PLAINVILLE, Conn. — May 1, 2012 — GE Energy's (NYSE: GE) Industrial Solutions business kicks off the Electric Odyssey Tour today with an employee event at its Plainville, Conn., headquarters. GE Energy's Electric Odyssey Tour is a six-month road show in the United States and Canada that highlights innovative product and service offerings from the Industrial Solutions business.

Attendees can experience the advanced Industrial Solutions technologies that touch all parts of the electrical infrastructure — including low- and medium-voltage switchgear, circuit breakers, transformers, arc flash mitigation products and lifecycle service solutions.

The tour will bring the latest industrial products, services and aftermarket solutions to GE's customers at more than 200 sites in some 80 cities across North America. From Plainville, the Electric Odyssey tour will head to North Carolina. In June, the tour will visit customers in Canada before returning to the U.S.

"The Electric Odyssey Tour is a great way for us to bring our products and services directly to our customers' facilities, where they can see, touch and experience them firsthand," said Luis Ramírez, CEO, GE Energy's Industrial Solutions business. "Every product and service showcased in the tour is backed by the strong reputation of the GE brand.

RBI Solar - Dahlia Has You Covered

What if you could maximize the Ground Coverage Ratio (GCR) on your next project and not have to worry about the complicated variables that come with a tracker system? With a low tilt and clearance design, Dahlia® has the highest GCR of any fixed-tilt system in the marketplace. The system is available in three tilt options (7.5, 10 and 12.5 degrees) and designed to accommodate any sized PV module. The lightweight system is engineered with fewer components, several of which are shipped to job sites pre-assembled. This design feature reduces freight costs and rapidly trims the amount of on-site installation time required to complete construction. Maximizing PV coverage on a site can lead to an increase of production, which creates greater financial return for project owners. Over 100 MW of Dahlia® projects have been deployed across the United States, in regions of variable snow and wind loads. How much can Dahlia® cover and save you on your next project?
