More About Renewable Energy Works!

Renewable Energy Works! was founded by Bill LaBine in 1992 to bring renewable energy systems to western New York. The main thrust of the business was selling and installing solar electric (photovoltaic) and wind electric systems. Bill also serviced and installed solar thermal systems (solar hot water, solar hot air). Bill also contracted as an Energy Specialist for Xerox's Office of Energy Management for several years. Major accomplishments include the first utility intertied (net-metered) solar electric systems in both RG&E and Niagara Mohawk territories. Bill was very active in the New York Solar Energy Industry Association, serving on the board and as vice-president for several years.

Renewable Energy Works! has evolved into the consulting firm that it is today - working to promote renewable energy in the broader framework of Green Homes. REW! is working with home owners, architects and builders to make Green Homes the standard practice rather than the exception.

Bill also works for NYSERDA as an Energy Educator and for Airtight Services as an Energy Rater. Bill has also taught at Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT) as an adjunct professor teaching Energy and the Environment.
