The Inflation Reduction Act creates significant opportunities for building owners to ready their operations for long-term resiliency and eliminate deferred maintenance, realize cost savings, accelerate decarbonization and reach equitable outcomes for generations to come.

McKinstry and the Colorado School of Mines have been partners for over 14 years, with goals to increase sustainability across campus and support the next generation of engineers who attend the school.

McKinstry is completing the construction of seven site solar project – six arrays are on campus buildings and one array is on a parking lot canopy. The project will offset 6-8% of overall campus energy use, which is about 2 million kilowatt hours of energy per year across a 1.5-megawatt site.

This project was underway when the ITC became available. McKinstry was able to support Colorado School of Mines in pursuing direct pay under the ITC even as the project was in progress. This opportunity created more capital for the school to be able to invest into future sustainability endeavors and their students.
