Brownfield PV Power Station
The Creative Energies Solution
Project: 904kW Ballasted Solar array, Grid Tied
Date of completion: March, 2014
Creative Energies, in partnership with Taylor Electric, was selected by Salt Lake City Corp, through an RFP process to design and install a 904 kW ballasted photovoltaic solar system. The goal of this project was to offset the energy usage of Salt Lake Citys new Public Safety Building located at 200 East 500 South, SLC, UT.
The site, a capped landfill, presented a unique set of parameters. In order to keep the landfils engineered surface unaltered, We used a ballasted array. We specified and had custom fabricated 411 cement ballast blocks of 4800 pounds each. We positioned them throughout the 3.5 acre site with a position accuracy tolerance of less than two inches. Creative Energies designed and installed all aspects of the solar system from the point of AC disconnect to the array. 3,014 Renasola 300 watt modules were used.
