Project Description:

Sargent & Lundy supported a major Midwest United States utility company with their business planning and screening for a 20-MW solar PV project. We evaluated potential land options for the installation of the solar PV plant with several configurations, including fixed-tilt versus single-axis tracking and poly-Si versus thin-film technology. Sargent & Lundy also performed conceptual designs of the 20-MW solar PV plant for each of the configurations.

Project Scope:

  • Solar resource and projected energy production evaluation with PVsyst software
  • Site suitability review
  • Evaluation of solar technology
  • Conceptual plant design
  • Detailed cost schedule
  • Equipment specification review
