Hydroelectric power, depending on rainfall, represents between 6 and 18 percent of California’s energy use, according to the California Energy Commission. As the demand for renewable energy production rises, owners and operators of California’s 287 hydro facilities will face additional operational and regulatory challenges in the coming years. Fortunately, the electrical engineers at SAGE have nearly 50 years of combined experience working with hydropower systems both large and small.
Exemplifying the electrical engineering and design experience required to support efficient hydro operations, our electrical engineers are proficient in hydroelectric power plant design and upgrades, protective relaying, unit control systems, field testing and startup engineering services, and NERC compliance for electrical system requirements.
Solar energy is the cleanest and most abundant renewable energy source available. Businesses and industry use solar to diversify their energy sources, improve efficiency, and reduce costs. From design and upgrades to field testing and startup services, our team of electrical engineers has the specialty experience required to support your solar power project needs.
