Fish Springs Ranch Solar Energy Center

The Fish Springs Ranch Solar Energy Center in Nevada generates and stores power from the sun to provide energy for thousands of homes while reducing carbon emissions. Dudek completed environmental studies and land entitlements for the 300-megawatt (MW) solar energy facility, spanning over 2,000 acres of private land and public Bureau of Land Management (BLM) land.

How to Reduce Noise from Battery Energy Storage System Operations through Effective Site Design

When designing a battery energy storage system (BESS) to meet local noise ordinance requirements, developers and engineers must address noise emissions, especially when located in proximity to noise-sensitive areas like residential communities, schools, and medical campuses. Unlike photovoltaic (PV) solar facilities that primarily generate noise from inverters, BESS facilities have multiple noise sources (sometimes three

Dudek Noise Tool Enables Streamlined Siting Decisions for Energy Storage Facilities

Energy storage facilities are often sited near electrical distribution substations in urban and suburban environments to capitalize on the energy demands in these areas. In such locations, noise-sensitive uses may exist nearby, such as residential neighborhoods, hospitals, churches, and schools. Introduction of a noise generation source, such as an energy storage facility, must take existing

3 Tips for Infill Battery Energy Storage Permitting

Powin Energy’s 2-megawatt (MW)/8-MW-hour battery energy storage system (BESS) recently went online fewer than six months after the project was awarded, marking an energy industry first for the speed of battery energy storage permitting, manufacturing, installing, and commissioning of an asset of this size on a distribution feeder. Located in Irvine, California, the sys­tem provides
