US Coast Guard Finds Success with Collaborative Funding Method for Renewable

The project provides jobs for 270 workers to install over 2.89 megawatts of PV panels and implement multiple other energy conservation measures (ECMs). When complete, the systems have the potential to produce more than four million kilowatt-hours annually and redirect up to $1 million of annual energy spending from brown power to PV-generated green power. It will reduce GHG emissions and improve the reliability of its electrical distribution system. In addition, ECMs have the potential to produce more than five million kilowatt-hours and could result in up to $1.1 million in annual savings, including new cool roofs that will reduce the annual cooling load of the buildings by 3.9 billion British thermal units. At the request of the Coast Guard, Schneider Electric developed the PV solution under the RESA, enabling third-party ownership of the renewable energy assets to captu...
