It was later donated to the Smithsonian for research and conservation efforts for wildlife and ecosystems. Constellation contracted Conti to clear the site and engineer, construct, and commission a 600kW solar facility at the institute.
Conti worked on a site surrounded by endangered, highly endangered and extinct in the wild animals. With many animals mating and birthing seasons occurring in the spring and summer, Conti pushed to build and interconnect the project during the Winter months to minimize the impact on the neighboring animals. The team kept the project on schedule and budget despite these obstacles by closely managing vendor and subcontractor schedules, and completing the interconnection work first, instead of last, due to the mating season.
Conti self-performed the civil work, posts, racking and panel installation while managing three subcontractors throughout the project, including electrical engineers, electrical subcontractor and fencing installer.
Constellation will own and operate the array for 23 years, allowing the Smithsonian to operate their 3,100-acre facility on a lower carbon footprint and conserve their funds to allow more research and reproduction of our world’s endangered animals.

Dix Solar LLC (True Green Capital) contracted with the Federal Government to lease the property for the construction of a solar array at their closed landfill at Joint Base MDL. Dix Solar contracted Conti to engineer, construct, and commission the 16.5MW ballast mounted solar installation.
ADESA, a recognized as a leader in vehicle auctions in North America, sought to save money on their electricity costs and reduce their reliance on the grid by installing a 4.23MW solar carport project at their Massachusetts facility.
