One of the largest organizations in Israel is working hard to improve energy usage. Dubbed “Blue Going Green,” the Israeli Defense Force launched a program to reduce the country’s carbon footprint and reliance on fossil fuels by building new solar installations at as many air force bases as possible.
The ambitious program seeks a net-zero-energy air force by the end of 2033, so Israel’s army and air force bases would produce almost all their energy from solar sources and institute a wide range of other environmentally-friendly technologies. The first solar-based air force facility to come online is a major base in southern Israel.
Conti designed and constructed the photovoltaic power plant with a DC power rating of 5 MW. The plant includes a weather station tied into the solar system’s communication infrastructure and is equipped with sensors to measure and monitor irradiance, temperature and wind speed.
The project team’s work on the secure, active air force base required significant security protocols and coordination with the US Army Corps of Engineers and Israeli air force base personnel. Conti’s site security officer worked daily to make sure operations were performed in accordance with the base’s tight security specifications.
Conti's first international solar project, this 5MW system is helping the Israeli army kick-off their long-term renewable energy initiative.
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.
