Stitt Energy Systems, Inc. exists "to provide energy efficient homes that are environmentally responsible for the health, welfare, and happiness of our customers, employees, investors and future generations.
Orlo Stitt and his brother, John, founded Stitt Energy Systems in 1978 with the simple goal of building energy-efficient homes that were more stylish than others being built in the ‘70s. Trusting the public was ready to embrace energy efficiency, they opened for business in a circa 1946 home on a tree-covered lot in Rogers, Arkansas.
Orlo, who built his first passive solar home in Canada during the early 70’s, had learned that the materials in a home’s energy ‘shell’ – the foundation, walls, windows, doors, roof, and insulation – all work together to make a home efficient. Any deficiency in either materials or assembly ultimately compromise the home’s energy performance. In essence, the materials and workmanship that go into building a home create a complete, integrated Energy System. To emphasize that concept, the brothers included it in the company name; Stitt Energy Systems.
