Renewable Energy

CHA recognizes that each energy project is unique, but the knowledge gained from past work is priceless when developing a new program of cost-effective energy solutions. We help industrial, commercial and institutional clients develop energy management and sustainability programs that reduce energy costs through renewable energy sources and intelligent efficiency improvements.

One means to accomplish this is through the careful analysis of bounded thermal and electrical loads that can be served locally with distributed energy resources (DERs) operating independently from the traditional grid and functioning autonomously as physical or economic conditions may dictate. By very definition, this is a Microgrid: a platform to leverage the resilient and sustainable benefits of clean, renewable energy sources such as wind, solar, biofuels, biomass, and even natural gas.

In this function, CHA provides feasibility studies, multidisciplinary conceptual and detailed engineering and design services, and technical support to provincial, state and utility programs.

Our renewable energy services include:
  • PV System Design and Layout
  • Electrical Design
  • Structural Engineering
  • Substation and Distribution
  • Interconnection Applications and Assistance
  • Civil Site Design and Permitting
  • Microgrid Design, Construction and Operation
