About FreeRain

FreeRain operates as a private company based in Cary, North Carolina that provides turnkey solutions for rainwater harvesting. With a genuine concern for the serious state of the country’s water resources, FreeRain’s purpose is to preserve the precious water resources that God has provided for the health and welfare of future generations. FreeRain also hopes to inspire other creative solutions for conservation.

FreeRain provides solutions for the military, government, and owners of commercial property like offices, retail shops, and apartments. The original FreeRain solutions offered rainwater harvesting for single-family residences, and the company continues to serve that market today. FreeRain serves customers in North Carolina and recognizes near-term opportunities in both Georgia and South Carolina.

FreeRain Turnkey Solution

Strategic partnerships allow FreeRain to provide a complete turnkey solution. Design services are provided by our civil engineers. Gaines and Co, a large mid-Atlantic grading and utilities construction company with a 55-year history and a $40 million bonding capacity is utilized for large commercial installations. These relationships differentiate FreeRain from its competition by providing a complete solution rather than simply selling components.

The management team is led by Rex Bost, Founder and President, and Kevin Cochran, Director of Business Development. Bost, the visionary behind FreeRain, installed his first rainwater harvesting system in the 1980s. In addition to starting FreeRain several years ago, Bost has been a successful custom home builder in the Triangle since 1986. He was National and Local Director of the Raleigh/Wake County Home Builders Association and President of the Raleigh/Wake County Home Builders Association in 2002.

Cochran recently joined FreeRain from a six-year career in real estate development during which he managed several real estate development projects from conception through the entire construction, lease-up, and disposition process. His real estate investment finance and development experience comprises property valued over $250 million, representing over 2.5 million square feet. In the course, of his 17-year career, Cochran has also worked as a marketing product manager and technical sales manager in the software industry. Cochran has a B.S. from Vanderbilt University and an M.B.A. from U.N.C. Chapel Hill.

Troy Early, FreeRain’s Director of Field Operations, oversees system design. Early spent the first fifteen years of his career in the landscaping and irrigation system design and installation business. He has installed over thirty-five commercial pump stations for clients ranging from NC State University, Methodist College, several private schools and numerous golf courses. He has extensive expertise in pumping systems ranging from centrifugal pumps to smaller submersible pumps to large vertical turbines.
