KES Engineering has experience designing solar systems to suit your energy needs.
Our engineering services experience for solar include roof mounted solar systems
to supplement utility power, offsetting the cost of energy over a period of time
and to provide power to locations where utility power is unfeasible.
KES Engineering provided MEP design and construction period services for the renovation
of Amherst House, which is a community activity building at Kings Contrivance in
Columbia, MD. The renovation mainly involved replacement of HVAC and design for a new, green
KES designed a supplemental solar power system based on mono crystalline silica cells with
efficiency of 15.21% and maximum power under standard TEST conditions (STC) of 285 Wp.
By the end of the renovation, 58 photovoltaic panels were mounted
on the roof providing clean renewable power to the building and power to the
utility grid in the event that the solar system produces more power than the
building's demand loads.
The system also includes an advanced, web-based monitoring and diagnostic system
that can provide information and alerts about each individual microinverter and
solar module on the roof.
Wellington Wildlife Management
KES Engineering, Inc. provided a Solar Energy Feasibility Study for
the Office Building Addition and Site Improvements project at the Wellington
State Wildlife Management Area Facility in Princess Anne, Maryland.
The study examined the economics of incorporating a Solar Photovoltaic (PV)
System for the Office Building Addition and Site Improvements project at the
Wellington State Wildlife Management Area Facility.
The proposed PV system is based on using monocrystalline silicon cells
with efficiency of 15.21% and maximum power under Standard Test Conditions (STC)
of 285 Wp. The allocated roof space can support up to thirteen (13) Sunmodule Plus
SW 285 Mono crystalline panels (60 cells per module panel).
The annual energy production from the PV System installation will be 13,637 kWhr,
considering the correction factor and systems losses. This is equivalent to
1,136 kWhr of energy produced per month.
