Bill started his career in construction early in life as both an electrician and master carpenter. The experience he gained from forty years of this work led to his decision to become a part of the solar industry in 2003 with his first installation job. This job was the first grid-tiered residential solar system installed in the city of Rolling Hills.  His goal was then, and always is to provide quality craftsmanship and hands-on attention to every project. In the years since, Bill has installed more than 80 residential systems for clients across the South Bay.

Risë met Bill in 1997 on a C.W. Howe jobsite where she was hired by the homeowner to hand paint ceramic tile for various projects on the inside and outside of the home. She had been custom hand painting ceramic tiles since 1986 and looking forward to the artistic freedom this project was offering. After collaborating on this project, Risë and Bill could see they had the same respect for the trade and passion for the quality in their own work. They married in 1998. Bill & Risë have two grown daughters.
