our Story

Sitka Home Energy Solutions was founded on a passion for sustainability and for residential construction.

Our founder, Alison Kirk-Owen, aspired to be an architect and studied at BCIT in building engineering technology. Her career took her in a different direction but exposed a desire to see our built environment become less of an impact on climate and the environment. After over a decade working in the commercial real estate industry as an Energy Manager to reduce the energy consumption and carbon emissions of Vancouver’s most prominent office buildings, Alison decided to pivot her career back to residential construction and founded Sitka Home Energy Solutions.

Based in Squamish BC, Alison thrives in the outdoors – feeling most at home in the mountains, on a bike or on the water. She is an impassioned home renovator, gardener and seamstress and loves to create. Alison is a natural problem solver and being able to apply that in her work is what she loves most about being a Certified Energy Advisor.

The most environmentally friendly & cost effective energy source is the energy you don’t use. Let us help you decrease your home’s impact while saving you money.
