Signal Energy Constructors
Signal Energy Constructors, a full-service EPC for wind, solar and clean energy, has awarded Trimark Associates a technology and services contract to address both regulatory compliance and operational control for the Garland Solar Project. Garland is a combined 200-MW photovoltaic (PV) based power generation resource under construction in Kern County, Calif.
Trimark won the project based on its extensive experience and thorough understanding of technology for metering, monitoring and controlling utility-scale power production facilities. The facility is subject to the California Independent System Operators (CAISO) tariffs and Business Practices Manual (BPM) requirements. Trimark’s end-to-end solution and commitment to delivering fully-functional projects made industry leading Trimark the ideal project partner.
“The Garland Solar Project truly encompasses the strength our partners have become accustomed to – a single, unified solution for PV control and compliance. We are excited to get started and continue our part in greening the grid,” says Trimark Founder and CEO Mark Morosky.
The Garland PV Project must meet CAISO requirements for metering, data telemetry and meteorological data. Trimark will provide an integrated system including tools to provide site control, performance monitoring and networking. The total approach includes: a CAISO Remote Intelligent Gateway (RIG) and associated CAISO New Resource Implementation (NRI) services; CAISO revenue meters and associated NRI services; a full featured Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) system including: T1-S Vantage – Trimark’s HMI application; a data historian; advanced inverter controls; substation power equipment monitoring; interfaces to SCE EMS; CAISO and SCE compliant meteorological stations; and integration with the overall fiber optic network. This end-to-end solution ensures that the Garland Solar Project will have a complete, integrated CAISO compliant system including full featured controls.
West Hills Construction
West Hills Construction, a general contracting firm based in Corona, Calif., has awarded Trimark Associates Inc. a technology, services and consulting contract to address both regulatory compliance and operational control for the Little Rock Pham Solar project. Little Rock is a 3MW photovoltaic generation site located in Palmdale, Calif.
The Little Rock Pham Solar project must meet grid regulator California Independent System Operator’s (CAISO) and host utility Southern California Edison’s (SCE) New Resource Implementation (NRI) requirements for revenue metering, data telemetry and meteorological data. In addition to providing these services, additional elements of the project include Trimark’s power generation control and monitoring system, T1-S Gateway SCADA, and physical and cyber protection of on-site equipment. This end-to-end solution ensures that the Little Rock Pham Solar project will have a complete, integrated CAISO compliant system including full featured controls. Trimark will also be on the ground-level with West Hills Construction offering CAISO and SCE consulting and support – critical insight through the NRI process that eliminates the guesswork from their path to interconnection.
