A Highly Experienced and Well Versed Team
Unison Energy’s EPC (Engineering, Procurement, Construction) team has been responsible for the design, build, and commissioning of over 15.4 GW of distributed generation across 350 projects (CHP, Fuel Cell, Biogas, Solar; <50MW) and 14.0GW of utility-scale generating plants over 22 projects. Construction duration is typically 12 to 15 months from ESA signing; all permitting – including Air and Environmental, utility interconnects, and local building authority – is handled by Unison. After system startup, the site is transitioned to our System Monitoring, Optimization, and Operations team.
Unison Energy fosters a “Safety First, Safety Always” culture throughout construction, installation, and commissioning. That standard applies to the third-party construction firms we hire to perform civil, structural, mechanical, and electrical construction and installation services. We are committed to ensuring that these contractors adhere to industrial best practices and trendsetting safety standards, incorporating both host facility and Unison Energy safety policies.

Services with Unison Energy
Unison Energy takes pride in our ability to accurately assess the viability of microgrid configuration options for our customers. We use a proprietary energy model and database of utility tariffs which aggregate a large amount of data: hourly interval data, commodity costs, delivery costs, existing tariff structures, cogeneration tariffs, net metering demand charges, thermal logs, and many others, in order to optimize sizing of generators and storage resources for maximum economic cost-effectiveness for the client. Additionally, energy conservation measures, such as solar hot water heating or efficient LED lighting, are also considered for inclusion in the microgrid based upon their cost-effectiveness. Finally, Unison also carefully considers operational requirements, such as efficiency threshold requirements from utilities for CHP to qualify for incentives, and net metering limits in order to maximize rebate rewards for our projects.
