Their challenge

When the County of Santa Clara Valley Health and Hospital System (SCVHHS) decided to install a photovoltaic system at their facility, they hired Salas O’Brien to assist the hospital in writing a request for proposal (RFP) for the installation of the desired photovoltaic system. The project involved energy engineering and planning.

Our solution

The Salas O’Brien team helped SCVHHS determine the scope of work, evaluate the proposals, and ultimately determine the best course of action during the construction of the system. We then aided the hospital with an economic analysis and performance model for the proposed 840 kW PV systems. Throughout the process, our engineers participated in county meetings to receive approval from Santa Clara County’s Board of Supervisors, performed design oversight, and conducted a review of the contractor’s submittals for code compliance and hospital standards.
