NW Photon Energy Retrofits Urban Retail Redevelopment
Portland, OR – August 18, 2016 -- NW Photon Energy (NWPE), a leading provider, designer and installer of turnkey commercial solar systems in the Pacific Northwest, today announced the completion of two Feed-in-Tariff (FIT) systems for an urban retail redevelopment on N. Killingsworth Avenue. Located in the Overlook/Humboldt neighborhood of North Portland, these systems were eligible for the FIT program under the small systems category (<10kW). Building owner, CG OR 1, LLC, will sell all power generated back to PGE for premium payments.
CG OR 1, LLC, contacted Energy Trust Trade Ally and solar installer, NW Photon Energy, in conjunction with an extensive renovation of the 6,862 square foot building originally built in 1948. NW Photon Energy introduced the FIT program to CG OR 1, LLC and provided turnkey coordination of the application process, the interconnection application, permits and approvals.
Like many commercial property owners, CG OR 1, LLC, not only wanted to utilize the FIT program to generate revenue but also saw solar as a means of maximizing underutilized roof space while improving their building’s marketability to environmentally-friendly tenants. Current tenants include Eddie’s Flat Iron Pizza, Garagiste Wine Bar, Jan-Marc Wine Cellars and Smartypants.
