Amber Enterprises has completed the first phase of a 1.5 MW solar project for the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) in Beltsville, Md.
The installation involves SolarWorld 315 W panels mounted on a Rack10 Solar Land Shark 1 single-post ground-mounting system. Inverters are provided by Nextronex Energy Systems. Princeton Engineering and Solar is providing engineering services.
‘The custom-designed helical piles were critical to the long-term stability of the PV racking due to the site's sandy soils,’ says Jason Snyder, vice president of Rack10 Solar.
