Case Study

Solar PV power permitting project

Field of solar panels

Advisian provided the engineering support for the permitting of a 485 MW PV facility for the California Energy Commission and Bureau of Land Management.

Approach

Advisian worked extensively with numerous permitting team entities to develop the conceptual design and corresponding project description which included general arrangement drawings, electrical single-line drawings, grading and drainage drawings, arc flash study, transient stability analysis, 3D visualization models, construction schedules, water usage estimates, disturbed acreage calculations, and fire safety.

Results

The PV facility was successfully permitted through all applicable agencies and completed construction of the first two units in 2016.  As evidence of Advisian’s performance throughout the permitting process, we were subsequently awarded the detailed engineering design contract.
