Additional Engineering Services
JBA has a firm commitment to alternative energy projects. In the last decade, we have lent our expertise to for the development of solar fields, wind generation facilities, hydrogeneration systems, cogeneration systems, waste-heat-boiler systems, and Biosolids-to-Energy (B2E) facilities.
In the last four years, we have directly or indirectly provided Civil Engineering and Land Surveying services to clients such as NRG Energy, eSolar, First Solar, U.S. Solar, Amonix, Sunpower, and Tessera Solar (among others) for large-scale solar generating station sites in the Southwestern United States.
These projects include a 92 Megawatt (MW) solar in field in Los Angeles County, CA, a 22 MW solar field in Riverside County, CA, a 20 MW solar field in San Diego, CA, and a 20 MW solar field in New Mexico, among others.
Our services for these projects have included site layout and design, grading, field and aerial topographic surveys, ALTA’s, Records of Survey, construction staking, hydrology studies & drainage analysis, floodplain modeling, water quality documents, cost estimates, applications/permits coordination, and project/bid management.
In addition, we have provided clients with preliminary site research/investigations and “fatal flaw” analyses for dozens of potential solar sites in California, Arizona, Nevada, and New Mexico.
These recent projects have given us unparalleled experience in the challenges and considerations unique to each of major solar technologies, included Concentrating Solar Power (CSP), fixed and tracking photovoltaic (P.V.), Concentrating Photovoltaic (CPV) units, and Concentrating Solar Power (CSP) units.
We believe these projects demonstrate our long-term commitment to the innovative technologies that promise a brighter, cleaner future.
