GE Supplies Solar Energy Modules and Water Filters

GE is supplying its ecomagination-certified solar energy modules and water filtration technology to a new initiative, launched by Dynoil LLC, to increase the availability of clean drinking water in rural areas of India and other developing countries in Southeast Asia and Africa.

The use of solar energy technology to power water filtration systems will enable Dynoil, a privately held petroleum and biofuels developer based in Newport Beach, California, to install equipment in remote areas that lack direct access to transmission grids. As part of the $93 million agreement, GE is providing Dynoil with 200-Watt solar modules and 5,000 water filtration units. “We are very pleased and excited to have the opportunity to demonstrate how GE’s ecomagination products can enable projects, like Dynoil’s alternative energy/clean water initiative,” said Vic Abate, vice president of renewables for GE Energy. To ensure the longevity of the project, Dynoil is forming an installation and training organization to help empower host communities. The teams will offer training on how to install, operate and maintain the systems. GE’s solar modules are being built at GE Energy’s solar energy facility in Newark, Delaware, while GE’s Homespring water filtration system units are manufactured at GE Water & Process Technologies’ facilities in Canada and Hungary.
