Energy-efficiency and renewable materials are the cornerstone of ECOterra’s energy philosophy.

ECOterra Energy Consulting has extensive knowledge and expertise in the design, development, implementation and management of large and small renewable energy projects.

Our team has been in the renewable energy business for 40+ years and in 2004 we were the founders of Sunergy, Inc., a successful renewable energy integration and installation company. Sunergy was sold in 2009 so that we could broaden our scope of energy conservation into what we do today.

Solar Panels Renewable Energy


Our team has developed residential, commercial and utility-scale solar projects totaling over 30 MW’s. From self-funded private projects to school installations utilizing Power Purchase Agreements (PPAs), ECOterra’s EPC process manages every step of developing a renewables project including:

  • Land Acquistion

  • Entitlements

  • Municipal Bonding

  • Procurement

  • Financing

  • Project Management

  • Security & Monitoring

  • Operations & Maintenance

  • Monitoring & Maintenance

  • Facilities Management

Although solar photo voltaic and solar thermal solutions make up the more frequently used sources of renewable energy, our team has designed and constructed ground source heat pump systems and has helped develop co-generation facilities and critical power generation systems.

We have long-standing relationships with Tier I manufacturers that can deliver top-quality materials at competitive prices.

We are partners with a company that manufactures a passive thermal mass product that can reduce cooling loads by as much as 40% in multi-story office buildings through a Phase Change process. The product not only reduces kWh but shifts loads from peak demand to off peak times and as a result reducing demand charges by as much as 50%.
