EETN installed 30.5 MW of utility scale solar PV projects in 2017 working as the electrical, mechanical and civil subcontractor. EETN has installed 21.8 MW of solar PV as EPC contractor throughout the United States, US Territories and the Cayman Islands. EETN Below is a list of several of our key projects that highlight our experience and capability.
7.0MW - Ground Mount - Halifax, NC
EETN is the mechanical and electrical Subcontractor for this project. EETN purchased a PD10 pile driver for this project and has since provided 30.5 MW of pile driven solar install since the PD10 purchase in December 2016
94 kW - Parking Canopy - Pago Pago, American Samoa
EETN was the EPC contractor for this project. In a micro-grid like Tutuila Island, with significant solar installed, when a cloud blocks the sun the solar PV system experiences a significant power transient. The grid operators and equipment may struggle to keep up with the rapid change resulting in power outages. EETN designed a system utilizing Princeton Power's DRI-100 inverter to draw power from a battery and smooth out harsh cloud related transients.
2.5 MW - ground/parking canopy/roof top - Tuscaloosa VA Med Center
EETN was the EPC contractor for this project. The Department of Veterans Affairs desired a solar PV system that maximized the use of their available space. EETN designed a system that did precisely that. The resulting solar arrays have drastically reduced the hospital's energy costs, saving the VA over $300,000 in energy costs per year.
1.3 MW - Parking canopy - West Texas VA Health Center - Big Spring, TX
EETN was the EPC contractor for this project. The customer desired a curved parking canopy to meet aesthetic desires. EETN, in conjunction with RBI Solar, installed a curved solar PV array on a flexible aluminum rail. The innovative design is aesthetically unique and structurally robust ensuring the beauty of the solar array will withstand the constant West Texas wind during its 25 year life.
2.5 MW - Ballasted ground mount - Olin E. Teague VA Med Center - Temple, TX
EETN was the EPC contractor for this project. The array is installed over a medical waste land fill. A normal ground mount is installed with driven piles. In this case the landfill cap could not be penetrated, requiring a ballasted system. As land settles over time, additional rock can be added to keep the array stable. The reliable solar PV array saves the VA $300,000 per year in energy costs.
