 GW.
