Solar (PV) farms are a key developing technology that has become widespread in parts of the United States, and in particular nearby to us in North Carolina. Booth has been part of this, alongside many solar developers providing support for their technical needs, not only in North Carolina but across the U.S. Our team consists of degreed engineers across multiple disciplines including electrical, mechanical, civil, structural, and environmental engineering along with professional land surveyors and system studies experts. We can assist with any size solar projects from <1 MW tied directly into the local distribution network or large scale (>100 MW) solar farms connected to transmission system power grid via utility substation. Booth can provide the full spectrum of engineering services to assist with solar farm development from the initial planning stage through complete installation and commissioning. To date, Booth has assisted with over 3 Gigawatts of solar development, whether it be initial planning and development, substation design or solar field design.
Booth can also prepare Solar Glare Analysis Reports for our clients. Using an online-based software package from ForgeSolar, we can model a Solar Farm based on its varying solar panel properties to predict the glare on nearby houses, streets with vehicles, overhead planes, etc. This Glare Analysis report aids our clients in obtaining approval to build the project, which is sometimes required by counties for zoning approval.
