SACRAMENTO, Calif. – The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Sacramento District awarded a $4.76 million contract Sept. 25 to Tri-Technic Inc. of Sonora to build a photovoltaic solar grid at the Ord Military Community in Monterey.
The project will provide power to a classroom, office and data center building on Ord Military Community, part of the Presidio of Monterey.
Tri-Technic will consider two options for design – ground mounted or parking lot canopy solar arrays. The solar grid will be designed to generate up to one megawatt of energy – enough to meet all the building’s needs when it is completed in the fall of 2015.
“This project helps Ord Military Community come one step closer to sustainability by providing reliable, renewable power for this building,” said Arianna Raymundo, project manager for the Sacramento District. “We take sustainability seriously at the Corps and we’re proud to help the Presidio of Monterey meet renewable energy goals.”
Tri-Technic is a designated small business under the U.S. Small Business Administration’s business size regulations. The federal government sets aside certain contract bid opportunities exclusively for small businesses.
The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Sacramento District provides planning, engineering, project management, environmental restoration and construction services to military and civilian customers in parts of eight western states, including California, Nevada, Utah, Arizona, Colorado, Idaho, Oregon and Wyoming.
