Allagash Brewing Company hired us to perform a facility assessment, and then asked if we would like to propose a solar electric system for their new Portland bottling plant. We ended up being selected over several very good solar installation companies and designed and installed a 34 kW system on the flat roof.
After reviewing the energy audit, that Heliotropic Technologies created, and implementing most of the report's recommended energy conservation measures, their CEO reached out to Heliotropic Technologies to design and build a solar hot air system for their paint room. This measure created a less than a three year simple payback, after the federal tax credit, and provided Duratherm with a better than 50% return on their investment..
We designed & built a glazed Solarwall solar hot air heating system on the south-facing wall of this environmentally conscience business. This project was featured in a Solar Today article,
We were hired to be part of the Baxter School's new middle school design team. This project presented many challenges, being a school for deaf students with special needs. We recommended a unique building orientation to provide passive morning solar heating, a radiant slab, roof monitors with an interior lighting distribution system, as well as light shelves for the windows, daylight harvesting with a dimmable lighting control system, displacement ventilation and other measures to create a school with an energy requirement that was 50% lower than the commercial building codes required. This building become the first state -owned LEED certified facility in Maine.
Our Engineering Services business unit typically works with businesses of all sizes and municipalities, as well as provides services for other energy service companies.
