Melbourne-based national solar energy company Energy Matters has been announced a finalist in the Citipower Port Phillip Business Excellence Awards for environmental sustainability.
Open to all businesses located in the City of Port Phillip, the Awards recognise, reward and celebrate the achievements of local business and their contribution to the Port Phillip community.
Energy Matters co-founder Max Sylvester says the company is honoured to make it this far in the Awards process.
“Hard on the heels of our Melbourne Awards win, being a finalist in the Citipower Port Phillip Business Excellence Awards is an added cause for celebration at Energy Matters.”
“All our team have worked incredibly hard in growing the company since our humble beginnings after a kitchen table discussion in Armadale just 5 years ago. We not only aim to be Australia’s leading solar power supply and install business, but to make our mark in renewable energy advocacy and ensuring we maintain a close eye on our own environmental footprint too.”
Energy Matters is a finalist in two categories of the Environmental Sustainability section:
– Environmental Impact: Businesses demonstrating sustainable measures and minimisation of environmental footprint.
– Products & Services: Businesses with outstanding products and/or services that reduce environmental impact from a lifecycle perspective.
The latter category is in relation to the company’s revolutionary Sunlock solar panel mounting system, designed and manufactured in Australia, which is increasingly appearing on rooftops around Australia.
The awards gala presentation evening will be on the 21st October at the St Kilda Town Hall.
