Posted by: David Schwedel

A Texas project developer has created an affiliate company that will expand into Alabama and other states.

Encina Development Group LLC formed Encina Renewables LLC with plans to enter the Alabama market. It has several project site locations in mind but has not yet formally decided on any.

The company also plans to expand into Florida, Georgia, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina and Texas. The company will be headquartered in Houston.

The new affiliated company will consolidate Encina’s activities in the renewables sector. This will enable it to get closer to fulfilling its goal of becoming a carbon neutral enterprise.

“We have always strived to seek out technologies which would enable our future operations to be as close to carbon neutral as possible while maintaining our position of being good stewards of the lands and environment...,” said David A. Schwedel, founder and executive director of Encina, in a release. “Our entry into the renewables sector will coincide with licensing technologies, forming joint ventures, and working with our end customers to help them achieve their environmental carbon footprint reduction targets as well.”

Based in Woodlands, Texas, Encina Development Group designs, constructs and operates chemical and renewable facilities.
