GE, the global industrial giant, is entering the US residential solar inverter market with technology that has already made its mark in Australia and Brazil.

The General Electric brand is well known in household appliances. Today, the global industrial giant is entering the US residential solar inverter market with technology that has already made its mark in Australia and Brazil.

The UPS debut in the United States took place at a launch event during the November 18 NBA game between the Denver Nuggets and the Philadelphia 76rs. It was a good night for the Sixers, who won, and even better for a group who applauded the product launch at halftime. In attendance were Michael Mendik, US National Director for GoodWe USA Inc. LTD .; GE’s Jeff Wyatt, Varun Murugaraj and Steve Cason; and Mike Kruger, president and CEO of the Colorado Solar and Storage Association. GoodWe is a GE Authorized Partner.

The GE inverter is compatible with high voltage batteries (80-495V) and has a power capacity ranging from 5 to 9.6 kW. As Joseph Spradley, Vice President of Sales at Krannich Solar USA, said: “The new GE hybrid inverter comes with cutting edge features: integrated AC and DC disconnect, four MPPTs and 9.6 kW of backup output. Up to 15 kW of solar panels can be connected.
