Hematology Oncology Associates, P.C.
In the spring on 2011, Advanced Energy Systems installed a 56 kW solar power facility on the roof of Hematology Oncology Associates, P.C. in Medford, Oregon. The project featured Oregon sourced SolarWorld modules, and will produce and estimated 72,000 kWH of electricity annually. The lifetime savings over an estimated 35 year production cycle are 2,545,000 kWH. Hematology Oncology Associates, P.C. is committed to reducing it's carbon footprint, and this is one big step they have taken.

BrucePac Meat Product Designers - Woodburn, Oregon
BrucePac Meat Product Designers
joined the green power movement with the installation of an 83kW
ground-mounted solar array located at their plan in Woodburn, Oregon.
Designed and installed by Advanced Energy Systems, this array was
originally planned to be 367kW. Changes to the BETC (Oregon tax credit
program) forced a reduction in the array size. This new solar array was
constructed with SolarWold modules, Sun Storage custom racking, and PV
Powered inverters. Positive comments were received from the local
building inspector, and Energy Trust of Oregon personnel as to the
quality of the installation. The entire project was constructed by AES
employees with the exception of post ramming which was sub contracted.
All major components were sourced from Oregon suppliers and vendors. The
project employed as many as 8 skilled Electricians, and construction
persons during the 3 month install period.

Medford BLM 50kW Sun Station
In Medford Oregon, Advanced Energy Systems was selected to install a 50kW Solar Array on a covered parking structure. AES was the principal designer of both the Array and the Carport structure. Completed in the spring of 2011, this project showcases the versatility of our installation and design crew. We have added a slideshow of images for you to view. The project consisted of an Oregon manufactured SunStorage structure on which were mounted 204 SolarWorld 245 watt solar modules (Oregon Made). The modules were wired to a PV Powered 50kW Grid Tied inverter, which will feed the power generated back to the grid. This system is "Net Metered" meaning that it has the direct effect of reducing the power load of the Medford Inter agency Offices, located in southern Oregon. For more information on this or other solar projects by Advanced Energy Systems, please contact us via this website, or call 1-800-399-1569.
The Shaggy Dog Project
January 2012. The Shaggy Dog boarding facility located in Dallas, Oregon is now
producing electricity with their 13.16 kW solar electric system.
Designed and installed by Advanced Energy Systems, the 56 SolarWorld 235
watt modules will reduce the companies electricity bill, and save on
greenhouse gasses. Funding for the project came from the facility owner,
and from a utility incentive administered by the Energy Trust of
Oregon. There were no state business tax credits funding the project but working with AES to design the system, it still made financial sense with a relatively short payback period. Over the life of the system Shaggy Dog will save an estimated $112,000 in electricity costs, and offset the use of nearly 21,000 gallons of Gasoline. Additional benefits to the environment include offsetting 200 tons of CO2 or the equivalent of planting 4,750 trees.
The Shaggy Dog is promoting the Oregon sourced materials used in the construction of the facility. For more information on how to create a system that does not rely on state business tax credits, please contact Advanced Energy Systems. 1-800-399-1596 or use the contact us form on the right.
The Oregon Solar Highway Project
After nearly three years of planning, engineering and design, final completion of the Oregon Solar Highway project located at the Baldock Rest Area on northbound Interstate 5 was completed in late January 2012.
A joint effort between Advanced Energy Systems of Eugene, Aadland Evans Construction of Portland, Portland General Electric (PGE), the Oregon Department of Transportation (ODOT) and many others, this project is the largest installation of a solar facility on a public right of way in the United States. At 1.74 Megawatts, this facility is constructed on ground owned by ODOT and the power generated is being supplied to PGE.
This project covers nearly 7 acres of ground, uses 6,994 Oregon made SolarWorld 250W Solar Modules on an Oregon made Haticon ground mounted racking system. The modules are feeding inverters by Bend Oregon based PV Powered company (Advanced Energy).
Advanced Energy Systems was the solar designer and solar contractor responsible for the layout, installation and design of the solar facility. Along with strategic partners Christensen Electric, Aadland Evans, and Sunstall Inc, of California the installation came in ahead of schedule and is currently generating power.
Stoller Vineyards Tasting Room
Advanced Energy Systems completed a 77.172 kW solar electric system
for Stoller Tasting Room in 2012. The array consists of 236 SunPower
327 watt modules, and 11 SMA 7000 inverters. This solar electric
system will produce approximately 77,861 kWh in the first year of
operation, and more than 2,647,000 kWh over the course of its lifetime,
offsetting 36,000 tons of CO2 emissions.

Eugene Oregon Residence 2.8kW
One of our latest installations in Eugene Oregon, this 2.8kW residential solar installation consisted of 12 SolarWorld 235W modules on a roof mounted racking system. Enphase microinverters were also used. Completed in September 2011, the total system cost to the owner after incentives is estimated at less than $1500. Lifetime energy saving to the homeowner are estimated to be 90,135 kwh, with a dollar savings of over $12,000.
Our residential project manager, Justin Daily takes pride in his customer service and satisfaction. To date, AES has increased it's residential installations over 500% compared to 2010.
Eugene Oregon Residence 4.05kW
This project, completed in the summer or 2011 features SolarWorld Modules, Enphase micro-inverters with monitoring. Our clinets were so exited to share this project, they created their own brochure to pass on to neighbors and acquaintances. The homeowner was able to leverage the local utility incentives, the state tax incentives and the federal tax incentives for a system savings of nearly 80%. Couple that with a high quality installation and you have a 25+ year energy generation PV system that increases the home value and saves money.
