Bill Keith, president of SunRise Solar, has been inducted as a fellow into the Northwest Indiana Society of Innovators. Keith was honored for his work in the development of the SunRise Solar Attic Fan and its impact on green building technologies.
During the award ceremonies, Keith told the Gary Post-Tribune: ‘All I am is a guy who had an idea and couldn't get anyone to help me. Going from people telling me, 'no we can't lend you money, it's not a good idea,' to being an innovator of the year is a big step.’
SunRise Solar is based in St. John, Ind. Its products are manufactured in Warsaw, Ind., and have been installed across the U.S., the Caribbean, Europe and the Middle East.
