Testimonial:

Tim Parkinson (Director at Energy Aware)

“Clean Technology Partners were an invaluable partner across each stage of this milestone project for Energy Aware. Their industry experience and specialist knowledge safely guided us through the design and approval steps of the project. Added to this, their ability to design and supply the custom protection system saved substantial time and expense in meeting the challenging site conditions and supply authority requirements. We look forward to working with the CTP team on our next landmark commercial project! “
