Conti performed engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) services for two adjacent arrays consisting of 1.3 MW DC and interconnecting at 13.8 kV. Conti worked with Greenwood Energy to manage different aspects of the project including construction, grid interconnection, utility coordination and state, county and township approval.
Construction activities consisted of clearing and grubbing four acres on the East array. Both West and East arrays required site grading and boulder reallocation. Dewatering was installed to redirect water from the site and allow for construction of underground trenching within the East array.
Conti installed over 3,800 photovoltaic (PV) modules on RBI Solar’s post-driven racking system and two Solectria 500 kW central inverters. Conti worked closely with Greenwood Energy and the local officials to construct the array in accordance with inspector’s needs while also meeting the difficult schedule demands of the project.
Once construction was complete, Conti tied the PV system into the existing National Grid distribution system. Greenwood Energy will own and operate the array for 20 to 25 years and will sell power to the towns of Norton and Stoughton through a net metering purchase agreement.
Conti constructed the array in accordance with unique local requirements while meeting the difficult schedule demands of the project.
The Gold Meadow Farms Solar Project, developed by Southern Sky Renewable Energy and currently being constructed by Conti Solar, is the largest solar farm in Rhode Island. The 21MW project is providing clean energy and jobs to hundreds of people across the state.
Conti Solar was contracted by Falck Renewables to design, procure and install a 6.0 MW ground mount solar array in the 100-year-old Richardson Dairy Farm.
IGS Solar, a commercial and residential solar provider and an affiliate company of IGS Energy, one of the largest independent retail energy suppliers in the country, contracted Conti Solar to provide EPC services for Ohio’s largest landfill project. This project is also Ohio’s solar power generation plant.
