Partnering with Clean Energy

About Our Energy Practice

Smith & Harroff, Inc. (S&H) has decades of experience 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.
