August 11, 2009, Greencastle, Ind. — "Federal stimulus funds and greenhouse-gas legislation have the potential to spark a green version of the Gold Rush," begins a story in this week's Indianapolis Business Journal. Chris O'Malley writes, "Among those panning for green gold are Antony Rhine and Richard Witka, managing partners of Indianapolis-based Sestertii, which recruits workers for the utilities industry." Tony Rhine is a 2006 graduate of DePauw University.
"A few months ago, they created Sestertii Solar Inc., a division to sell solar power systems engineered by Brighton, Mich.-based The Green Panel," notes the publication. "Since then, they've been making the rounds of customers attracted to solar for varying reasons."
"One is they want to save the world. Two is to save money," says Rhine, who notes that efforts by companies to be environmentally conscious are also "going to get their customers' attention."
IBJ reports, "The prospect of greenbacks for green energy products and services has a growing number of contractors seeing gold in solar, wind and energy consulting."
