Covering a broad range of scopes, these exceptional business owners are growing their business and expanding their offerings in the high-performance building space. Building Energy Exchange KC kicked off our second cohort of the Rising Trades program in March. Our team supports these contractors through 40 hours of back-office support, one-on-one coaching, mentorship, and a Clean Energy Growth Plan. We look forward to sharing more about these businesses over the next few months!


We celebrated our first cohort of contractors this past winter! Congratulations to Parrish Construction, ROM Electric, Blossom Spaces, and Taylor Rejuvenation Group! We look forward to watching the growth of these four businesses as they incorporate sustainable practices into their work. (pictured above)
