Solar is under new rule

Imagine the nation’s grid. Visualize more solar projects plugging in every day. Those projects are feeding more and more power to the grid, which is great, but with that comes new challenges. Solar panels feed power into inverters, which push current onto the grid. This causes the voltage to rise above what is dictated as […]

The many facets of energy storage

For the renewable-energy industry, energy storage has typically served as a means to an end: maximize the energy used by the transmission grid to boost a project’s production value and bottom line. A good storage system can help do that by regulating the use of variable resources, such as wind or solar power, ensuring such […]

Does your PV Plant SCADA deliver utility-scale management?

Five quick questions to see if your system is up to the challenge. Many systems claim to be “SCADA.” To laymen, these systems might all look the same. However, utility-scale PV resources require much more capability and automatic controls than simple data acquisition systems (DAS) that monitor a few points. To participate in the utility-scale […]

Midway II Solar Project Hand Off: “Smoothest in a Very Long Time”

Folsom, CA – Building and successfully commissioning a utility-scale photovoltaic (PV) resource the size of Midway II requires that thousands of elements reach completion at the same time. Construction must be rock solid. Coordination must be precise. Communication crystal clear. Team members must perform at a high level. So when John Quinonez, a veteran PV […]

Three ways technology can help manage utility solar project performance

In utility-scale PV power generation, many elements must be synchronized to ensure high system performance. Resource owners use monitoring instruments, information systems and operational control systems as tools to meet compliance requirements, operate effectively and manage long-term plant performance. Technology plays a role in three areas of plant performance: Regulatory compliance, operations and asset management… […]
