Trihydro

“It was a pleasure to work with Creative Energies’ staff on our 27kW photovoltaic solar installation and we are very pleased with the project outcome and performance.”

The Challenge

In 2007, Trihydro, a national environmental engineering firm, headquartered in Laramie, WY built a state-of-the art, headquarters facility utilizing highly energy efficient equipment, high recycle content materials and extensive water savings strategies. In 2014, when they wanted to reduce their carbon footprint yet further, they contacted Creative Energies.

The Creative Energies Solution

Creative Energies worked with Trihydro to develop a system plan that fit the look of the site and that maximized energy production. Wyoming’s 25kW net metering cap limited the potential system size so a ground-mounted system with a high tilt angle was chosen.  Creative Energies helped Trihydro to submit a successful USDA REAP grant which served to offset 25% of the project cost.
