Sean McGraw founded Affordable Energy of AZ in 2010, but the story began long before then. In 1935 Sean’s great-grandfather, Clarence Kimball established his own building material distribution company in Michigan. The company specialized in windows, doors, insulation, and more. Responsibilities and ownership continued down throughout the generations until Sean’s father, Brian, eventually assisted Sean in bringing these services to Arizona.
From a very young age, Sean’s father and grandfather personally involved him in the inner workings of the business. This unique environment provided Sean with an early exposure to countless residential and commercial energy-efficiency projects. Sean’s passion for energy was fortified during his exceptional experience at Arizona State University’s School of Sustainability. Sean graduated from ASU in 2010.
In recent years Sean shortened the company name to FOR Energy and introduced 3 new partners (Tyler Nay, Ty Story, and Bryce Wyler) and has expanded into neighboring states. Together the four partners, and the entire FOR Energy team, are committed to providing sustainable solutions for generations to come!
I worked with Tyler Nay and Jeff + crew in my home and both were very knowledgeable and friendly. I was happy to hear the DIY energy-saving project recommendations they made for me and the work was done very professionally. The crew arrived early and were very respectful around my house. I had insulation added to my home and was pleased with the quality of work. Thanks!
