Em-link is the prime contractor designing a new solar array at Hanscom Air Force Base, Massachusetts. Em-link will design a combined solar photovoltaic and solar thermal energy system on base, along with a new renewable power distribution system. This design will include interface into the existing energy management and control system as well as sub-metering to comply with Massachusetts Solar Renewable Energy Certificate (SREC) requirements. Em-link will also perform structural loading analysis as well as Federal Building Life Cycle Cost (BLCC) financial analyses of multiple solar array configuration options. Em-link will be helping Hanscom Air Force Base boost its on-site renewable energy capacity through this project.
