Willdan Energy Solutions understands that renewables and self-generation projects, such as solar (photovoltaic), geothermal, wind and micro turbines, represent a significant capital outlay. In a private industry, these
decisions are typically a matter of comparing direct and related costs to their direct savings over time. Public schools, colleges and cities are often suited for large-scale, self-generation projects but lack the time
and/or personnel needed to analyze equipment, costs and various funding sources.
We will help your public or private organization understand the complexities surrounding self-generation and demand-response programs.
Here at Willdan Energy Solutions, we are experts in the utilities’ incentive and rebate programs, as well as lease/bond and other low-cost financing options. These programs provide financial incentives and other
benefits to participating customers to curtail energy use.
Los Angeles Trade Tech College (LATTC) PIER Grant Program
WES assisted LATTC in obtaining funding to turn one of its buildings into a model Renewable-Based Energy Secure Communities (RESCO) building. This project involves Solar PV, Solar Thermal, li-ion system battery, and a
hot water storage system. The project supports the California Energy Commission recommendations for reducing energy bills and increasing energy delivery system reliability.
