The client is the second largest power consumer in San Luis Obisbo County so maximizing array size and power production was a key design consideration as the financial benefit was obvious. During installation, the site was beginning crush, so electrical activities could not impact equipment operation as grapes were being brought in from harvest.
The array size was maximized while facilitating a very organized and straightforward design so as to make the installation very efficient and cost effective. Interconnection activities were coordinated tightly to minimize the shutdown and work required.
The system was built and interconnected within the 3 month schedule put forth by the site owner, investor and project team.
