When you see a large solar array or a wind energy farm, we know that it did not just grow in that location.
First a Solar Panel company needs to apply design, test, manufacture, and distribute each solar PV panel. \
Then other companies to do the same for each electrical array supporting component.
Then a Solar Provider company works to market, purchase, finance, distribute, and install each system.
The last pieces of this process is for an engineering firm like ECO to help design the connections or to design a structure to hold the solar array, and then to monitor the installation.
In the above photos ECO designed a 12 panel array pole mounted structure called a 'Solar Flower' installed in central Houston.
In the below project, we applied our structural engineering services for the Solar Array now installed on the City of Houston's own permit office adjacent to downtown Houston, just off of Washington Avenue.
If you combine such smart onsite energy installations in just the right way with a design of a very energy efficient structure, you can sometimes get to a 'net zero' energy basis on an annualized basis.
'Net Zero' projects attempt to operate at a net zero annual energy requirement.
