Solar Photovoltaic System for Wastewater Treatment Facility
Weston & Sampson provided design and construction administration services for $22 million in upgrades to the City’s wastewater treatment facility. The design and bidding of the capital improvement project was administered through the State of Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) using State Revolving Fund (SRF) program, and portions of the project were funded with American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) of 2009.
This project included the design of a 27 kW solar photovoltaic system, as well as green building design concepts, to improve operational efficiency and reduce future maintenance costs. After performing a screening of renewable energy alternatives available at the site, Weston & Sampson prepared technical specifications and contract documents for the procurement of a 27 kW solar photovoltaic system, originally designed to be a combination of both ground-mounted and roof mounted systems.
Weston & Sampson also performed construction support services, including submittal review and progress inspections. Weston & Sampson prepared and submitted the Statement of Qualifications Application required for Renewable Energy Certificate eligibility, on behalf of the city.
