FEATURED PROJECT EXPERIENCE
2W Permian Solar
Lead solar engineer and designer of electrical and physical design on 420MWac/520MWdc project located in Texas to IFC. PV Collection design includes ~40MW/40MWh AC Coupled Battery Energy Storage System. Project was sited within an active oil field with very little extra land requiring multiple iterations and optimization with many parties.
Desert Harvest Solar
Lead engineer and designer of electrical and physical design on 150MWac/210MWdc project located in California to IFC. Project includes ~40MW/160MWh DC Coupled Battery Energy Storage System. Project included difficult soil conditions and coordination with multidisciplinary approach.
Nazareth Solar – 200Mwac/280MWdc solar project
Scopes included bringing the project to 30% including block optimization with the goal to expedite construction and reduce construction in flooded areas. Including both underground and overhead collection design.
