President & Chief Engineer of Pacific Energy - Steven P. Olsen


Steve started his career in facility engineering in Hawaii in 1982 as a college intern.

He completed his Engineering degrees from Northwestern University in 1985, and a Masters of Science in Engineering from the University of Michigan in 1987.

In 1988 Steve moved back to Hawaii, performing facility engineering, energy surveying, and construction management, specializing in mechanical and electrical systems. With about $90M in completed projects under his belt, $31M of these specifically in energy conservation systems, Steve took upon himself to obtain his own licenses and started Pacific Energy in 2001.

Being a specialist in energy systems, Steve also earned the title of "Certified Energy Manager" from the Association of Energy Engineers.

Steve did his first solar hot water in Guam at Andersen Air Force base. As Guam has massive typhoons, he learned how to engineer and build very strong systems that would last such storms.
