Construction of a Solar Photovoltaic System for the Explosive Ordinance Disposal Building at Canadian Forces Base Gagetown

The proposed project consists of the general construction of a ground mount Solar Photovoltaic system at the Explosive Ordinance Disposal training facility at Canadian Forces Base Gagetown, New Brunswick. The Solar Photovoltaic system will offset energy consumed by Explosive Ordinance Disposal building campus throughout the year while providing a source of green power for Explosive Ordinance Disposal Building SW-11.

The Solar Array will produce up to approximately 375 kilowatts of useful power output and a minimum 515 megawatt hours energy per year. The system is designed to generate as much yearly electrical power as the Explosive Ordinance Disposal facility consumes making it a net zero facility. The Solar Array photovoltaic panel will be located in a partial developed 8,600 square meter site directly adjacent the Explosive Ordinance Disposal building, leveled, graded and surrounded by security fencing.
