“I am thrilled to be working with Utah Clean Energy, as I find that their work matches many of my own aspirations in the field. Notably being their push towards cleaner energies and the resultant public environmental health improvements. This is something I would like to be at the forefront of one-day, sustainably and equitably providing and incentivizing energy efficiency to rid the toxic emissions that plague our society.
