Lever Project   Aurora, OR

This 500 kilowatt system located at the Lever family farm covers approximately two acres and will produce an estimated 575,000 kilowatt-hours annually, enough energy to power 53 homes per year. The fixed-tilt array uses 2,128 poly-crystalline solar panels from Schuco, PVPowered inverters from Advanced Energy Renewables, and an energy monitoring system from DECK Monitoring. Despite site and weather challenges, including a 3-4% grade which required extensive site preparation and excessive spring rains that delayed required soil tests, the project came in on time and budget.

CherryWood Village   Portland, OR

The CherryWood Village Retirement Community is a 12 acre campus located in Portland, Oregon. CherryWood provides 318 units of retirement and assisted living housing for moderate income seniors in the community. The installation is a 92.4 kilowatt solar panel system estimated to cut electric bills by 25% annually. It is the first senior living facility to use solar power in the city of Portland.

Papa Murphy’s Take ‘N’ Bake   Madras, OR

This project included the installation of an 18.7 kilowatt solar photovoltaic system and a solar hot water system including five solar collectors and a 250 gallon water tank. S-5 clamp technology was recommended and used to fasten the solar panels and hot water collectors eliminating the need for a rail mounting system and roof penetrations.
