SOL Components fixed-tilt mounting used on 213-MW project at former nuclear plant

Ground-mount and carport racking developer SOL Components provided its Ground Fixed Tilt (GFT) mounting system to a 213-MWDC solar project in Sacramento County, California. The solar project sits on the site of the Rancho Seco nuclear power plant that ceased operation in 1989.

SOL Components was selected to support the project because of its expertise with utility-scale solar projects, and the benefits and advantages of its end-to-end PV structural systems. SOL Components’ light gauge roll-formed steel piles and racking components reduce overall steel weight while providing optimum structural integrity, which greatly reduced the developer’s racking costs. The site was developed on steep, undulating terrain necessitating a system with the flexibility to adapt to varying site constraints. SOL Components was able to deliver a racking system that not only easily adapted to variable slope, but also provided flexibility in dealing with unforeseen site challenges.

“SOL Components continues to grow rapidly and take market share in the utility-scale PV racking space, and this 213-MW project is a perfect example where our cost-optimized GFT solution and superior support services enable success for our customers,” said Mike Fraenkel, SOL Components President and General Manager. “Not every racking provider can meet the challenging terrain, tightly coordinated material delivery, and site support requirements this project required – it’s what we do best.”

It was previously announced that Ingeteam inverters were used on the project, which was built by Rosendin Electric and DE Shaw Renewable Investments. The 160-MWAC Rancho Seco II project came online at the end of 2020.
