The Christmas Valley Project in the news:
Hire Electric had the great privilege of working on a large commercial solar array for the Oregon Military Department with Randolph Construction Services and Bradford Engineers. The project uses all Oregon Manufactured solar equipment with solar panels form SolarWorld in Hillsborough, OR and inverters from PVPowered in Bend. Here are a few photos of the Horizon/Desert Solar Project:
In 1937 The Dalles needed a new hospital. In 2010 the same building had been long converted to a clinic and was set to house a regional 911 center. And it desperately needed a new roof. Through an ARRA grant via the Oregon Department of Energy, Wasco County was able to add 25kW in roof mounted solar to the re-roof project. Hire Electric was awarded the design build contract in July 2010 and the solar came on line in early December. This system utilized 104 – Sharp 240 watt modules into 5 – PVPowered 4800 inverters with PV1010 monitoring.
