Morgan Stine, President
Early in his career, between 1979-1986, Morgan was a partner in wholesale and retail solar companies in Sedona. During this time, he designed, engineered and constructed hundreds of solar renewable energy systems—experimenting with a wide variety of system designs including solar electric, geothermal heat pump, passive solar, and solar thermal. During the next 20 years, he continued to do some renewable energy design and construction, but expanded into general building and engineering contracting work. He specialized in low-energy use buildings, site development and drainage engineering, and alternative wastewater design and engineering.
Since 2008, Morgan has returned his focus to the renewable energy field. He has acquired the necessary technical certifications required to design, engineer, and construct solar electric and geothermal heat pump systems. Through observing the performance of systems he has designed over the last 30 years, Morgan has gained a practical knowledge of thermodynamics that enables him to find the most cost effective method to lower energy costs in a building envelope. This expertise, combined with the ability to design using the latest technology, allows Morgan to construct systems that are economical and low-maintenance for the long term—satisfying both the energy needs and investment goals of his clients.

Brad has specialized training in hydrologic and hydraulic design and analysis.
Prior to working with GEEE, Brad was employed for 5 years as a residential and commercial electrician and also performed microchip (mask) design work for 1 year. Brad is a native Arizonan and has deep appreciation for nature and our environment. On the weekends, he regularly is out exploring nature by bike, boot, or raft.
Laura Palm Belmar, Program Manager
Laura manages company operations and interfaces with clients from the sales phase through project completion. She has developed a deep understanding of the energy market in Arizona which she draws upon to advocate for our clients' best interests. She can help you understand your current utility costs and how to maximize your renewable energy savings with the right utility rate plan post installation. Laura is tapped into national and local trends in renewable energy politics and works with state regulatory agencies and other stakeholders in Arizona to advance common sense renewable energy policy.
Previously, she has worked for the United Nations Development Fund where she redesigned curriculum and trained new teachers to develop planning and management skills. She began her career in the Roosevelt School District in Phoenix, AZ through Teach for America while pursuing her Masters in Secondary Education at Arizona State University. Her transition into the renewable energy field was motivated by the realization that in order to achieve success, children deserve access not only to a good education, but also to a clean, healthy environment.
Matt Acker, E.I.T.
Matt Acker graduated from the Northern Arizona University with a Mechanical Engineering degree. Since joining the company, Matt has worked in energy modeling and solar system design. Matt constantly researches the best technology for every job and manages all materials purchased. His expertise in energy monitoring allows him to teach clients how to monitor the performance of their systems post installation.
