Preliminary Design for 15MW Alberta Solar Project including Preliminary layout, equipment selection, energy production analysis, and glint and glare study for 15MWac project in Alberta, Canada. In July of 2019, FrontLine Energy Consulting contracted Phoventus Inc to perform a glint and glare assessment for the proposed solar layout.
This assessment uses GlareGauge, a ForgeSolar software specialized in calculating glint and glare impact. Moreover, this software is compatible with FAA glare guidelines and provides a clear statement on whether the facility passes FAA regulations regarding the impact of glint and glare. GlareGauge calculates the ocular impact over an entire calendar year in one-minute intervals, including all times between when the sun rises above the horizon until the sun sets below the horizon.
