Hampshire College Fields I and K

Posted in: Solar–PV

Amherst, Massachusetts: M. L. Schmitt has been awarded a contract to wire the 4.69 mW ground mount solar PV system which is located in a pair of open fields at the Hampshire College campus. The site uses 15,120 modules that are 310 W and 146 string inverters. This project includes four new 1,600 A services, along with necessary medium voltage work to connect these into the campus’s electrical distribution grid.

For storage of the green power that they are producing, they have incorporated a pair of 500 kWh Tesla battery banks. With one of these battery banks located at each field, they are connected into the campus grid for their use when the need arises.
