American Renewable Energy-- who we are
Owner and President, David Dwyer, is a former designer/builder, and since 1981 has been licensed in Evanston and Chicago, Illinois. His wife and partner, Toni Bark, is a successful physician, medical innovator, and businesswoman. Based on a sharply focused commitment to family and community, they entered the green building and distributed renewable energy business in 2001, starting with a plan for their own house. In 2002, they purchased, re-designed, and built the first urban geothermal drilling platform, adapting the technology and designing the process specifically for dense in-city applications. In 2003, David and Toni began the first ever 'Green Power' projects in the Chicagoland area, both of which have been featured in local and national media. Their commitment to natural capitalism and social entrepreneurship has evolved geometrically, and has been recognized in local and national media.
