SolarCity Partners with Trimark to Deploy End-to-End Technology Solution for 3.72 MW Topco Solar Site
Folsom/ Chatsworth/ Sunnyvale Calif. & Norfolk, VA – One of the largest solar energy companies in the U.S., SolarCity, has selected Trimark Associates, Inc. (Trimark) to design and engineer a browser-based monitoring and control system, and deliver California Independent System Operator (CAISO) metering and secure data telemetry for a 3.72 MW photovoltaic (PV) generation site in Lancaster, CA.
Trimark will deliver CAISO-certified metering, a CAISO-certified Remote Intelligence Gateway (RIG), and Trimark’s power generation control, monitoring and historian system, T1-S Gateway SCADA™. T1-S Gateway SCADA enables end-to-end management from the operations center to field devices. This will allow SolarCity to capture, store and forward data in real-time from inverters, meters and MET stations. Trimark will also provide meteorological instruments and network drops. This end-to-end solution ensures that the Topco Solar project will have a complete, integrated CAISO-compliant system, as well as full-featured controls.
Trimark will guide SolarCity through CAISO’s NRI process to help them meet requirements during development and interconnection.
Trimark’s expertise in delivering comprehensive PV power management solutions is visible in numerous, similar facilities across the United States including utility-scale solar sites Topaz (550 MW), Desert Sunlight (550 MW), and Solar Inverter Control’s for the 20MW Cascade.
