It all started in 2007, when two friends were discussing the desire for installing a solar photovoltaic system on their homes.  Funny thing was, they could not find any contractors that installed solar pv. So, they said to each other, why don't we do this ourselves? Why don't we start a firm that designs and installs solar energy systems? If we want it, there must be others that want it as well.  

​Fourth Coast Inc was formed in 2008 by Augusta Withington. Shortly after, Rob Campany joined her. From there, the firm grew to over 20 employees to include design staff and installation crew.  In 2013, the two principals formed St Lawrence Engineering DPC to address the surrounding communities need for local municipal engineering services. 

Both Rob and Augusta understand and appreciate that their colleagues and customers are part of the fabric of the communities in which they all live and play. This is the beauty of Northern New York that cannot be easily found elsewhere.
