Plant Design & Engineering. Maximizing Energy Output and Project Value.

We design power plants to maximize energy output and reduce LCOE. Every project is different. Project specific factors such as the local irradiance, weather, soil, wind, and topography must be taken into account for the design, layout, technology selection, and system configuration.

Maximizing energy output and project value

Our expert engineers have designed many PV plants and have experience with the numerous iterations of plant design improvements. In a process called “design optimization,” we go beyond standard plant engineering to configure PV plants that maximize project value. By applying our experience and expertise to meticulously configure PV plant parameters, we ensure our PV plants deliver the maximum financial results.
As an example, we regularly optimize the right combination of DC:AC ratio with a project’s unique financing and site constraints to deliver the best combination of LCOE vs. NPV. Our PV plants achieve your most important objectives by delivering the project specific economics that are most important to you.

Project Development

Project development is essential to creating valuable power plant assets and includes activities prior to construction, such as securing a power purchase agreement (PPA), establishing site control, project permitting, and project financing.

We have a proven track record of successfully converting PPA’s to energy. Our experienced project development team has successfully developed numerous solar power plants in highly regulated environments. If you have a PPA with Eco Power, you can count on us to deliver reliable, dependable, and cost-effective solar energy for the life of that agreement.

Project Finance

Low-cost financing resulting in lower LCOE

Cost of capital is the single-largest contributor to reducing LCOE. The impact financing terms have on the total cost of ownership is far more substantial than the module, balance of system, project development, or operating costs over the life of the plant.

Often a major constraint, obtaining low-cost financing and access to capital markets is critical to accelerating solar adoption worldwide. Eco Power is able set up innovative deal structures resulting in valuable returns for you.

Advanced PV modules

Eco Power modules couple leading-edge technology with the manufacturing excellence and quality control that comes from working close together with Ritek Solar, one of the world's most experienced producers of advanced PV modules. As a result we are able to provide the best in performance, quality, and reliability to you because Ritek Solar invests yearly considerable in research and development.
Eco Power is uniquely positioned to serve the full spectrum of PV applications and customer needs. We have two distinct module technologies, both of which are designed and manufactured under the most stringent quality standards. Each individual module is visually and tecnically checked before leaving the factory. With a production capacity over 300 mWp yearly and more than 600 MWp installed worldwide, Ritek Solar modules are the foundation for our high-performance PV energy solutions.

Balance of systems technologies

Optimizing the entire power plant

We optimize the entire balance of system—which consists of all of the non-module components of the solar power plant. By aligning all of our technology roadmaps and process improvements, we have uncovered tremendous opportunities to increase energy yield and reduce LCOE.

We have access to numerous cutting edge technologies. In addition, we collaborate with our technology partners and OEM’s to drive custom specifications for various power conversion components and improve overall plant performance.

SITE PREPARATION AND ENVIRONMENTAL MITIGATION

We continuously evolve our site preparation processes in order to minimize land disturbance. One example of this is the disk-and-roll technique, which contours the land without changing the macro-level topography and existing drainage patterns in order to minimize impact, resulting in less earth movement, air emissions, and water use during construction.
