Pure Energy Coach

Grassroots Coaching for Homes that Work

We've been in over 40,000 homes, so we've listened to, experienced, tested and seen just about everything.


Anyone can present information. It comes from a book or online course and can be self taught. Where Pure Energy Coach stands out is in skills and abilities training. It takes experience to truly train someone, and we have tons of experience.

     - A. Tamasin Sterner, President and Chief Coach

Our coaches are renowned experts sought out for their input into this country's smart building policies, utility efficiency programs and standards development. Our deep and pragmatic knowledge, coupled with hands-on and individually attentive delivery of training, means you get the most comprehensive and practical professional training in the home performance industry - which will help you get a good job, keep your current job, or advance in the field.
