Derick Botha, the vice president of business development at GameChange Solar, says: “This system presented challenges such as deep irrigation ditches which needed to be navigated. The flexibility of the GameChange Max-Span Plus system to utilize non standard large profile foundations enabled these ditches to be spanned without any issue. We are excited to be part of this meaningful project and look forward to a rapid installation process. Our logistics team will support the project by scheduling deliveries to multiple drop ship points to help the customer with tight staging space requirements.”
The company’s Max-Span system requires as few supports as 190 per MW, and can navigate up to 15 degree terrain slopes. The system also withstands 150 mph wind and 90 psf snow loads.
The Mid-Atlantic is particularly well-suited for solar development, according to a study by Clean Power Research for the Mid‐Atlantic Solar Energy Industries Association (MSEIA). The researchers found that the total value of solar ranges from $256 per MWh to $318 per MWh, after considering both economic and social benefits of the development. Of the total value, the highest value components are the Market Price Reduction (averaging $55 per MWh) and the Economic Development Value (averaging $44 per MWh), Clean Power found.
