Shifted Energy Equal Opportunity Statement

Equal opportunity for us is more than just words. We are currently 30% female and 50% BIPOC with goals to further increase the diversity of our company.

Ensuring that our business and its practices enhance our community is an integral part of how our company conducts business and is therefore integrated into our work rather than an extraneous effort or activity.
