- Patriot Solar Group (PSG) in cooperation with Vanguard Energy Partners began initial layout and mounting designs in 2016 to build the Edison Landfill Solar Project, a 7.8 MW array located in New Jersey. The 24,375 solar panels are mounted on a ballasted mount to prevent any penetration of the landfill cap.
- The ground mount array utilized driven ballasted concrete blocks in accordance with local building codes, desired height clearance, and site specific soil conditions.
- Design racking system in compliance with all local building codes.
- Engineer ballast design to work with site conditions and achieve desired height clearance of 30 inches above grade at a 25° panel tilt.
- Customize rail lengths for row endings and breaks in panel rows to avoid obstacles while still utilizing the maximum amount of space efficiently.
- Deliver racking materials on a consistent schedule for continuous delivery to installation crews.
- Install racking system quickly to maintain project schedule.
- Racking design met the desired height clearance in accordance with 90 MPH wind load and 50 PSF snow load.
- Ballasted ground mount allowed for installation on sloping hills and uneven terrain in both NS & EW directions.
- All racking material was delivered on time.
