Terabase Energy Completes First Commercial Deployment of Terafab™ Solar Building Automation System

Terabase Energy, a pioneer in digital and automation solutions for solar power plants, is pleased to announce the successful completion of its first commercial project. The company’s Terafab™ building automation platform has installed 17 megawatts (MW) of capacity at the 225 MW White Wing Ranch project in Arizona. Delivered in partnership with developer Leeward Renewable Energy (LRE) and EPC contractor RES, this landmark project demonstrates significant progress in solar construction, a key potential that will help the industry scale up and achieve ambitious global decarbonization targets.
“This milestone marks a critical moment in our mission to accelerate the deployment of solar power plants to meet future terawatt demand,” said Matt Campbell, CEO of Terabase Energy. “Our partnership with Leeward Renewable Energy and RES. This collaboration not only validates the effectiveness of the Terafab system , but also lays the foundation for future projects. Additionally, the Terafab system is deployed with our Construct digital twin software to manage and monitor the construction of solar power plants, demonstrating physical connectivity between our existing products and field applications compatibility.”
“The benefits demonstrated in this project highlight the transformative potential of automation to advance solar construction practices, allowing us to accelerate project schedules and reduce project risks,” said Sam Mangrum, executive vice president of projects at LRE. “As the renewable energy landscape evolves, to continue to evolve, LRE is committed to adopting cutting-edge technologies and partnering with innovators like Terabase Energy.”
The record performance of this massive project demonstrates the potential of digitalization and automation to advance the solar industry, placing Terabase Energy and its partners at the forefront of this exciting trend.
“White Wing Ranch demonstrates that Terabase technology can drive significant advances in the safety, quality, cost and schedule of solar buildings,” said Will Schulteck, vice president of construction for RES. “We are excited about the opportunities ahead.”
