American Capital Energy (ACE) has announced that the company is constructing 20 percent of the utility-scale solar photovoltaic (PV) power plants slated to come online in the U.S. in 2010, according to the recently released Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA) report, "June 2010 Utility-Scale Solar Power Projects in the United States."

ACE has been building large solar PV projects for more than half a decade and the company will deliver 27 megawatts (MW) of utility-scale power in 2010 with projects that are currently under construction in Boston, MA (2 MW); Searchlight, NV (20 MW); and Hamilton, NJ (5 MW).

"American Capital Energy is proud to be part of the fast growing solar market in the U.S. Our company has roots in solar going back to the 1970s and we're thrilled the industry is taking off. American Capital Energy's turn-key solar engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) approach and deep solar talent is being recognized by major utilities and we are landing significant utility market contracts. These contracts account for 20 percent of the utility-scale PV power coming online in 2010," said Tom Hunton, CEO of American Capital Energy.

"Each of ACE's utility-scale projects is very different in scope and challenges, such as wetlands and brownfields, and this is where our creative and tenured in-house engineering team excels. Much of our success is due to ACE's experienced project management team and partner contractors who have a proven track record of building projects on time and on budget."

ACE, an American-owned solar-electric power systems integrator, has emerged as a leader in the development and construction of utility-scale solar PV arrays. The company is committed to helping utilities reduce long-term operational costs through the development of cost-efficient and effective solar energy systems.

In addition to its utility-scale projects, ACE installations include the largest roof top installation in U.S. and other large notable arrays for top companies in the U.S.

ACE manages every aspect of solar array construction and integration for its customers. It offers financial analysis, project financing, system design, procurement, project management, installation, operation training and maintenance. A hallmark of ACE's business is quickly moving its customers from concept to construction and optimizing each array design to the given environment to maximize its solar output.

The ACE engineering and contracting team has been able to adapt ground-mount arrays using ballasted mounts for brownfields, fixed tilt mounts for smaller spaces or wetlands, and single-axis trackers for larger plots.
