About Us

Corporate Overview

Energy Environmental Corporation is a company specializing in worldwide design, installation, and consulting of integrated renewable energy systems. We are located near Denver, Colorado, at the base of the beautiful Rocky Mountains. Our goal is 100% account references. As such, we have teamed with some of the leading experts in the country to provide total solutions to meet our clients' needs. We provide a single point of responsibility for design and installation of integrated building envelopes and heating/cooling/energy systems.

What We Stand For

We believe "green" education and training is paramount to solving the challenges created by the world economic crisis, green house gas emissions, and our dependence on fossil fuels. Wiith 40% of energy consumption related to building construction and use, adopting renewable residential systems within the framework of an integrated architecture is the answer. Training existing contractors on renewable energy creates "shovel ready" jobs while reducing the dependence on foreign oil and greenhouse gases immediately upon implementation. EEC is working with Goodwill Industries in Colorado to train high school students in order to create jobs in renewable technology. These services are provided at no cost to the beneficiaries.

EEC provides green technology educational seminars at minimal cost to consumers and home owners. By working with manufacturers for the widespread adoption of green products and by offering training to construction professionals, we are making inroads to overcoming consumer and building trades´ misperceptions about alternative HVAC and power systems and green building methods and materials. We work with distributors to preserve jobs for traditional building trades (plumbing, electrical, and HVAC) by training these contractors in alternative energy systems (solar thermal, solar PV, and geothermal). A recent initiative is focused on educating design professionals (architects, engineers and LEED professionals) on the benefits of adopting an integrated systems architecture approach in residential and commercial buildings versus relying on traditional trades to implement disparate components.

We are dedicated to sharing our success with those less fortunate. In 2009, Energy Environmental Corporation allocated over 10% of gross profits to infrastructure projects in Peru which improve people's quality of life within communities lacking clean water, reliable power, adequate communications, or medical facilities.
