Project Overview

The power generated by the system is injected into the grid via an existing transmission line over the site to make more green energy available to the public.

Owner controlled metering and disconnects were installed prior to the interconnection point, giving BayWa total control of their array for any needed maintenance or updates in the future. The project has also provided the means for and coordination with the utility to install similar equipment at the interconnection point for their use. Preservation of the natural ecosystem took center stage during project development. The site on Grand Island is 41.4 acres, spanning a creek bed and wetland area. Montante Solar worked in partnership with the Army Corps of Engineers to ensure all aspects of the project were in compliance with Feder Wetland Regulations. Montante Solar spearheaded the design of a precast concrete bridge to span the creek bed, minimally affecting wildlife access and waterflow. Conservationists were employed to find ways to mitigate the impact on pollinators that called this area home. Montante Solar relocated and added native foliage at the periphery of the array to continue to attract pollinators.

Record-Setting Solar

Perserving the Ecosystem

Native foliage relocated and added to continually attract pollinators to the area.

Montante Solar Services

As the EPC (Engineer, Procurement, Contractor) for BayWa, Montante Solar designed the layout of the array and completed analysis of its potential production in-house using licensed software. This was followed by electrical engineering and the eventual for-construction drawings. In addition to these technical contributions, Montante Solar piloted this project through the State and Federal incentive application process.
