We have training and certifications through Climate Master, Trane, & Water Furnace in well-field installation, design, and start-up of geothermal systems.
In 2013, due to high demand, he added water well drilling to the business. McPike Water Wells quickly became an important part of the company and necessitated an additional rig as well as 2 more licensed drillers. As an expert in both geothermal and water wells, he is often called on to talk to businesses, companies, and at conventions. In 2021, William became president of the Texas Groundwater Association and still continues to serve on Texas and National Groundwater Association committees. He has talked to congressional committees and congressmen in Washington D.C. and Austin promoting Geothermal Drilling as well as water well issues across the United States.
