Solar Arrays To Be Installed For General Dynamics Ordnance And Tactical Systems


RPCS to provide mechanical installation services for Today’s Power, Inc. Project

Today's Power, Inc. (TPI) announced earlier this week their partnership to build two solar arrays for General Dynamics Ordnance and Tactical Systems (OTS), a Florida-based aerospace and defense company, and two Battery Energy Storage Systems for Ouachita Electric Cooperative (OECC). The solar arrays, each totaling 1.2 MWdc, will be constructed near General Dynamics-OTS' facilities in Hampton, Arkansas. RP Construction Services (RPCS) will serve as the mechanical installation partner supplying the racking for the solar portion of the project. The two battery energy storage systems will store electricity from the two solar facilities, and will have an output of 2.4 MW for two hours

All four projects will be developed by Today's Power Inc., and RPCS will be supplying and installing the solar array racking, which will consist of single-axis tracking systems by Array Technologies. The trackers keep the solar PV modules following the sun on its course throughout the day, optimizing energy gains and ensuring up to a 20 to 25 percent increase in energy production over fixed-tilt systems.

“We are very excited to be partnering with Today's Power Inc. as the mechanical installer for these arrays at the General Dynamics-OTS facilities,” says RPCS Sales Director Patty Thornton.

As mentioned, the sites will also incorporate on-site battery energy storage systems that will be supplied electricity generated by the solar arrays. The storage systems are designed to lower both the cost of operations for General Dynamics and for OECC customers.

“We are excited about this opportunity to expand our usage of renewable energy and reduce our carbon footprint at the General Dynamics-OTS Calhoun County facility,” Eric Ellis, Vice President and General Manager of Precision Systems at General Dynamics-OTS, said in a statement.

Construction is slated to begin this summer.
