Fourth Coast Inc was formed on the belief that we, as a global community, should make collective efforts to reduce our consumption of energy. Augusta Withington formed Fourth Coast, Inc in 2008, bringing over 20 years of financial and consulting experience, with particular expertise in project development and implementation for the private, public and non profit sectors.
Having previously worked at a local architectural and engineering firm, she subsequently decided to branch out on her own with a specfic intent and concern: how to create a better environment for the current generation as well as for those to follow.After earning an economics degree, Withington worked for many years in the financial industry. In 2004, she started a successful computer consulting business working primarily with non profit agencies in the Thousand Islands region. Current projects range from asset inventory and management, and development of energy conservation strategies to design and installation of solar photovoltaics, solar thermal and geothermal energy systems at municipal, commercial and residential buildings in the St. Lawrence River Region. The company's focus on project development and financing has helped both private and public building owners reduce energy use and implement appropriate alternative energy solutions.
