KELSEYVILLE: 252 kWp

Located in Kelseyville (California, USA), this 252 kWp floating solar plant is installed on a wastewater treatment reservoir with an area of 13,300 m² (1 ha).

The platform is equipped with Classic version of Hydrelio® technology and supports 720 floating solar panels of 72 cells (350W Canadian Solar standard modules). The total structure covers 17% of the water surface.

For this project, Ciel & Terre supervised the engineering of the floating PV system and the anchorage. Our scope included:

  • Supply of our Hydrelio® (made in the US) and design of the floating platform
  • Design and supply of the anchoring solution

Anchored at the bottom of the pond, the anchoring solution has been designed to meet a maximum 0.9 m depth and a same water level variation (0.9 m, as the pond can be affected by drought).

 

Kelseyville’s floating solar plant has been operational since September 2018 and generates green electricity to the local grid.
