A 5MW AC ground-mounted photovoltaic solar farm providing energy back to the grid in Duplin County.

Project Location: Kenansville, NC

Project Role: Engineering & Design

Project Highlights

  • Over 19,000 solar photovoltaic modules.
  • Mid-project shift from 4.5MW to 5MW size created a site with both central inverters for the initial 4.5MW and string inverters for the 500kW addition.
  • Portrait-oriented, fix-tilt, ground-mounted racking system.
  • Three 1,500kW central inverters and eighteen 30kW string inverters supply 5,000kW of power back to the electrical grid.
  • Grounding ring design for central inverter and transformer pad grounding.
