Mare Island PV Solar Project

TEC installed solar panels at th Veterans Affairs Out-Patient Clinic (VAOC) in Mare Island, CA.  TEC worked with the General Contractor as an SDVOSB subcontractor to install a 109KW photo-voltaic solar system on the VAOC rooftop.  2011-2013.  Below you see the panels on the roof and the Satcon weather station that were installed.

Surveys for Boat Usage and Boating Safety

From 2001 to 2009 TEC has monitored boat usage on Minnesota lakes for the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources.  In 2008 TEC surveyed boaters about PFD (personal floatation device) usage. We also collected water temperature, surface conditions, and weather information, automatically using volunteers and a website.

Study of Automated Salt Spreading Technology

In May 2104, Thompson Engineering finished a project to understand the status of automated spreader technology. Thompson Engineering developed several guides to help agencies assess the levels of automation available and how best to implement the latest technology into DOT fleets. The Final Report, the Guides, and the Final Presentation are available here.

The webinar presenting the results of this research project to Clear Roads. In this 49-minute presentation, project researcher Todd Thompson and Greg Thompson outline the study’s findings and answer questions from the Clear Roads project panel. The video of the webinar can be viewed by clicking here.
