The Earthlight Team
Timothy J. Schneider
Co-Owner & CEO
As co-owner of Earthlight, Tim’s daily responsibilities are mostly in project development and new product research. With over 30 years experience in the lighting and energy efficiency industries, Tim’s experience is crucial to our success. Tim started back in the 80’s and 90’s when he had numerous electrical contracting companies. In 1997, he sold his company to a large utility and in 1998 moved the family west to Oregon where he continued to work in upper management for several national lighting and energy conservation companies. Tim holds over 12 different electrical licenses throughout the country. In 2006, the family moved back to Connecticut as Tim’s career moved to VP and Regional Manager of New England, NY, NJ, and PA. Meanwhile, Sam started Earthlight and it continued to grow each year and in 2011 Tim finally joined the family business.
