Acting as the owner’s engineer for Solargen Energy, POWER Engineers was responsible for providing conceptual design and assembling the interconnect applications to submit to Pacific Gas and Electric (PG&E) and California Independent System Operator (CAISO) for the Panoche Valley Solar Farm project. By working closely with the client, POWER Engineers scheduled and completed all permitting efforts and also completed a preliminary load flow analysis of the existing 230 kV power lines crossing the site. Support for this project also included preliminary design for the interconnecting substation, collector system and switchyard design, site layout and construction phasing drawings, substation EPC bid specifications, and a visualization study.
