Power Purchase Agreements (PPA)
With the creation of new legislation in Virginia, PPAs are now an option for our customers here in the Commonwealth.
These options are wonderful for non-profits, churches, and municipal buildings.
For Russell Drumheller, 2020 was the year to go solar for Mountain Precision Tool. As a machine shop specializing in custom work for electronics, aerospace, and fiber optics, the space is no stranger to electric usage! Offsetting a portion of their consumption with clean, net-metered solar from their roof just made sense.
Our installation crew spent several days at this site, adding 192 Axitec 385w panels to the roof, maximizing solar production while also leaving room for the future service of HVAC and drainage equipment that also shares the roof space.
The Brandon Ridge project added net-metered solar to two office buildings, acting as a visible example of solar in Christiansburg, Virginia.
A USDA REAP grant contributed 25% of the total project cost.
Eastern Divide’s solar installation was completed in two phases, boasting a total roof-mounted array of over 80kW.
Baseline also installed a consumption monitoring system so the brewery can monitor their electrical usage circuit-by-circuit.
The solar array helps the brewery produce clean energy, while lowering operating costs for decades to come in Blacksburg, Virginia.
Let’s start the process today. Whether you’re just researching solar or looking for a detailed solar design, we’re ready for you.
During a site visit, we can go over all of the incentives your business may be eligible for, how much solar may be installed and what savings may look like.
