About Us: 

Acterra provides project management, development, and construction services for wind energy, renewable energy, biofuels, and fuels projects. We have been in business since 1958 and currently maintain offices throughout the Midwest.

Acterra’s project development services cover all phases of renewable energy development. We execute projects from small one time assignments to turn-key project development and all the way to continuous project portfolio development services that are based on long-term partnerships rather than single assignments.

Our Project Development Services include the full range of support services needed to identify, evaluate, select, and implement specific renewable energy projects. We typically work as an extension of a client’s organization and provide the support services needed for each individual project. From concept to construction, we work with clients to develop renewable energy projects, while maximizing the return to our client.
