<< Renewable Energy

Sutterby Construction Services (SCS) believes that the use of renewable energy resources for our everyday needs is essential for a healthy and prosperous future. Advancements in renewable energy generation technology have made renewable energy a more cost effective, user friendly alternative energy resource. Our mission is to provide integrated renewable power generation services to our clients that are innovative and rewarding.

We provide renewable power generation turn-key services for off-grid or limited grid access clients and those who desire to be a part of the long-term solution. Our renewable energy team offers the following turn-key renewable energy solutions:

  • Hydro

  • Wind

  • Solar (Photovoltaic)

  • Hybrid combinations

    We also support sustainable energy solutions such as solar hot water and geothermal heat, or combinations to lower your energy use requirements. Our team is focused on providing our clients the satisfaction of owning an integrated renewable power generation system that is both environmentally and financially beneficial.


  • << Hydro

    If you have a continuous supply of flowing water on your property, then you may want to consider hydro electricity production. With a continuous source of flowing water, power can be generated 24 hours per day, seven days per week. Sources of flowing water can range from an artesian well to a stream. Waste water can also be a source of flowing water. The important principal to remember is that flowing water has kinetic energy which can be changed into clean electrical power. Micro hydro power generation systems can be the least expensive form of power generation.

    << Wind

    Wind is another source of renewable energy that most sites have available to them. Wind has kinetic energy similar to flowing water but is less dense and more variable. As a result, you need an annual average wind speed of 11 MPH or more for a cost effective system. Today’s wind turbine technology has made this renewable power generation alternative cost effective. There are a variety of wind turbines on the market today and it is important to understand how they function and what their warranties and maintenance requirements are.

    << Solar (Photovoltaic)

    Solar power is normally abundant in most regions of the country making it more reliable than wind. Photovoltaic power generation systems also have fewer moving parts making it easier to maintain. With a modular system, you can add more panels to meet your future energy needs.

    << Hybrid Combinations

    Every site is different. A site may have a lot of wind and limited hours of sunlight or a flowing stream with many hours of sunlight. Hybrid combinations of renewable power generation systems are comprised of a combination of renewable energy resources that are integrated to provide the greatest energy value from your site conditions. Our renewable energy team will assess your site to determine the most cost effective renewable energy alternative for your energy requirements.
