Alternative Resource is a group of 3 companies (AR3) with a team of energy infrastructure developers with over 60 years of combined experience in the energy sector. We intend to build the next generation of decentralized power plants combining renewable resources + natural gas co-generation, large scale battery storage and smart grid technologies to provide stable, low cost renewable solutions anywhere in the world. We are also building an ultra-low emissions refinery for the conversion of the waste gas “condensate” into a useable fuel and using the byproduct from this operation to run an additional electricity generation equipment to produce electricity.


Starting with a 20-year career as a successful contractor, working for very high profile clients in California, Mr. McDonnell became involved in large scale renewable energy in 2010.

This project was sold in the development stages to a San Francisco group. Mr. McDonnell started the firm Alternative Resource Group to focus on the development of renewable energy power plants and delivery applications in the U.S., and Solar + Storage power plants in deregulated countries, starting in Mexico.
