Stephen Mogowski

President and Director of Operations

Stephen is the owner and founder of Desert Skies and is in charge of daily operations as well as long term business development. Stephen is a 2007 graduate of Randolph-Macon College in Ashland, Virginia. He obtained a Bachelor of Science in Environmental Studies and his passion for the environment is what drives the company forward today.

Stephen’s goal for Desert Skies is to increase the number of comfortable, energy-efficient homes in Arizona. Stephen has a unique vision for Desert Skies and the housing stock in America. As an optimist and an opportunist, he feels there is a real chance to increase homeowner comfort and property values while decreasing monthly utility costs and air quality concerns. He claims energy efficient homes are a “win/win” for any homeowner.

The success of Desert Skies is based on a foundation of craftsmanship, hard work, trust and respect. Stephen works daily to ensure the company culture is one that follows the “7 Habits.” According to Stephen, “creating a positive work environment and keeping open and honest communication with clients is paramount … and likely a main reason for our success.”

Kevin Wiscombe

Residential Energy Supervisor

Kevin performs the bulk of Desert Skies’ field inspections and is a project manager for several multifamily residential projects. When not braving the Arizona heat, he retreats to the office where he fills in as a plan analyst. He is an Arizona native and has experience with new home construction as well as existing home weatherization.

He holds multiple green building certifications but his experience is what sets him apart from other professionals. Desert Skies has a company policy to diagnose any testing failure which means much of Kevin’s time is spent diagnosing problems with HVAC systems and building systems. Kevin is an invaluable resource for multiple HVAC companies as well as custom home builders.

Kevin also was a driving factor in our shift to 3D energy modeling; a decision that has led to laser accurate plan review takeoffs and easier identification of problem areas in homes.
