Speeding the Adoption of Microgrids

老虎机网站龙8的网址Thomas Edison's invention of the electric lightbulb changed the world. But he also advocated energy conservation and once said, "I'd put money on the sun and solar energy. What a source of power! I hope we don't have to wait until oil and coal run out before we tackle that.”  

Shell isn’t waiting.

Black & Veatch designed, procured and constructed a microgrid老虎机网站龙8的网址 for Shell, which is using it to generate power while it also serves as a working test lab to explore advancements in renewable energy.

Harnessing Sun Power for a Sustainable Tomorrow

What Black & Veatch does isn’t always visible to people and communities where we work. But today and in the future, families and businesses in the Gila Bend area of Arizona will enjoy renewable energy generated from glistening solar fields as they track and collect the inexhaustible power of the sun.

老虎机网站龙8的网址In 2013, Black & Veatch was awarded an Engineering, Procurement and Construction (EPC) contract to design and build the 32-megawatt utility-class Gila Bend Solar Power Plant located on 400 acres in Gila Bend, Arizona
