GE begins work on 2-MW solar project in New York

By Editor


The renewable energy unit of General Electric, or GE, has started developing a 2-MW solar project for a corrugated box maker in New York state.

GE has claimed that it is a first-of-its-kind project for the company considering that it will not only build the project but also supply the equipment it requires.

The installation is to come up outside President Container Group’s factory in Middletown, Orange County. It is expected to provide 25 percent of the company’s future energy needs once it becomes operational later this year, according to a statement issued by the company.

According to Erik Schiemann, the general manager of the company’s solar product line, GE will deliver equipment, perform site engineering, installation and commissioning services and seven years of operations and maintenance. It also supported the customer through the incentive application and permitting process.

A report states that the installation has been approved for support under the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority’s (NYSERDA) NY-Sun incentive programme.
