Renewable Energy - Success in Solar

In 2010, in response to growing interest in renewable energy, our internal engineering group and project team designed and constructed their first ground-mount solar systems in North Carolina—completing a portfolio of 5.2MWdc.  
Since then, we’ve expanded to drive successful work on solar projects of all types and sizes - including a  project that we are currently working on - Pine Bend Refinery Solar Project - that is on track to be the largest behind-the-meter array in the nation.  It clocks in at 45Mw.

Experience in Design-Build Solar Farm Construction

Hunt offers comprehensive electrical contracting services for industrial solar farm projects. We can design your solar field specifically to meet your energy demands. From site analysis and design, to installation and monitoring, we manage your power plant to be a reliable long-term clean energy solution. Recent notable projects include the Pine Bend Refinery Solar Field and the Hutchinson Utilities Commission Solar Array.

At Pine Bend, Hunt Electric is constructing a 45-Mw solar installation that includes over 100,000 panels across 300 acres. The project will become the US’ largest single-site use of direct solar power upon completion and will have a peak-energy production capacity to satisfy roughly 30% of the refinery’s 135-Mw power needs.  That produces enough electricity to power the equivalent of more than 8,400 homes per year.

For Hutchinson Utilities, Hunt and Ziegler Renewable Energy Services created an approximately 80,000 square foot solar array which was put into service November 2021. The project was 625 KW AC, which is a uniquely large solar array for a municipal utility.

Whether it is a rooftop array to improve the sustainability of a company headquarters, or a large solar field for industrial power supply, Hunt has the experience and resources necessary to design, build, and maintain large solar installations.
