Renewable Energy

Renewable Energy

Developed areas consume a tremendous amount of U.S. energy-72% when including the commercial, residential, and industrial sectors (2004 DOE data). Implementing efficient and renewable strategies can significantly lower energy bills for building owners, while decreasing the demand on traditional coal and natural gas sources.

Depending on your location, financial incentives including federal, state, and local tax credits can be leveraged, altering initial investment costs and payback periods. (link to tax credits)

Applications

ImageWind
The ability to harness wind power depends on a site's location and the availability of sufficient wind. Many applications are being installed to help lower building operating costs by powering light poles, signs and outdoor lights.
 

ImageSolar Electric
Average Industry Cost: $7,000 - $8,000 / kW
The sun's power presents a tremendous source of renewable energy, even in cloudy locations. Energy can be stored in batteries or sold back to the grid. A variety of products exist which can install as panels or are incorporated into building materials.
 

ImageSolar Thermal (Domestic hot water and boiler supplement)
Payback: 4-6 years
Solar Thermal systems harness the sun to heat water and circulate it through a hot water system, reducing energy use by the hot water boiler. This can present tremendous savings and quick paybacks, especially in commercial and industrial facilities.
 

ImageGeothermal
Payback: 10-25 years
Geothermal systems harness the constant temperature of the earth and provide HVAC systems with air at a pre-treated temperature. This constant temperature, both during the summer and winter months, creates a more energy-efficient environment for HVAC systems to operate in.
 

Benefits
