2015 was our busiest year so far with 760kW worth of installations. Here’s a slide show highlighting some of that work (and some old jobs thrown in just for fun).
Our major accomplishments of 2015 were the community college projects with Schneider Electric: a 175kW tracker, flat roof mount and carport at Walla Walla Community College and a 100kW roof mount at Columbia Basin College in Pasco, WA. We also started the 123kW solar carports at Tamastslikt in Pendleton and did MANY Washington Made itek residential system. In Oregon and utilities in Washington that have tapped out their incentive allocation we installed many SolarWorld systems.
2016 is starting off with a bang with a 100kW chicken coop in Milton-Freewater, OR and a 25kW hardware store in Arlington, OR; and promises to be equally rewarding for Hire and the whole solar industry in the Northwest. Things are up in the air with the Washington legislature and Washington’s solar incentive program but hopefully that will be decided in short order during the special session.
