Working with architect Antone Predock, SDA engineered the PV systems on City Hall in Austin, Texas.


Create a Legacy

Environmental Protection Agency Lav
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency chooses SDA engineering for PV-powered sunshades on its New England lab.

Let your building project stand as a model of thoughtful design and prudent investment.

SDA works with government agencies and non-profit institutions to:
  • clarify goals and objectives for renewable-energy projects
  • minimize risks while deploying state-of-the-art technology
  • promote the benefits of energy efficiency through public information campaigns.

Shape Public Policy

Union of Concerned Scientists
The Union of Concerned Scientists follows philosophy with action using PV technology at their headquarters in Cambridge, Massachusetts.

Non-governmental organizations can influence future development by demonstrating a commitment to energy-conscious design in their own building projects.

SDA's depth of experience in renewables will enable you to
  • build your reputation for environmentally responsible public stewardship.
  • enlighten constituents and other stakeholders as to the benefits of renewable energy applications.

Leverage Incentives and Grants

Sacramento Municipal Utility District
SDA's expert installers at work on the Adirondack Museum rooftop array of solar panels.

Incentives for renewable energy projects are making an impact on public and private development.

SDA can help integrate energy efficiency into your project by making optimal use of local, utility, state and federal incentive programs.
