GE EV Solar Carport Project debuts in Connecticut 26 May 2011 The GE EV Solar Carport Project made its debut in Plainville, Connecticut. With greater than a 25-year lifespan, the EV Solar Carport will annually deliver 125 MWh via 100 kW DC power. GE EV Solar Carport in Plainville, CT. Click to enlarge. GE Energy Industrial Solutions combined forces with Inovateus Solar LLC, a national solar power distributor and integrator, to install the carport. The companies use solar energy and smart grid technology to fully charge up to 13 electric vehicles per day via six Level 2 GE EV Charging Stations and to power the overhead lighting in the parking lot. Our objective with this project is to utilize a mix of installation formats to create a practical on-site lab to illustrate a range of design options when creating a solar system. We are excited to collaborate with GE on this impo...
