Conti installed the 6 MW array on a site containing and asbestos landfill and rocky terrain. This required different skill sets to ensure the array could be installed per design criteria without impacting the integrity of the landfill cap.
Conti utilized a combination ballasted and post-driven racking system developed by RBI Solar for this project. The array was constructed using JA Solar 345 and 350 watt modules and Sungrow string inverters. The location of the array contained high ledge rock, which presented challenges for the installation of foundations and underground wiring.
Conti managed 10 subcontractors in the implementation of this project, which included heavy clearing, earthwork import and site grading, solar array construction, fencing and medium voltage installation, all while meeting the owner’s schedule and budget.
Conti implemented a design for the post driven racking system to reduce the cost of the project for the owner. Instead of screw type posts, Conti executed a rock drilling operation allowing for installation of traditional driven posts, saving both time and money for the project.
Utilizing a rock drilling technic not commonly found in the solar industry, Conti executed this project on time and on budget.
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.
