Our Story

I founded Energy EDC with the goal of using energy as a vehicle to create green jobs. I believe that retrofitting buildings and using their energy savings to pay for the service, parts, and labor needed is an organic way to fund a Twenty First century workforce. The jobs that can be created from doing this represent the New Deal of our time.

I cannot achieve my goal of using Energy EDC to create one million jobs without providing a strong value proposition to you. I give you my word that you will be in a better place after meeting us than you were before we met.

I say this specific to you financially, specific to you regarding your community impact, and specific to you regarding time that you spend dealing with energy challenges.

The values that we stand by at all times are transparency, empowerment, selflessness, and tenacity.

After spending my entire adult life in service between serving in the U.S. military—including deployments to Iraq and Afghanistan—volunteering as a mentor in national and regional programs, and helping small businesses, nonprofits, and houses of worship perform energy retrofits as a Department of Energy subcontractor, I could not found Energy EDC until the right players aligned so that I could tell you with certainty that we can deliver the things we say we will deliver when retrofitting your property. 

As a child, I was fortunate to have people in my life who had the means to provide for me.  I recognize that many men and women do not have those means. They lack the dignity that is associated with having a good job. Here at Energy EDC, we create jobs.
