Middle-size commercial solar power plants

Middle-size commercial solar power plants are stations with a capacity of 50 kW to 1 MW. The area of ​​such solar installations depends on the number of solar modules and ranges from approximately 300 m2 to 1 ha. The comparatively small size of the power plant makes it possible to achieve the optimum solar panels location according to cardinal points. When choosing the size of a solar station, it is important to consider how much electricity the future facility must generate to meet the project’s objectives. Avenston offers any services to design and build solar power plants of such size or type.

On-grid solar PV power-stations mounted on land

Ground-based on-grid solar PV power-stations are widely used to build a reasonably productive photovoltaic system and generate revenue from the sale of electricity.

The most often used location option for commercial solar power-stations is a land surface installation of all elements of a photovoltaic station (solar batteries, mounting systems, inverters, transformers, and other equipment parts).

Advantages of ground placing of a solar power-station:

  • Possibility to get a solar power-station of any required power capacity, which is important at the building of backup power-stations when generated power must fully compensate for disappeared electricity from the industrial network.
  • Involving of land lots, that are useless (or not very useful) for agricultural activity.
  • Possibility to locate solar panels in such a way, that provides them the optimal spatial orientation.

From one side, such method of equipment placing makes a solar power-station project to be a bit longer on the whole, because it is necessary to elaborate all formal questions related to a land lot. On the other hand, the undoubted advantage of surface solar power-stations is the possibility to install greater (as compared to roof options) amount of solar batteries, in other words, the possibility to construct more powerful solar power-stations.

Payback of middle-size commercial solar power plants

The payback periods depend on the efficiency of the equipment selected, the level of insolation in the region and the location of the panels. The approximate repayment period for investments in the medium-sized PV power-stations is 3.5-4 years.

AVENSTON offers assistance to businesses and investors in the design, construction works, and maintenance of ground-based solar power plants. We have extensive experience in the realization all stages, from the audit of a future project to the commissioning of a completed solar power plant.
