Our Story

Helping You Soar

We understand that your resources are best spent growing your business. Our team helps you uncover and implement energy efficiencies and access reliable, affordable, and clean energy. We’re here to save you money and achieve your environmental goals.

Former Marine and OID combat-veteran Chris Rawlings founded the company that became Bowerbird Energy Contractors in 2014. His experience in the military and with mission-focused contractors inspired him to find effective ways of leveraging engineering and construction skillsets to conserve resources. The Bowerbird Energy team brings a wealth of knowledge across the sectors of energy, technology, utilities and construction. We take a personal approach with attention to service, flexibility and details. Bowerbird Energy has helped more than 350 clients across the country, including government agencies, developers, asset managers, and small businesses.

  • Our primary focus is reducing utility expenses and environmental impact, by designing and implementing energy management solutions that generate the quickest return on investment for our customers.
