Employee Spotlight: R. Scott Mills

I was born  and raised in the San Fernando Valley in L.A., California. In 1955 my father built a high performance home that I grew up in. This started my interest in energy efficient home design. Originally a videographer in L.A., I worked at CBS as an editor. I moved to Aspen, CO in 1974 and worked in public access television and with John Denver at the Windstar foundation as a documentarian.

Having recorded talks by people such as Buckmaster Fuller and Amory Lovins, I found a renewed interest in building efficiency and in building science. I obtained Passive House training, BPI Building Analyst certification along with an alphabet soup of other certifications. I started working with EnergySmart Colorado, CLEER, and CORE in Pitkin, Garfield and Eagle counties. I have been happily working with the team at AboutSavingHeat.com for past 4 years as the western slope project developer. I am most proud of the completion of our 400 unit retrofit of the City of Aspen’s employee housing. They are in the running for a $5,000,000 prize as the most energy efficient retrofit by a small town in the USA.
