GE and Gehrlicher Solar AG have begun construction on a 1 MW solar power plant in Aschheim, Germany. The project, planned and built by Gehrlicher Solar, will feature GE's thin-film solar panels and cover two hectares.
According to the companies, this project will be the first of many solar installations that GE and Gehrlicher Solar will complete together. The installation is targeted for completion in August.
GE notes that it has installed more than 25 GW of renewable energy around the world, while Gehrlicher Solar has long-term international experience in the construction and operation of solar power systems of all sizes.
