Hydrologic Planning on an Earth Mount Solar® Site


A hydrologic study of the Earth Mount Solar® PV system was conducted by Taney Engineering, an independent, professional civil engineering and land surveying firm. From this study, the imperviousness rating of Earth Mount Solar systems was determined, as were the expected flow depths and velocities encountered by these systems during 100-year rain events. A variety of conditions and assumptions were modeled — including soil type, slope, precipitation amount, and whether or not drainage control was employed on the site — with the results comparing favorably, and in fact almost identically, to those achieved by natural, undeveloped land when recommended site-specific drainage control improvements are implemented.
