Our Team

EKON uses a collaborative approach to ensure that the assignment-specific team is the best for the job.  That includes collaborating with others like Advanced Energy Consulting, Optimize Energy and Easyner.  If we can help, we will tell you.  However, if we know someone better suited, we will also tell you!  Steven Taylor, the founder of EKON, would approve.
