Experience Is Our Power

Our project experience ranges from commercial, industrial, healthcare, higher education, and government facilities to utility-grade solar farms in any mix of rooftop, ground mount, single tracker, or canopy-based installations.

Crescent Dunes

Solar Thermal Power Plant

Tonopah, Nevada

Mechanical Subcontractor:
Brahma Group

Owner: Solar Reserve

Size: 110MV

Completion Date: 02/2015

Scope of Work:

The Crescent Dunes Solar Thermal Power Plant is located in Tonopah, Nevada. It’s the first utility-scale facility in the world to feature advanced capabilities in molten salt power tower energy storage that efficiently and cost-effectively stores solar energy.

This new technology is game-changing and enables the Crescent Dunes plant to provide a stable and predictable electricity supply without the harmful emissions or hazardous waste often associated with nuclear power facilities and conventional fossil-fuel burning.

Per MV of capacity, the project will generate more than twice the annual output of other technologies and will produce over 600,000 megawatt-hours per year, powering over 75,000 homes.

Brahma Group performed the mechanical erection of equipment and piping of the power block (Molten Salts Storage, Steam Generation & BOP Systems) for the power plant, as well as the mechanical erection of piping (WSH & WSC Systems) inside the massive 548′ receiving tower.

Lancaster Little Rock C

Utility scale project

Palmdale, California

General Contractor: Hunt Electric

Owner: sPower (Sustainable Power Group)

Size: 7MW DC Solar PV System

Completion Date: 12/2014

Scope of Work:

sPower contracted with Brahma Hunt to design and build a ground-mount, fixed-utility, 5MW AC solar PV system on a 43-acre site in Palmdale, California. The scope of work included all civil work as well as the installation of 82,260 modules, 10 inverters, wiring, cables, conduit, switch gear, communications and system integration to the utility grid. Additionally, Brahma Hunt managed all the subcontractors and procured all major materials such as switchgear, inverters, transformers, combiner boxes, switchboards and SCADA building and wire.

This new solar PV array is expected to contribute more than 13,400 megawatt-hours of energy to the local power distribution system. When completed, the Little Rock Solar Facility is expected to generate enough clean, sustainable power to displace nearly 10,000 metric tons of carbon dioxide each year, which is the equivalent of greenhouse gas emissions from 22,732,428 miles per year driven by an average passenger vehicle or 3,422 tons of waste sent to the landfill. The project will provide the same amount of annual carbon sequestration as produced by 7,826 acres of US forests.

System Details:

The installed system consists of 82,305 thin film FS-385 photovoltaic modules, rated at 85W each and manufactured by First Solar. The modules were mounted at a fixed tilt of 25° and face due south. The DC power generated is then inverted to AC power using ten Advanced Energy 500NX-1kV inverters, divided among four locations throughout the project site. The AC power at each location is then stepped up to 12,470V and connected to the local distribution system.

Mark Miller Subaru

Commercial Project

Salt Lake City, Utah

Owner: Mark Miller Subaru

Size: 218kW DC Solar PV System

Completion Date: 05/2015

Scope of Work:

Mark Miller Subaru invested over $500,000 in solar PV array at its Midtown dealership in Salt Lake City, Utah. Hunt Electric’s Renewable Energy division was hired for the design, installation and commissioning of a 218kW, 684-panel solar array.

Three types of racking systems were installed—ULA, Cooper Bline and SnapNrack. Schneider inverters were also installed. Car dealerships are often considered polluters, but installing solar arrays at their facilities helps to change that perception. Mark Miller Subaru is the only eco-friendly Subaru retailer in Utah, and the array installation proves their commitment to renewable energy and the environment.

Burton Lumber

Commercial Solar Project

Salt Lake City, Utah

Owner: Burton Lumber

Size: 642kW Solar PV System

Completion Date: 10/2013

Scope of Work:

The scope of work included 2,676 Aleo 240 watt modules connected to 48 Power One, three-phase inverters mounted on the roof. There are 223 strings of 12 modules with 4 or 5 strings connected to each inverter. Also included are two 400 A and four 200 A AC panels connected to an 800 A disconnect switch and one 100 AC panel connected to a 60 A disconnect switch. In addition, a weather station to monitor ambient temperature, cell temperature and irradiance was incorporated into the project.
