Project Description

Location:   Borrego Springs, California
Project Capacity: 5 MW
Year Commissioned:   2014

The Desert Green Solar Project consists of a 5 MW solar farm with 240 dual-axis trackers, each supported on a single vibratory driven steel pile. Each tracker is mounted with a 25’ x 40’ tracker table covered in CPV panels. The large diameter piles required to support the panels are custom fabricated from rolled and welded steel plates. RRC met the project’s tight schedule and worked with our client to limit or eliminate cost increases that resulted from increased loading requirements due to changes in the tracker design.
