Our History

Transformations, Inc. specialized in developing and building sustainable Zero Energy Communities, building out residential Zero Energy projects for other developers, building Zero Energy Custom Homes, and installing Solar Electric Systems for existing homes and businesses. The company  served over a thousand customers since its start in the contracting field.

Carter and his team are beginning work on 3 different models of incorporating local food into communities in southern New Hampshire: a permaculture-inspired, 6-lot development; and a net positive energy Agrihood with diversified, carbon-positive farming and housing.
