Energy Prediction and Construction Cost Estimate of SunMine

EcoSmart tasked DNV KEMA to estimate capital costs and perform an energy estimate for the SunMine project, based on a 2 MW DC ground mount vertical axis tracker system.
Based on costs as of August 2013, DNV KEMA estimated capital costs for construction of the site, and expects these to be approximately $1.83 per Wp (based on August 2013 costs) Continue reading Energy Prediction and Construction Cost Estimate of SunMine
