How Collection System Cabling Impacts the Finances of a Project
Figure 1 CookMedium-voltage collection system cable sizing has a large impact on the finances of any wind or solar project. The engineering decisions that go into sizing this cable directly impact the upfront capex of the project. Therefore, it is imperative that all wind and solar project stakeholders understand how cable sizes can impact the finances of a project and what tools may be available to influence that cost. Some cable sizing decisions will have a positive impact on the contractor or developer, and some may have a positive impact on the project owner. Understanding the impact of cable sizing on your organisation’s finances is important for you to be successful in your particular enterprise.
