Conti was responsible for all design, engineering, procurement and installation of the 4.23MW DC photovoltaic (PV) carport solar array. This particular carport is unique because it utilizes a long-span structure which allowed us to most efficiently utilize the parking lot area. Conti’s scope of work included design and installation of the foundations, steel canopy structures, lighting, interconnection, AC and DC feeders, DC disconnects, string inverters, and panelboards.
Construction of the array was accomplished in multiple phases while keeping the parking lots active for ADESA’s operation and daily intake of vehicles. There are five canopies in total. Each canopy is approximately 100’ wide and 500’ in length. These canopies hold over 11,000 modules.
This carport array, which provides approximately 88 percent of the power at the facility, is the largest solar carport project in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.
Eversource, the largest utility in NH, MA and CT, was approved by their state regulators to develop, construct and operate 44MW of solar facilities across all of MA to directly save their rate payers money.
The American medical technology company, Becton Dickinson, wanted to implement sustainable measures to their syringe manufacturing facility in Canaan, CT.
