Equipment Driving Through Chino Valley Solar


Project Overview

Chino Valley Solar is a 20MW solar plant constructed in the midst of 235 acres of rolling hills in Chino Valley, AZ. This required the site to be leveled to allow for full exposure of the sun to all solar panels. The placement of cut to fill of approximately 625,000CYDs of soil was necessary to prepare the site and was completed in 3.5 months.

Along with the leveling of the site came many new drainage issues that were addressed with the installation of rip rap, mat reinforcement blankets, pipe culvert crossings, sediment basins, A3-barrel box culvert, and A4-barrel box culvert. In addition to the site balancing and erosion control measures BCI installed approximately 4 miles of gravel road to service the completed solar plant.
