One of six ClearPath solar tasks Castillo Engineering offered website optimization and worth engineering for in upstate New York.
ClearPath Energy has contracted with Castillo Engineering to offer electrical design and engineering for a 38.25 MW portfolio of six group solar tasks in upstate New York.
Ranging from 4.5 MW to 7.5 MW in dimension, the tasks are presently in late phases of development in central New York, a few of which have already achieved mechanical completion. Castillo Engineering’s website optimization experience resulted in over $200,000 in financial savings, on common, for every of those tasks, that are scheduled to be operational in Q2 of 2022.
“We selected Castillo Engineering due to their team’s hundreds of megawatts of experience in the New York and Massachusetts markets,” says Greg Hering, co-founder and director of growth at ClearPath Energy. “They were highly engaged, beginning with the iterative design process through to project as-builts. Their experience was helpful when working with equipment vendors, contractors, and lender’s independent engineers.”
This portfolio of tasks in New York joins Castillo Engineering’s array of utility-scale solar tasks accomplished within the Northeast so far. Half of those six current tasks use solar trackers, and the opposite half use fixed-tilt racking; all use bifacial modules.
“With over 300 utility-scale projects under our belt and over 20 senior level engineers, we are pleased to have the experience and capacity to support the nation’s leading solar EPCs and developers in order to accelerate the global transition to clean energy,” states Christopher Castillo, CEO of Castillo Engineering. “We are glad to have been able to support ClearPath on this portfolio of New York projects, as its team of development experts were extremely knowledgeable and easy to work with.”
This portfolio of tasks will assist New York in reaching its renewable energy targets, together with a goal to have 70% of the state’s energy produced from renewable sources by 2030. Three of the tasks on this portfolio alone will enhance one New York county’s solar capability by practically 50%. In complete, the six tasks on this portfolio will generate sufficient clear energy to power 8,700 properties per 12 months.
