A new skilled nursing facility for aging, developmentally disabled residents seeks Net-zero

 

 

 

  • Benchmarking
  • Net-zero energy pre-design
  • Utility cost-saving estimates for photovoltaic array

The Washington State Department of Health and Human Services engaged the Sage consultant team to develop concepts for a new skilled nursing facility for aging, developmentally disabled residents in State care. Per Governor’s Executive Order 18-01, most new state facilities must be designed to be zero energy or zero energy capable. O’Brien360 provided the team with benchmarking information to determine the energy budget for the new, high-efficiency facility options, as well as building design and operational recommendations to achieve this lofty goal. O’Brien360 leveraged the experience of A&R Solar to develop pre-design phase pricing and utility cost-saving estimates for a large, 1+ MW photovoltaic array required to achieve the net-zero target.
