About Us: 

OUR MISSION is to design and build long-lasting, efficient buildings and energy generation systems that conserve natural resources and reduce pollution. As a result, we are creating good returns on investments that build a more environmentally sustainable economy.

Thank you for your interest in environmentally responsible construction. Through our WERC, you can have more efficient buildings, better building products, better building controls and installations of wind, solar and geothermal systems. Our customers save thousands of dollars on building operations each year, enjoy greater comfort, safety and value, all the while enjoying the satisfaction of doing the right thing for the environment too.

We also practice what we preach in our own operations. Most of our vehicles, equipment and machines run on diesel fuels, which are less polluting than gasoline. In addition, we have added technologies to allow our vehicles to run on bio-fuels such as vegetable oils and Used Fryer Oil (UFO Fuel™) from restaurants. Click here for more information. Our energy efficient and beautiful 10,000 square foot offices and shop buildings (Eco-Domes) are heated and cooled with geothermal energy. Most of our electricity is generated on site from our own wind turbines and solar photo-voltaic panels in a net-metering situation with the local power company.
