    Energy Savings Performance Contracting Technical Energy Audit Services

    Solar projects are highly scalable and can be tailored to meet budget requirements, financial cash flows, capture industry incentives, and public awareness/messaging needs. McKinstry does a feasibility analysis that looks at rough project costs, savings, maintenance, risks, and other relevant information to help you decide is solar is a viable option for clients.

    Throughout the development process, McKinstry uses industry accepted solar modeling tools to predict system performance. McKinstry's solar projects focus on lowering the first cost of installation to create a better return on investment.

    Project Dates: September 2014 - June 2014

    Pendleton Solar PV Array

    This Solar Array project's 31,000 square foot, 475 SV panel installation is part of OMD's list of goals and projects, developed with a long-ranging Net Zero strategy in mind, to upgrade many of their existing facilities with alternate energy and energy efficiency measures. McKinstry can pinpoint the best potential renewable energy projects for the City of Bend toward the City's similar goals of renewable energy generation.

    Measures of Successful Implementation:

    • These SV panels convert 150 kW of energy to AC power supplied back to the grid
    • The Pendleton installation offsets 183,780 kWh annually (enough energy to power 17 homes for one year)
    • McKinstry helped the OMD receive $250,000 of grant funding and $84,319 of incentives to help offset nearly half of the construction costs

    The City of Bellingham partnered with McKinstry to convert its streetlights to LED fixtures, cutting energy consumption by as much as 60% while saving $240,000 in annual energy savings. That’s 18,000 retired light bulbs that the city no longer has to pay for, power and maintain. Read the case study to learn more.
