S&C Electric Co. has been awarded a $7.9 million contract by Green States Energy to construct a 2.5 MW solar photovoltaic farm near Roswell, N.M. S&C will provide procurement and construction services for the entire project.

To qualify for the utility's renewable energy incentive program, the project needs to be energized by this July. S&C was able to bring together a team that could engineer, procure and construct the solar farm in this time frame, the company says.

S&C is working to quickly procure equipment needed for the project and is drawing on its experience in renewable energy projects to construct the plant. Shoals Technologies Group will supply racking and DC balance-of-systems components, which include pre-fabricated wire harnesses and combiner boxes.

For this project, S&C also developed a solution that divides the system into 100 kW sections tied to the owner's meters. This design allows Green States Energy to better utilize the strong solar potential around Roswell and participate in the local utility's solar incentive program.
