The Fort Gordon Energy Resilience Project provides onsite energy generation and supply diversity at Fort Gordon, which is home to the U.S. Army Cyber Center of Excellence.
Approximately 140,000 solar panels located on the 270-acre site generate enough renewable energy to power 4,300 homes per year.
The project is part of the Georgia 3×30 project, which includes three 30-MW solar projects located on three army installations in Georgia.
McKim & Creed provided civil/site engineering; mechanical, engineering and plumbing engineering; and surveying services for this project. A new 115-kV utility substation supports power generation . A 34.5-kV distribution system of underground and overhead conductors, including fused switches and isolation sections, were provided to collect the generation at thirteen 2500-kVA transformers.
