Power Generation & Energy

The power industry is always advancing. At Commonwealth, we’re determined to advance accordingly. We listen to our clients, study the various dimensions of their challenges, and provide customized solutions. Financial criteria, design protocols, and company standards are all taken into consideration.

The projects of our Power Generation and Energy team include Owner’s Engineering, plant studies and design, cogeneration, and renewable power and improvement. Clients include major utilities, independent power producers, municipalities, heavy industrial, institutions, universities, and healthcare organizations. Challenges include upgrades and retrofits, compliance, retiring or decommissioning of assets, and building and operation of new assets.

From simple to combined cycle; studying the feasibility of biomass or hydropower; replacing a heat recovery boiler, combustion turbine selection, or air quality control strategies; we enjoy challenges that make our clients more powerful.


Investor-owned utilities, independent power producers, and utility cooperatives face unforeseen disruptions and challenges. Costs and expenses need to be controlled. For many challenges – anticipated grid upgrade expenditures, distributed generation, demand-side management technologies, low-cost natural gas, selective government incentives, economic contraction, terrorism threats – we can act as Owner’s Engineer, or as your project management team, design team, staff trainer, or singular study professional.


Colleges, universities, schools, research facilities, laboratories, hospitals, governmental agencies: We help keep the power going, residents warm, classrooms illuminated and operating rooms operating.


Manufacturing, steel, chemical, food, agribusiness, mining, pharmaceuticals: Whether power is provided or produced in-house, we can help with facility audits, design or modification services, procurement and materials control services, commissioning services, and more.


Our work includes solutions for limited project resources and restrictive budgets.

Our unique Emergency Services Agreement covers nearly all storm-related issues so your residents can enjoy uninterrupted power.
