About Us

The founder and principal, Bob Autio, has over 30 years of geologic experience. The experience has primarily involved environmental consulting but in 2015, Mr. Autio entered a new area, geothermal energy. Mr. Autio became an International Ground Source Heat Pump Association (IGSHPA) accredited geothermal installer.

Combined with other members of EDC, the project team brings a wealth of experience to our projects.
