GE Renewable Energy announced that it will partner with Helios Energy to develop a new hybrid solar + storage system in upstate New York, which is expected to reach commercial operation in the second quarter of 2020.
According to CleanTechnica, GE Renewable Energy specifically will integrate two solar PV arrays built by Helios Energy with two battery energy storage systems comprised of GE’s Reservoir technology, Reservoir Inverter units, control systems, and combiner boxes. The two energy storage systems are expected to store and generate 3 MW/12 MWh and 2 MW/8MWh respectively.
The hybrid system will use a direct DC coupled configuration with a single inverter and single point of interconnection shared between the solar arrays and storage systems, a design GE hops will improve the overall energy output of the hybrid system while optimizing equipment and installation costs and increasing the overall reliability of the system.
