  16. 16. Energy & Sustainability Program 16GREEN CAREERS, 9/29/16 Solar PV Maintenance Contract • OSD and DCAMM have made available the of a Statewide Contract for Solar Inspection Services, FAC91. • Procure the inspection of your Solar arrays • Two different levels of service by State vetted industry experts. o 1st level is a visual inspection of the array, condition of the array report, performance of the inverters and entire array as they compare with PVWATTs or PVSYST,. o 2nd higher level, inspection is to determine not only the above parameters, but also performance of the array on the string level. • The FAC91 Contract User’s Guide available on • Feel free to contact Jim Freeley (james.a.freeley@MassMail.State.MA.US) or Dean Arnold (dean.arnold@MassMail.State.MA.US) for more information. New Fish & Wildlife Building is 2nd LEED Platinum Building in state. The 250 kW array would benefit from inspections
  17. 17. Energy & Sustainability Program 17GREEN CAREERS, 9/29/16 Green Career Opportunities 1. Commissioning & Retro-Cx 2.

  18. 18. Energy & Sustainability Program 18GREEN CAREERS, 9/29/16 Approach to Filling Career Opportunities 1. Outreach: Adapt outreach campaigns about job/career opportunities to targeted communities. a. Get them young! Expose young people to areas of future jobs at an early age. b. Inform/direct them to training programs. c. Use people in the right trades/professions as mentors. 2. Training: Use existing internship, pre-apprenticeship, apprenticeship and training programs. a. Connect with vocational/technical schools and Community Colleges. b. Provide training to keep people up-to-date. Not everyone is up on new technology. c. Secure and maintain Building Operator Certification (BOC.) 3. Retraining: a. Retraining Facility management staff, and building occupants. b. Focus targeted attention on adult learners and people re-training from previous careers. c. Integrate maintenance standards and sustainability practices
  19. 19. Energy & Sustainability Program 19GREEN CAREERS, 9/29/16 Moving Forward: Priority Initiatives What Why How Power Purchase Agreements (PPAs) Leverage private capital and expertise to increase renewables. Change existing law to support PPA’s. Bill #S1635 would allow state agencies to have concurrent lease with PPA. Resiliency Design for a shorter recovery from impacts of storms and extreme weather events. Support or lead development of requirements for state facilities, use energy and asset stewardship projects to leverage funds. Operations and Maintenance Enhance facilities by maintaining what we have. Support CoFFEE legislation, creating expendable trust to receive payments for loans New Executive Orders, Initiatives and Legislation Need to update requirements to improve facilities, save money, and provide clarity. Support our partners, and the administration’s policies and programs.
