"D&A is committed to providing personal client service with innovative value"

Services: Renewable Energy Engineering

D&A has recent experience in renewable energy studies, permitting, design and funding for water purveyors.  The environment continues to change and evolve in the areas of renewable energies making projects more feasible.  D&A has experience in determining the feasibility for projects using the latest funding mechanisms.  We are also familiar with the permitting needs for renewable projects including PG&E’s interconnection agreement application and the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) licensing and exemption process.

One of our recent projects (El Dorado County Hydroelectrical Development Options Study) included the feasibility analysis for over 80 hydroelectric projects throughout El Dorado County and determined the top 10 projects recommended for more detailed analysis. D&A has also recently designed two in-conduit hydroelectric projects in California to replace existing pressure reducing stations. Each have reached the turbine equipment procurement stage, with one scheduled for construction later this year.

D&A has also worked with the El Dorado Irrigation District to obtain a grant with the California Energy Commission (CEC) through their Public Interest Energy Research (PIER) program.  The project is the El Dorado County Water Systems Energy Generation, Storage, Efficiency, Demand Management and Grid Support Project.  The project objectives include identifying cost effective measures to integrate energy management.
