Shifting ground underneath a utility-scale solar site can damage trackers and equipment, leading to costly repairs or even complete demolition of a project. One common way a foundation can change post-installation is through a process called differential settlement.

This webinar will explore differential settlement in detail and provide ways to overcome the process for a utility-scale solar installation. With the right equipment and action plan, a solar farm can withstand surface changes from differential settlement and stay functioning for decades.

After watching the webinar, you’ll gain knowledge on the following topics:

  • An overview of differential settlement (when and how it occurs)
  • Implementing measures to withstand a shifting foundation
  • The importance of tracker design in accommodating foundation changes
  • An understanding of a structure’s limitations during a differential settlement event

Anne Fischer from PV Magazine facilitates the conversation between Rahul Chandra, Head of Marketing at Nevados, and jenya Meydbray, Chief Commercial Officer at Nevados.
