Advocating for solar for more than 30 years, Bill hosted one of San Antonio’s first major solar installations on the rooftop of his bank in the 1980s. Now at the age of 99, Bill remains one of the most forward-thinking and committed individuals in our community when it comes to harnessing the power of the sun. His tireless efforts to educate the community about the need for renewable and sustainable energy have produced adoption of solar technology at the CPS Energy Customer Service Center, Bexar Country Jail, and more.
