Creating Innovative Alternative Energy Solutions

GreenTown talks with Inovateus CEO, TJ Kanczuzewski and Senior Account Executive, Peter Rienks about the future of Inovateus and solar power

Innovation is the common theme linking many healthy, sustainable communities across the country, and Inovateus, based in South Bend, Indiana, derives its name from the word “innovation.” Yet it is also focused on community well-being, says TJ Kanczuzewski, CEO, making it a natural partner for GreenTown.

Since its founding in 2003, this provider of integrated solar energy products and services has been laser focused on creating innovative alternative energy solutions, specifically using solar electricity.

GreenTown recently conducted an interview with Kanczuzewski and Peter Rienks, Senior Account Executive, to learn more about the future of Inovateus and solar power. Read Interview
