Alternative & Renewable Energy
We are an engineering, design and installation company specializing in Solar and Wind energy applications for both Grid Tie and off Grid clients. We are the North American importer, service center and warranty facility for WHisper wind turbines.
We engineer, design and install approximately 20 to 30 solar projects a year and service 100 to 200 existing clients. We also rebuild Whisper and Windistar wind turbines for Wish Energy, an Indian company that purchased the Southwest Windpower turbine line in 2013. We also design and build turbine controllers and control systems for special projects involving wind turbines. We have designed and installed specialty RE systems for situations that require more engineering than the average contractor is able to provide. We specialize in off grid and battery based systems in remote locations. We also build portable solar and wind systems for remote locations where energy is required for applications such as telecom towers,
We also have a Renewable Energy Equipment sales business which caters to off grid end users and dealers who need not only RE equipment but engineering design and equipment specification as well for their applications.
We are a distributor or dealer for several Renewable Energy Equipment Suppliers and our value add is engineering and design assistance to the end user or neophyte Renewable Energy Installer.
We would like to expand our distribution and sales business and use our wind turbine expertise to develop a new wind turbine in the 2kw range. We would also like to start a nationwide sales activity to increase sales of wind turbines in the North American market.

I have a BSEE from University of Illinois 1979. I worked as a design engineer for TRW in their Space Systems Group Control Systems Laboratory from 1979 to 1986. I worked as a software engineer for Allied Signal Pneumatic systems division from 1986 to 1988 and as the Manager of the PSD Laboratory test equipment group from 1988 to 1994. I was responsible for a several million dollar annual budget and approximately 40 engineers and technicians. After 1994 I started an insurance agency and grew it to a $3,000,000 a year business. In 2009 I started McDOnald Solar and wind Inc. to engineer, design and install Renewable Energy Systems in the Central and Southern Colorado area. We have installed systems in Texas, Oregon, Nebraska and Colorado and have consulted with end users and installers throughout the USA and Canada and have sold equipment all over the world. We are poised for significant growth if we can add to our staff and focus on a couple of key areas.
