In a “Wind Integrated Solar Energy” (WiSE) solution, owners combine wind and solar at the wind turbine level instead of running a wind and solar plant independently. Integrating at the wind turbine level leverages the existing wind converter as a hybrid converter to source AC and DC power together, eliminating the need for a separate solar inverter.

The GE WiSE solution comes with a Hybrid Control & SCADA architecture which manages and controls both the wind and solar energy. Source segregation with separate metering enables individual Power Purchase Agreements.


Benefits of WiSE

  • Lower CAPEX/MWh and OPEX/MWh
  • Higher and more stable AEP.
  • Improved LCOE on hybrid farms
  • Comprehensive service from GE for both wind and solar systems
