ReWire Energy

The ReWire Energy story is a family love story of sorts. It begins with a family of seven: Mom, Dad and 5 brothers. In September of 2012 their beloved matriarch passed away. The boys vowed to support each other and stay in touch, just as “mom-mom” would have wanted them to.

They began holding weekly calls on Monday nights as part of their effort to stay connected as they all lived in various parts of the country. It was on one of these calls that someone suggested they start a family business.

They decided on energy advisory services after their brother Warren, a nuclear engineer and graduate of RPI, went solar. He articulated a vision of the Solar Electric future and described how they could be a part of that revolution. After about a year of discussion and with all of them contributing, they developed an innovative business model. In 2018, the ReWire team came to the Community Loan Fund for lending capital to expand their business. “The Community Loan Fund believed in us and provided the capital to get us to the next level of growth.”
