Our Colorado climate presents an excellent opportunity to take advantage of more than just light and views. We can harness the energy from the mountain breeze or our 300+ days of sunshine to provide electricity and heat. When it does rain, we can capture and make use of that water before putting it back into the watershed.
Perhaps even more importantly, you’ll want to make the most of the resources you are using, so that the renewables you consider will be most effective. Beyond conserving fuel for space and water heating, we can offer ways to conserve electricity and water usage to further limit a reliance on outside sources.
We’ve designed projects ranging from integrating solar photovoltaic panels with daylight sensors and ultra-high efficiency track lighting (for a National Park retail store at 12,000 feet) to a completely off-grid home incorporating rainwater catchment, greywater recycling, LED lighting, low-flow fixtures, plus a ground-mount PV array for electricity.
