City of Colville Solar PV

City of Colville Solar PV

DESCRIPTION: This design/build project provided a 99.36kw PV system for the City of Colville. PCI and its subsidiary company, PCI Renewable, Inc., guidance was instrumental in securing additional funding for the project, which included a Washington State grant, and production incentives offered through Avista.

The system is comprised of two hundred eighty eight (288) US made SolarWorld SW345-XL modules, 48 of each per tracker. Each of the six arrays track the sun independently in order to maximize production. Power is converted by 12 Itek Energy PVI-7600 Inverters and the system is connected at 480 volts, 3-Phase. At the time of commissioning, the system was the largest of its kind in Washington State.

The system is guaranteed to produce 144,435 Kwh per year, which equates to cost reduction of $13,374 at the current utility rate. Real time and historical production may also be viewed over the web.

SERVICES PROVIDED: Electrical System Design

DESCRIPTION: In 2015, WSU became part of a U.S. Department of Energy (DOE)-sponsored project to research, develop and demonstrate technologies needed to create “smart” buildings, campuses and cities to better manage energy usage. Led by Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) and including the University of Washington (UW), the pioneering regional partnership brings the three campuses together to demonstrate transaction-based energy management for the first time, testing the large-scale use of transactive controls involving multiple buildings and devices. The transactive idea combines financial signals and control techniques to shift energy usage in devices, buildings and campuses.

As part of the project, WSU researchers will install solar panels on the Pullman campus for the first time and integrate them into Pullman’s “Smart City’’ test bed and WSU’s microgrid system. The WSU researchers will be showing how the WSU Pullman campus can power critical city infrastructure in the event of a power outage.

The solar array communicates automatically with generators at WSU as well as with a unique, one megawatt energy storage battery in Pullman. The campus system communicates automatically with electric meters at both the PNNL and UW campuses.

The solar array consists of a 33.66 kWdc rooftop mounted system, and a 48.96 kWdc ground mount system, which also includes a 6.1 kWdc student demonstration system. Installed system size was 82.62 kWdc with capacity for an additional 30.6 kWdc.

Washington Corrections Center for Women

Washington Corrections Center for Women

DESCRIPTION: The goals of this project were threefold: to integrate the existing campus CCTV system into a single unified network architecture; to replace all cameras on separate, discrete DVR systems and integrate these cameras into the campus networked system; and to provide new cameras as needed for safety, security and PRIA considerations. Some of the existing cameras were ONVIF compliant and consequently could be integrated with the new networked campus system. Approximately 325 cameras were modified, replaced, or added to the campus system. In addition to CCTV system replacement, hardwired control panels at Central Control were replaced with touchscreens to provide reliable integration and call-up of the networked camera system. UPS systems were also replaced due both to battery failure and system age.
