Like many who came to the field more than 15 years ago, Rich was drawn by the promise of cleaner energy and the possibility of America freeing itself from its reliance on foreign energy.


Today, as President of Solar4U, he helps individuals, families, businesses, and condo associations assert their own energy independence while simultaneously reducing greenhouse gasses and saving money.

In addition to being a licensed, bonded, and insured solar contractor, Rich is the patent-holding inventor of a new collector that promises to reduce the cost of solar power even further.

He has also managed Research and Development projects to test new solar materials for leading companies such as DuPont.

Since earning his degree in Applied Sciences from Alfred University, Rich has been certified by the State of Florida as a Commercial Solar Contractor and has earned additional certifications from the Florida Solar Energy Center and the Florida Solar Energy Industries Association.

Rich personally reviews every price quote and supervises every installation, and responds to all questions submitted to Ask Solar Sam.
