“Why do I work at The Energy Project? Three reasons: first, the whole concept of energy management is legit, and I have learned that experientially. It’s what makes sharing our approach with individuals and organizations so compelling. Second, the employees and contractors who work with TEP actually practice what they preach. And third, In my entire adult life, I’ve never worked with a more inspiring, fun, and loving group of human beings.”
