This case study report focuses on the rebuild of a 469 kW ground array located at the Almeric L. Christian Federal Building in Christiansted, St. Croix, in the U.S. Virgin Islands.

The General Service Administration (GSA) suffered extensive damage to its solar arrays located throughout the Caribbean from Hurricanes Irma and Maria in 2017. While the damage that occurred was unfortunate, there are excellent lessons learned that can be gained and utilized on new systems.

The St. Croix site provides a particularly high-value opportunity for lessons learned due to the innovative rebuilding process utilized by GSA managers and the in-depth analysis performed by the project engineers.
