Going to Bat for Wildlife Conservation

I am excited to say that RNRG was recently invited to speak on a panel at the AWEA Wind Project Siting & Environmental Compliance Conference.

Innovation Doesn't (Always) Mean a Brand New Product

Improving existing products is like walking a tightrope. On one side, we need to continually add value to the products we create to make them more attractive to some customers. On the other side, we must ensure that the changes we make will not create issues for existing customers. This creates a constant tension between innovating to improve performance and maintaining product continuity.

Unexpected Benefits of RNRG’s Global Reach

It always amazes me when I think about how this small company in Vermont, U.S.A, has been supplying our products to over 160 countries for almost 35 years. While this is an impressive statistic, it is only important if it means something to our customers. For example, why would a wind developer in India care if we are sending our data loggers to Japan? While it may not seem obvious on the surface, it is very important and it does indeed affect all of our customers.
