Solar contractor for design and installation of ground-mount systems
Saskatchewan | Alberta | British Columbia
For agricultural, commercial and utility projects
We utilize net metering and special programs such as Alberta Growing Forward, SaskPower Small Power Producers, Net Metering programs and more to offer the best ground-mount solar solutions for farms and agricultural businesses across Western Canada.
We offer the most efficient technology for solar foundations. Our unique capabilities and experienced team make solar power simpler and better for business, offering more peace of mind and a greater impact on your business bottom line.
We offer such services as geotechnical testing, foundation engineering, site layout, piles installation, racking assembly and PV modules mounting to solar developers, EPC contractors and utilities. We manage the installation flow of our scope to ensure your project is completed efficiently and on time.
PV MODULES MOUNTING
We provide solar modules installation services that reduce errors and maximize efficiency, while meeting all manufacturer standards.
Our experienced mechanical team can install racking in record times, while our engineers can suggest designs and type of racking that is optimal for a specific site.
Durable and safe
In addition to solar power foundations, our Gayk pile-driving fleet allows for installing road barriers, safety guardrails and road signs.
Bankable and accurate
To determine suitability of pile-driving technology for a specific site and to optimize the foundation design we conduct horizontal load testing, pull-out testing, borehole soil sampling, soil lab analysis, resistivity testing.
Fast and cost-effective
Depending on the embedment depth and site conditions one crew working on a single GAYK pile-driving machine can install 100-200 piles per day. The speed of the installation combined with inexpensive piles deliver the most cost-effective solution.

What They Said
Solar Plantation, led by Mikhail Ivanchikov and supported by his crew, provided outstanding technical expertise and a safe, competent geo-technical investigation at our proposed PV 5 MW solar site in Southern Alberta. Working diligently from daybreak to sunset, they completed numerous boreholes and empirical test loading of driven steel piles. Subsequent to the field investigation, they complied the field and lab data, conferred with the pile/racking manufacturer to optimize the design and provided an engineered solution at minimum cost. I highly commend Solar Plantation for their work and I am pleased to use their services and recommend them to others.Robert – Medicine Line Renewables
We decided on using Schletter racking who recommended we consider Solar Plantation pile driving services for our driven posts. Running up against winter we wanted to ensure that the posts were installed before frost. Mikhail mobilized the GAYK and installation team to Northern Saskatchewan with limited notice and drove 160 posts into the ground in less than two days. It was a delight working with Solar Plantation’s installation team and I look forward to working with them again.Moustafa Youssef – Grace Energy
Solar Plantation installed piling on 2 projects for us in 2016 totalling over 270kW of PV Solar. Mikhail and his crew were very good to work with. The customers of both projects were extremely happy with the final product. Solar Plantation showed an depth knowledge of the piling and racking system they supplied to us and the installations went without a hitch. We look forward to working with them again in the future.Bryce Allred – Solar Optix Energy Services
