Utility Scale Solar PV Design

ElectroNet have built a high performing team with end-end utility scale PV plant design skills. Our designs focus on plants from 5 MW through to 400 MW+. We have worked successfully with developers throughout Australia and New Zealand. Let us maximise your yield and project bankability.

Our solar PV design services include:

  • Site selection
  • Conceptual layout and capacity assessment
  • Mounting system selection. Fixed, E/W or single axis tracking
  • Module and inverter selection
  • Detailed layout optimisation considering topography and geotechnical constraints
  • Economic analysis
  • Bill of materials generation
  • Yield calculation using PVsystTM
  • “Bankable” documentation

Our engineers are familiar with the latest techniques and technologies and can give advice on all project aspects including:

  • Trade-offs of fixed vs tracking systems
  • Bifacial modules
  • String vs central inverters
  • Grid compliance
