Who We Are

A little about us:


Who we are: Mike Rutledge and Gemma Garcia

Wi-Buy consists of Mike Rutledge and Gemma Garcia.

Mike studied renewable energy in the mountains of NC and then worked in solar and various industries after while Gemma worked in IT in the Philippines, Seattle, and now Charlotte, NC.

We met last year and worked together a bit while Mike was starting the business with a high school friend, Josh. After a while, Josh needed to leave for family obligations and Gemma stepped in bringing technical skills and media producer talents.

Wi-Buy is a business with aspirations. Renewable energy and technology are exploding and we want to educate you on the innovations as we know it can be hard to keep up, but most of all, we want to put sustainable, high quality gear in your hand for all of your adventures and bring you quality content in whatever media you consume.

We love what we do and we are just as passionate as you about the freedom that comes in making your own power and getting off the grid. We seek to give you the resources you need to learn and be successful. We want to give back to our community and world.
