Get to Know Mary McGraw

My interest in Renewable Energy, Energy Efficient Products and Green Building has grown throughout the past year. During 2007 I  had the good fortune to meet many interesting people who promote energy efficiency in building and renewable energy.  One of those people was Allan O'Shea with Contractor's Building Supply. Allan and I had several conversations about renewable energy and expressed a mutual desire to bring products into the mainstream. Well, one thing led to another and Allan popped the question, "Why don't you come work with me and help me in my endeavor?"

I accepted and joined forces with the AWESOME staff at Contractor's Building Supply. Allan is a wealth of knowledge having been in renewable energy for 30+ years. In 1974, Allan was a founding father and first president of the American Wind Energy Association (AWEA) still in existance and going strong today. Allan has worked very hard over the years from Lansing to Washington and around the US promoting renewables and policies that will be good for all.

Contractor's Building Supply is a master distributor of thermolock windows, solar hot water, solar photovoltaics and small wind energy systems. With a full support staff including an in house engineer we are able to design, deliver and install a system for you or your client.

I look forward to meeting many new people as I develop a network of dealers who are looking for new, cutting edge products to add to their business model! New dealers are always embraced!


Why "Ma" Bigelow for Renewables and Energy Efficient Products? Put your Projects on the RIGHT track!                                   I take great care of PROJECTS! The name "Ma" Bigelow became my nick-name during my mortgage career which began in 2003. Just call MOM - Mother of Mortgages developed into "Ma Bigelow."  I love to care for my homeowners and builders and business owners as if they were my own kids...the kind of care only a Mother can give! With a strong company behind me with years of experience and an engineering staff we not only design your project to fit your needs and budget...we follow it through and see that you harvest the energy that renews your life! I am a professional student -- of life and of my industry. I yearn for information about my industry...this is one of the many reasons I have decided on blogging. There is so much I have to share with others -- and still more to learn -- about real estate and finances. The focus on my current research and learning is how the GREEN building industry and Hi Performance Homes can benefit the lives of homeowners.
