Peak Shavings


Built by Coastal Structures for the City of Georgetown, the $5 million peak shaving project has improved the electric infrastructure and reduced energy costs for customers in Georgetown.
Peak shaving is a technique used to decrease electrical power consumption during the time of day when energy is most used. The peak shaving project included construction of a building at the city’s wastewater facility to house two large, diesel-powered generators that will be used to generate power during high demand times for electricity.
Coastal Structures completed the construction of the generation’s pre-fabricated metal building, site work associated with construction, installation of the owner-furnished Diesel Electric System equipment and provided and installed all associated plant systems including diesel fuel system, diesel exhaust fluid system, electrical systems, fire suppression system and compressed air system. The project was designed by Utility Technology Engineers.
