Lake Hensley Solar

The Hidden Dam/Hensley Lake Photovoltaic project involved the design, installation and commissioning of a new PV system and interconnect agreement with the local utility (PG&E) to provide a 47.5 kW DC nameplate system serving the Hidden View Campground and Water Reclamation treatment facility on the site.  The system was sized by request to provide 85,000 kWh of annual energy production.  The project was complicated by the fact that the installation location was on a hillside with slope in multiple planes and with large decomposed granite subsurface and visible boulders.
