S&H Energy

Partnering with Clean Energy

The energy industry is experiencing rapid changes in production and delivery to consumers. In the near future, the utility industry is likely to look substantially different than it does today.

Smith & Harroff, Inc. (S&H) has decades of experience navigating change and working on challenging integrated communication projects for the energy industry. Our work has ranged from helping Alcan Aluminum successfully expand their hydro-electric facility in British Columbia, to improving the image of an electric utility in Nevada, to successfully communicating to policymakers that nuclear energy, our largest source of carbon-free electricity, needs to play an important role in our energy future.

S&H’s focus for the future is to partner with clean energy companies and organizations: solar, wind, nuclear energy, hydro power, biomass, geothermal and technologies under development.

With offices in Alexandria, VA, and Vancouver, BC, we are a full-service communications firm.
