SAM has been awarded a contract by a major electric power company to provide a range of geospatial services for a large solar project in the Southeast United States. SAM will conduct an ALTA boundary and topographic survey to facilitate the development of a 2,400-acre solar farm, which will have a 400MW capacity once completed.
