McEvoy Ranch Wind Turbine Project
Objective: Install a 225 kW Norwin wind turbine at McEvoy Ranch, a commercial olive farm and processing facility near Petaluma in Marin County.
Result: Sage oversaw the design, procurement and installation of a 225 kW turbine that now provides approximately 2/3 of the ranch’s power. Sage also recommended and helped implement efficiency measures and solar thermal collectors to address the ranch’s remaining power requirements. The McEvoy wind turbine is the first wind project completed with PG&E SGIP incentives and is the largest privately owned agricultural windmill in California. The project received Assemblyman Jarred Huffman's Sustainable North Bay award.
Services: Sage performed energy evaluation and design feasibility, site data acquisition, resource modeling, financial and performance modeling, permitting, vendor and equipment selection, biological, acoustic and avian studies, commissioning oversight, and post installation performance monitoring. Sage also provided overall project management services working closely with construction manager Morita Construction.
Feedback: "McEvoy had the good fortune to work with Sage Renewables on our wind energy and solar thermal projects. From needs assessment to project design, turbine selection, project implementation and post-installation fine tuning, Sage provided impeccable, timely service. We’re happy to recommend Sage!" -- Jeff Creque, McEvoy Ranch Manager
