Power Giants has championed the adoption of sustainable renewable energy options and is a leading service provider of clean energy infrastructure such as sub-stations, and solar and wind-powered systems which also helps fight climate change by reducing toxic carbon waste.

This is the fifth award bagged by Power Giants this year, a testament to the positive impact the organisation is making in the communities.
