On-site renewable energy offers building owners, businesses, developers, and municipalities tremendous opportunities to offset costs and generate new revenues. It is a challenging and sometimes complex business environment.
How do you transform under-utilized space into a power-producing asset?
Buildings & Energy provides expert guidance at every juncture. We start by establishing objectives for solar power: high output? high efficiency? high cost efficiency? best cost to output ratio? offset current electric use? sell to the grid? peak power requirements?
We evaluate available sunlight, shading conditions, zoning codes, environmental restrictions, weather patterns, public policy, feed-in tarriff rates, subsidies, and incentives. And we model the proposed system in various environmental and financial scenarios including risk, finance options, changing electric rates, and sale of the building or property.
Combining client priorities, technical data, and financial analysis, we plan a system that optimizes the interplay between technology, finance, and projected return on investment. More than anything else, our systems optimize power output. The result is an investment-grade perspective on renewable energy - not just a proposal to start construction.
Project management: Buildings & Energy also provides expert evaluation of contractor bids, project/construction management, and planning for phasing renewable energy over time.
