Times-Union: Taking the long view
An established business grows by embracing new technologies
Louis Polsinello Sr. started Polsinello Fuels out of his parents' house while still in high school. The year was 1952, and oil was replacing coal as the preferred means of heating homes. ... It's 57 years later, and not much has changed. Polsinello Fuels in Rensselaer still installs and services heating systems, still delivers oil and gasoline, and still looks for every opportunity to expand and to embrace new technology.
"They really believe in making homes more energy-efficient and saving the earth," said Kara Faraone, marketing coordinator for Conservation Services Group of Albany, which works on behalf of the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority's Energy Star home-heating loan program. "They have gone above and beyond what most contractors in New York state have done."
