Williams Lumber, an eight-location dealer based out of Rhinebeck, N.Y., is taking on energy bills at its Tannersville, N.Y., location by using two resources found in abundance at the Catskill Mountains location: sun and wind. The dealer installed solar panels and a wind turbine at the yard last fall. It’s too early to tell how much the turbine and solar panels will reduce utility bills, but owner Sandy Williams so believes in the technology that he also has installed solar panels on his own home.
