About Zenith Power

The Zenith Advantage

Boutique Consultancy

We have a far greater vested interest in client satisfaction and success than larger organizations, for whom the renewables sector and/or individual clients represent a small portion of overall company success.

Unbiased Advice

We are not a project developer or investor, and therefore have no commercial interest in steering our clients towards one particular technology, project, or solution.

Value Aligned Partnerships

We are willing to stand behind our solutions by aligning our compensation structure with the profitability of the outcome we achieve for our clients.
