The size of our projects range from 50 kilowatts to 5 Megawatts. We have completed projects on government military bases, chain grocery stores, universities, hospitals, retail stores, solar farms, parking decks, warehouses, and banks.

Going Green

So what does it mean to "go green" or use renewable energy?

Renewable energy is energy that comes from nature like sunlight, wind, rain, and geothermal heat. Here at Sylvester & Cockrum, we offer three ways to harness that energy by offering thermal solar, PV solar, and geothermal services.

Understanding the three types of renewable energy:

Thermal: Converting the sun’s energy to heat water

Geothermal: Energy from the sub-surface of either the ground (earth) or large body of water where the temperatures are fairly constant in order to power heating and cooling systems.

PV Solar: Converting the sun’s energy to produce electricity

Benefits of using solar and renewable energy:

  • A never ending resource
  • Non-polluting
  • Lower utility costs
  • Low maintenance with long life span
  • Financial incentives
  • Recognition by "Green Wave"
  • Building value increased
