S&C Electric Co. to connect solar power project to Massachusetts power grid

Sponsored by

S&C Electric Co. won an $11 million project with Green States Energy to design and build a 3.6 MW solar photovoltaic farm in Devens, Mass. This project will be the third plant built by S&C for GSE and will leverage a standardized electrical system design to connect the plant to the grid.

The interconnection substation includes an integrated switching and control solution based on S&C's System VI Switchgear. The complete solution eliminates the need for a separate control house in the substation and associated civil works, and use of standardized designs will also reduce engineering and installation costs for the substation.

S&C recently completed two other projects for GSE, including a 2.5 MW solar farm in Roswell, N.M., and a 4.1 MW solar farm in Sandwich, Mass. For this new project, S&C is providing engineering, procurement and project management services for both the AC and DC portions of the project. S&C and GSE are again teaming up with Green Earth Developers, who worked on the Roswell and Sandwich solar farm projects.

S&C's standard System VI Switchgear has already been approved by Massachusetts transmission system operators, which will further streamline the project and help ensure a predictable schedule.
