Kimberley Smith Quirk
Kim began her own journey toward fossil fuel independence in 2003, with the purchase of a second-hand early generation Prius. It was one powerful step toward fossil-fuel independence that led to countless other steps. She went on to renovate an old building to a zero energy building which she currently lives in and is a showcase and Renewable Resource Center for visitors of the Energy Emporium.
Kim earned a Masters degree at the Thayer School of Engineering at Dartmouth College with a concentration in electrical engineering and has held various engineering and management positions since then. Kim specializes in design, installations, and customer support. She is particularly adept at measuring systems and optimizing energy efficiency in solar electric, solar thermal, combination, and off-grid systems.
She earned NABCEP PV Technical Sales Certification in 2012 and NABCEP PV Installation Professional certification in 2014.
Kim brought Bryan in as an intern just as he was completing a degree in Natural Resource Management at Granite State College. When the internship was over, Bryan decided to stay on as an employee. Passionate about environmental efficiency and knowledgeable about solar energy, Bryan provides support in sales, service, and installation at the Energy Emporium. Bryan offers tours of the zero energy building and schedules and attends site visits to assess solar potential and to discuss energy goals. He is the organizing force behind each project, scheduling appointments and filling out the paperwork for state rebates, and interconnect agreements, so that you don’t have to.
