W.R. Henderson Construction has been building conventional and renewable energy projects for the past two and a half decades for military, industrial and commercial customers. Projects include auxiliary power systems, solar photovoltaic systems for the U.S. Government beginning in the 1990’s, power generation, battery and other backup power systems for industrial, commercial and military clients.
In the mid to late 2000’s, W.R. Henderson Construction started focusing on designing, building, owing and managing its own projects, the Company also began leveraging its extensive construction experience into the energy sector.
WRH Power Systems, LLC was formed to provide design, construction, financing, leasing and operation and maintenance options to a broader customer base for conventional and renewable power generation projects, including solar photovoltaics, landfill gas, biogas, battery storage and other integrated renewable-based power projects.
As we move away from pure fossil fuel power generation to lower energy density renewable power sources, battery storage, renewable energy blending with thermal power generation, other innovative production and transmission and distribution practices are required.
WRH Power Systems, LLC, is dedicated to the research, development and commercialization of conventional and renewable energy technologies, including automated asset control systems, project simulation, design, and project enhancement for existing assets. WRH Power Systems addresses a growing global demand for distributed power using islanded and microgrid power systems to increase reliability and lower operating costs.
W.R. Henderson Construction, Inc. has had a strong presence in government and military projects since the late 1970’s, with an exceptional understanding and compliance history with applicable FAR provisions.

W.R. Henderson Construction, Inc. has performed work for mining companies over the past thirty years and currently owns aggregate and mineral properties in the Western United States. WRH Nevada Properties, LLC, an affiliate company of W.R. Henderson Construction, owns approximately 825,000 acres of deeded mineral properties within thirteen counties of Western Montana. Western Montana regional features include apparent deep-seated continental-scale structures, such as the Lincoln Volcanic Center and the Lewis and Clark Lineament, controlling precious and base-metal mineralization across wide areas of the WRH Nevada Properties, LLC holdings.
A diverse range of mineral deposit types have been recognized throughout western Montana including: (1) porphyry-style, precious metal-rich, copper-molybdenum deposits and associated skarns,(2) large tonnage gold-silver deposits recoverable via gravity and/or bioleaching methods, (3) narrow, high grade gold-silver vein/lode deposits, (4) polymetallic vein/lode deposits, replacement deposits, sediment-hosted copper-silver stratabound SHC/Spar Lake type deposits, and Sedimentary exhalative deposits. Also, excellent potential exists for discovery of economic deposits of industrial minerals and metals such as barite, garnet, cobalt and rare earth elements.
WRH Nevada Properties, LLC has digitally compiled the exploration records and assembled an interactive GIS Map of the 825,000 acres of deeded mineral properties and nearby lands. The digital database includes approximately 475 known mine sites and prospects, and currently consists of over 350 GB of digital data. The interactive GIS and digital database became fully operational in 2017. The geologic database includes digital reproductions of all pertinent exploration reports, maps, field notes and sketches, drill logs, assays, and other technical data from mineral properties and regional exploration programs within and adjacent to the 825,000 acres of deeded mineral rights. The WRH Nevada Properties’ database consists predominantly of internal company reports and data, of which a substantial portion is owned exclusively by WRH Nevada Properties, LLC and is not available in the public domain.
