Power to the People
Garver provides generation, transmission, and distribution services designed to client standards.

Many clients have system-specific methods, processes, components, and training already in place. When systems need updating or expanding, Garver develops designs that meet today's standards while satisfying each client's unique requirements.


Garver was able to prepare construction documents consistent with GRDA's preferred format. The design included a phased approach to construction that is vital to expansion of an in-service facility, and Garver completed the design in the time frame and format required.
