GE Supplying Minnesota Solar-Wind Hybrid Project (Ind. Report)
GE Renewable Energy, Juhl Energy
Date: 2017-02-27
GE Renewable Energy reports it will supply wind and solar components for the first ever US commercial integrated solar-wind hybrid project. The 4.6 MW project is a community project set for Red Lake Falls in Minnesota, and to be developed by North American developer Juhl Energy. GE Renewable Energy has been contracted to supply two 2.3-116 wind turbines from GE Renewable Energy's Onshore Wind business, as well as 1 MW of solar power conversion equipment.

The 4.6 MW project is set to enter commercial operation later this year.

The Red Lake Falls project will utilize GE's Wind Integrated Solar Energy technology platform to integrate the solar panels through the wind turbine's converter so that both wind and solar share all the same balance of plant to increase annual energy production by up to 10 pct.
