We provided design, engineering, project management and commissioning of solar thermal facilities at 6 YMCAs of Northwest North Carolina. This included procuring Solar Power Purchase agreements (PPA). Working with the customer to specific requirements, the UGC team conceptualized the design, worked with engineers and vendors to identify and resolve design issues and to build and commission the project. The solar power generation facilities were designed to use water as a heat transfer medium. By using water instead of glycol, the solar facility is able to create and sustain a hotter water temperature that ultimately increases the amount of energy the YMCA can offset from conventional fossil fuel heating sources, dramatically reducing the YMCA's carbon footprint.Summary:
UGC provided design, engineering, project management and commissioning for the U.S. Marine Corps at their Parris Island facility in Beaufort, South Carolina. The MCRD uses the system to provide cooling and hot water for the 15 Battalion mess hall. The solar thermal air-conditioning system consists of 85 evacuated tube collectors - A unique advantage of the design utilized water as the heat transfer medium in the solar collectors with absolutely no concentration of glycol.Summary:
The solar canopy project included design and installation of a 1.17 MW photovoltaic system connected to the existing facility and to the Georgia Power electrical grid.
The photovoltaic system installed on a steel canopy structure (approximately 190,000 SF) that is over an existing bus parking lot/maintenance facility.Summary:
2 MW Solar Generation project - provided design, engineering, project management and commissioning of facilities at Fletcher Business Park in Fletcher, NC.
Solar Thermal Boiler/Chiller Integration Energy Assessment - provided design, engineering, project management and commissioning of facilities for Freightliner in Cleveland NC and Gastonia NC.
Solar Thermal Boiler/Chiller Integration Energy Assessment - provided design, engineering, project management and commissioning of facilities in Florence, South Carolina.
