Project Description

The Portland Habilitation Center (PHC) is a nonprofit whose mission is to assist individuals with disabilities throughout Oregon and Washington by providing job training and skill development so they may obtain and maintain meaningful work. PHC delivers contracted services in custodial, landscaping, light industry and administrative services, and currently trains and employs approximately 1,000 people with disabilities. PHC is hosting an 870 kW system atop its new 110,000 sq. ft. facility in Northeast Portland. The renewable energy generated from the system will power expansion of PHC’s in-house manufacturing, assembly, order fulfillment, courier and warehousing services. The solar PV installation will eventually save PHC nearly $75,000 in annual energy costs. United Fund Advisors structured and closed the transaction, utilizing the Federal Renewable Energy Investment Tax Credit as the primary tool to help finance the project.
