A Message From Our Owner, Stephen Mogowski
The EPA suggests that we spend up to 90% of our time indoors. I feel privileged to help create healthy, high performance homes and buildings that are the centerpieces of our lives.
Growing up, my grandfather was a woodworker and taught me the definition of craftsmanship. His focus and precision was evident in every piece of furniture he built whether it was a small dining room table or custom cabinetry. I always admired that commitment to perfection and that dedication to your craft has helped guide me through my personal life. Ultimately, it would follow me to Desert Skies Energy as well.
After graduating from Randolph-Macon College, I moved to eastern North Carolina and started working at a mid-sized HVAC company. Each day gave me an invaluable understanding of the industry– both good and bad. We worked on new construction projects, rehab projects and performed emergency rehabilitation work in the aftermath of hurricanes.
A move Arizona in 2011 allowed me the opportunity to enter the energy efficient home industry where I worked primarily with the EPA’s Energy Star for Homes program. Certifying thousands of homes annually was the first step in feeling like we were making a real difference in people’s lives.
In 2014, I started Desert Skies Energy with a goal of improving the performance of new custom homes. Custom homes typically have challenging details that need unique solutions and we felt we were perfectly suited to handle these situations.
Years later, we have expanded our services to include multifamily housing and existing homes. Yet our basic commitment to seemingly small details and to the owners themselves continues to define us as a company.
Using our real world experience from past projects to make each new project a little better, we are able to see continued positive changes in our communities and indoor environments. In time, we expect to make a tangible impact on lowering carbon emissions while simultaneously delivering some of the most comfortable, healthy homes in the world.
All the best,
