Projects

Below is a sample list of projects HES has performed the primary engineering and project management for.

Nepal Offgrid Solar+Storage

HES was hired by Empowered By Light to design, engineer, and oversee the installation of several small off-grid solar+storage systems in the remote Nepali Chitwan National Forest. These systems provide 24hr electricity and light to tourist towers and military outposts. The electricity allows the local community to host tourists in the jungle overnight (and greatly increases Read more about Nepal Offgrid Solar+Storage[…]

Matthew Turner Marine Electrical Design

The Matthew Turner is a 135′ wooden sailing ship being built in Sausalito, CA. A first of its kind, the Matthew Turner uses dual BAE Systems hybrid propulsion systems paired with lithium ion batteries to drive the ship primarily on electricity rather than diesel when motoring in and out of port. The propulsion system is Read more about Matthew Turner Marine Electrical Design[…]
