Rolling Hills Ranch Selects NRG Shift as Renewable Energy Consultant for Intermodal Rail Port

Share Article

Rolling Hills Ranch wishes to leverage alternative, renewable energy as a local source for energy production. To that end, they have brought on NRG Shift, a renewable energy consulting company. Their desire is that the entire project, from client homes to the proposed Navajo, AZ intermodal port and other aspects of commercial development be as "green" as possible. As a focal point, the project is expected to utilize large-scale roof-top solar arrays to generate power, offsetting their carbon imprint and increasing bottom-line profits.

If you think about it, there is something miraculous about taking the afternoon sun, redirecting or storing it's power and then piping it into the facility for lighting and other uses

Clearly positioning itself to take maximum advantage of President Obama's Energy and the Environment agenda, Rolling Hills Ranches has made the decision to utilize renewable energy consultant NRG Shift to maximize return on investment for this area of their projected project. Their goal is to create new jobs with their intermodal port project in the Navajo, AZ, continuing the development of land that already has an existing rail spur operated by the Salt River Project coal-fired plant which connects to BSNF's Railway Co's current lines. Rolling Hills Ranch intends to leverage alternative, renewable sources of power generation to do their part in the building a clean energy future.

"If you think about it, there is something miraculous about taking the afternoon sun, redirecting or storing it's power and then piping it into the facility for lighting and other uses," says Brandon O'Donnell, Managing Director of NRG Shift. "There are significant up-front costs for equipment, but the systems run virtually maintenance-free for decades using today's technologies, ensuring excellent return on investment."

In order to meet the President's call for 10 percent of electricity coming from renewable energy sources by 2012, Rolling Hills Ranch plans to add solar arrays to their intermodal port facility. Additionally, they hope to encourage current and future land owners to capitalize on energy efficiency and acquire new energy sources through solar arrays throughout the properties. As the point of their strategy for the alternative energy program, Rolling Hills Ranches has brought on NRG Shift as consultant in their plan to increase energy efficiency and leverage renewable forms of energy.
