Eaton Provides Power Management for Casino Solar Array

October 27, 2014 By Linda Hardesty

casinoEaton will provide electrical distribution equipment for a 6.4 MW DC solar installation at the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino Convention Center in Las Vegas. At peak production, the MGM Resorts International and NRG Energy project is expected to produce nearly 20 percent of the Mandalay Bay’s power demand.

Eaton received the contract from Sunora Energy Solutions, the design-build firm responsible for providing solar PV system engineering, procurement, fabrication and construction for the project. Under the agreement, Eaton’s electrical balance of system (BOS) technology and services will help maximize energy harvest.

Eaton will supply a range of power management, including: medium-voltage switchgear, transformers, switchboards, panel boards, disconnects, strut and cable trays, wire harnesses, as well as start up and commissioning services.
