Castillo Engineering wins 56 MW community solar projects in Illinois

By Editor


Castillo Engineering has won the Engineer of Record (EOR) contract for three community solar projects in Illinois, totaling 56 MW across 14 projects, during the first quarter.

The portfolios consist of three projects for a total of 23 MW with Recon Corporation; seven projects for a total of 21 MW, and four projects for a total of 12 MW, Castillo Engineering said.

All of these fixed-tilt, bifacial solar module projects will leverage Castillo Engineering’s in-house civil, electrical, structural, and power system studies services alongside its Project Management Office (PMO). The projects are expected to be completed by Q1 of 2025.

One of many community solar projects Castillo Engineering & Recon Corporation have completed in Illinois.

“We continue to select Castillo due to their extensive experience in completing projects cost effectively and efficiently,” said Scott Walker, President at Recon Corporation. “The fact that Castillo has all engineering disciplines – civil, electrical and structural, in-house has helped to streamline and reduce costs on all of the projects we have completed in Illinois together.”

Over the past four years, Illinois has tripled the amount of installed community solar capacity in the state.
