Renewable Energy

Hawkeye Energy Solutions provides Photovoltaic, Distributed Wind and Geothermal Heat Pump renewable, clean energy systems. Renewable energy sources are the ultimate Clean Energy. Clean Energy’ sources are energy sources that produce significantly reduced (or no) greenhouse gases.  'Start to Finish' Hawkeye guides customers through the entire process, from system design to final installation.  With Hawkeye Project Financing, the entire process is made easy.

Photovoltaic Systems

Photovoltaic cells are electrical devices that convert the energy of the sun directly into electricity. Photovoltaic (solar) systems have never been more efficient or more cost-effective.  Lower photovoltaic system installed costs have made solar power very affordable for commercial, industrial and institutional facilities. Photovoltaic systems are argueably the most environmentally (clean) energy technologies available. In many cases, photovoltaic systems can be combined with other renewable energy (such as Distributed Wind) to optimize the overall site savings, efficiency and sustainability Hawkeye guides customers through the entire process, from system design to system implementation and with Hawkeye-ESPC, there is no capital budget request required to make the upgrades. The Federal Tax Credit directly reduces the owners taxes. This is like a tax gift card (not a tax deduction).

  • 30% Federal Tax Credit (Reduces to 10% on January 1, 2017)
  • Cost-effective
  • Easily roof mounted
  • Modular and flexible sizes
  • Green & Clean
  • Hawkeye-ESPC (No capital budget request)

Photovoltaic (PV) systems are already an important part of our daily lives. Simple PV systems provide power for small consumer items such as calculators and wristwatches. More complicated systems provide power for communications satellites, water pumps and the lights, appliances and machines in some homes and workplaces. Many road and traffic signs also are now powered by PV. In many cases, PV power is the least expensive form of electricity for these tasks.

Distributed Wind Systems

Distributed wind energy systems offer reliable electricity generation in a wide variety of settings, including municipalities, schools and manufacturing facilities. Smaller wind turbines (commonly up to 50 kW) provide energy independence for small or remote applications supplying local power or even local grid support. Larger wind turbines (> 500 kW and into the megawatts) provide clean power for municipal buildings, university campuses, manufacturing facilities and other large energy users. Hawkeye guides customers through the entire process, from system design to system implementation and with Hawkeye-ESPC, there is no capital budget request required to make the upgrades.

  • Distributed wind Investment Tax Credit (ITC)
  • Power (Batteries, lighting, equipment)
  • Local grid support
  • University Campuses
  • Manufacturers
  • Green & Clean
  • Hawkeye-ESPC (No capital budget request)

 

The U.S. Department of Energy’s, Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE) define distributed wind in terms of project location relative to end-use and power-distribution infrastructure, rather than by technology size or project size. Wind systems are characterized based on their proximity to their-end use or interconnection to a local grid.

  • Small wind turbines - Rotor swept area up to 200 square meters (approximately 50 kW)
  • Medium wind turbines - Rotor swept area between 201-1,000 square meters (approximately 50 kW up to approximately 500 kW)
  • Large wind turbines – Rotor swept area greater than 1,000  square meters (> 500 kW)

Geothermal Heat Pump Systems

Harness the power of the earth. Geothermal systems use the earth as a heat source in the winter and as a heat sink (cooling) in the summer. Geothermal systems tap into this renewable, sustainable fuel source to efficiently heat and cool buildings and domestic water.  Geothermal systems take advantage of the moderate temperatures in the ground to boost efficiency and reduce the operational costs of heating and cooling systems. Geothermal heat pumps are able to heat, cool and supply buildings with hot water. In the winter, the heat pump removes heat from the ground and pumps it indoors. In the summer, the process is reversed, and the heat pump removes heat from the indoors and rejects it into the ground.  In many cases, geothermal heat pump systems can be combined with other renewable energy (such as Photovoltaic and Distributed Wind) to optimize the overall site savings, efficiency and sustainability. Hawkeye guides customers through the entire process, from system design to system implementation and with Hawkeye-ESPC, there is no capital budget request required to make the upgrades.

  • Savings up to 75% on HVAC operating costs
  • Extended HVAC equipment life
  • ROI 5-10 years
  • Safe and reliable
  • Green & Clean
  • Hawkeye-ESPC (No capital budget request)

 

Geothermal heat pumps use the constant temperature of the earth as an exchange medium for heat. Although many parts of the country experience seasonal temperature extremes—from scorching heat in the summer to sub-zero cold in the winter—the ground a few feet below the earth's surface remains at a relatively constant temperature.  Depending on the latitude, ground temperatures range from 45°F (7°C) to 75°F (21°C). So, like a cave's, the ground's temperature is warmer than the air above it during winter and cooler than the air above it in summer.
