Moving power where it’s needed – our capabilities help provide a safer and more reliable electric grid.
In 2015, RES acquired System 3, a specialty HV electrical contractor, and established its self-performing T&D construction division. Our T&D team continues to support our clients with the same quality service of System 3, backed by the in-house engineering, HSQE (Health, Safety, Quality and Environmental) program, and project management experience of RES.
RES T&D has built over:
of distribution circuits
Safety is our number one priority, whether on construction sites or in the office. We use behavior-based safety methods to supplement our safety management system and to enhance the safety culture among our work crews and subcontractors. Safety strategies include:
RES has constructed over 1,000 miles of transmission lines (up to 345kV), with EPC capabilities and engineering support available. Our transmission scope includes:
Our consistent, long-term substation crews have deep expertise in the utility and renewables spaces and our in-house engineering and procurement teams enable us to be a valuable EPC partner to our customers. With over 100 substations built to date up to 345kV, our substation scope includes:
Our experienced distribution team works on underground and overhead lines from 12kV to 69kV. Our capabilities include new construction, reconductoring, storm hardening, emergency restoration, and maintenance/rebuild. Our crews can perform work on energized lines 69kV and below.
RES can respond quickly to assist clients during storm and emergency conditions. Our crews have experience responding to ice, tropical, and seasonal storms and wildfire restoration.

Strategic purchase will allow RES to expand transmission business, accelerate growth.
Broomfield, CO—Renewable Energy Systems Ltd. (RES), a leader in the origination, development, engineering, construction, and operation of wind, solar, transmission, and energy storage projects across the globe, is pleased to announce the acquisition of substantially all of the assets, personnel, and equipment of System 3 Inc. (System 3), a specialty electrical contractor based in Sacramento, CA. System 3 has deep expertise and experience in constructing substation, transmission line, and collection system work in the wind and solar energy market as well as other utility and general commercial and industrial businesses. The transaction, which closed on November 2, 2015, will enable RES to accelerate growth, complete its transition towards a fully integrated self-perform contractor as well as help to diversify its services further into utility infrastructure and transmission construction.
The addition will improve RES’ competitiveness in wind, solar and storage construction, bolstering the company’s ability to engineer, procure and construct transmission lines and substations. RES’ customer pool will diversify by reaching further into general industrial and commercial sectors.
“With this acquisition, RES will be able to leverage System 3’s expertise in the renewable energy space to grow market share and provide our clients with more solutions under one company,” stated Glen Davis, Chief Executive Officer of RES in the Americas. “We will be embracing the best capabilities of both organizations.”
“We are excited to be joining RES and feel this transaction will provide a stronger balance sheet to allow for the expansion of our transmission business,” said Tom Wilbert, CEO, System 3 Inc. “RES is highly regarded in the renewable energy sector and with the benefit of their more than 30 years of experience, we will be able to focus on reaching the next level of growth that will benefit our employees, customers, and partners.”

RES Offshore has designed a game-changing new rating method for export power cables which was announced in a poster presentation at EWEA 2015. The design, developed by RES Offshore and the University of Southampton, is set to vastly improve power transportation from offshore wind farms, with currents improved by up to 22%.
The new cable rating method has moved away from the traditional power transmission models, which presume that maximum power will be transmitted through the cables at all times. RES Offshore has applied its statistical understanding of wind speed distribution and power flow variation, and incorporated this into the thermal design of the cable, allowing for peaks and troughs in current transmission. Where the traditional model is conservative, due to the expectation that enough copper is required to support constant operation at full capacity, RES’ revised method requires less copper to be used by taking advantage of the cooling down periods that come with decreased wind speed.
Simon Catmull, Project Engineer at RES Offshore, commented;
“We know that developers are looking to reduce the cost of offshore wind farm development and our new power exporting cable design can enable this. These new cables can be used for Round Three projects and offer a significant improvement in current delivery over the traditional method. We think this innovation could be a real revelation for offshore power transmission.”
Chris Morgan, CEO RES Offshore said:
"This cabling shows that RES Offshore is at the forefront of offshore wind innovation and leading the industry in embracing lower costs and efficient thinking. A great advantage is that this offering can be designed for specific wind farms, taking location, turbine model/number and wind speed variation into account. I’m thrilled that we are launching this innovation at such a key industry event as EWEA and to have the opportunity to showcase our expertise to peers."
