Campbell Scientific manufactures data- loggers, data acquisition systems, and measurement and control products used worldwide in a wide variety of research and industry applications. The company's mission is to satis- fy the instrumentation needs of their customers by providing versatile and reliable products that are rugged enough to withstand harsh, remote envi- ronments, while providing precision measurements. With nearly 40 years of scientific sen- sor development and datalogger manufacturing experi- ence, the company is an industry leader in producing flexible and highly robust measurement systems with low power requirements. CAMPBELL SCIENTIFIC OFFERS VERSATILE SOLUTIONS FOR SOLAR MONITORING APPLICATIONS The solar PV utility market is expe- riencing significant growth that will continue through the foreseeable future. In the U.S. alone, utility com- panies are expected to add at least 20GW of solar PV power systems to their power generation portfolios by 2020. Solar PV system investment cost remains a critical success factor in support of these growth projections. Consequently, PV system cost reductions will be essential to help drive accelerated growth of utility solar farm installations over the next decade. A new approach to help reduce the cost of large PV installations is the super-sized module. The concept of the super-sized module is very simple. A design is available today for a super-sized Bob Hayworth, Chairman and CEO of Baja Construction, shares why his company is so prolific in the solar industry. SPDN: Baja Construction – what do you do? BH: Baja, established in 1981, is a construction compa- ny engaged in the business of highly specialized and engineered high-tensile, light gauge steel structures. We design, engineer, supply and install solar support struc- tures as part of a solar ground-mount, carport and RV/boat storage solution, and continue to build carports, RV/boat and self-storage facilities. SPDN: Why is Baja winning most of the solar structure business? An interview with Steve Schwerd, Partner and VP of Facilities and Energy Engineering, KMB Design Group. SPDN: Tell our readers about your com- pany. SS: KMB Design Group is a full-service consulting engineering firm licensed in 49 states. Headquartered in New Jersey with branch offices in Massachusetts and Chicago, we provide professional services nationally. Our three divisions are telecommu- nications, design-build, and facilities and energy engi- neering. Our F&E division is especially strong in the area of MEP (mechanical, electrical and plumbing) engi- neering for buildings, in addition to solar engineering. Recognized as the country's lead- ing minority, woman-owned engi- neering, procurement and con- struction company, Stronghold Engineering has celebrated over two decades of federal contracting and commercial construction excellence and award-winning success. Stronghold Engineering is an ENR ranked, award- ing-winning design build and bid build general contrac- tor with a focused emphasis in government and public works construction. Throughout its celebrated history of 22 years, Stronghold has designed and constructed high profile ground up facilities, technically challenging repair and renovations for historical and non-historical facilities, and significant seismic upgrades, as well as Continued on Page 21 Continued on Page 18 Continued on Page 21 SUPER-SIZED PV MODULES: THE NEW GENERATION OF SOLAR POWER BAJA: WINNING SOLAR DEALS STRONGHOLD ENGINEERING A PROUD SPONSOR OF THE BOOT CAMPAIGN KMB DESIGN GROUP: SMALL FIRM FEEL, LARGE SCALE PROJECTS Continued on Page 18 Continued on Page 21 O s e r C o m m u n i c a t i o n s G r o u p C h i c a g o W e d n e s d a y, O c t o b e r 2 3 , 2 0 1 3 A high efficiency Phono Solar module has been paired with the innovative Enphase microinverter to create an AC module solution for optimized system perform- ance. The AC solution is perfect for resi- dential and commercial applications. Customers may start with just one PS250 AC module and increase their sys- tem wattage as budget, time and space per- mit. Since each Phono Solar AC module produces grid compliant AC current, the modules serve as building blocks with no matching or string sizing required. The integrated Enphase microinverter instantly con- verts DC to ready-to-use AC power. The intelligent microinverter sends vital health and performance infor- mation to the Enphase Envoy communications gateway.
