Hawke's Bay solar business Freenergy Solar Solution has won two national sustainable energy awards. Owned by Aaron and Michelle Duncan, it won the small business category at the annual Sustainable Electricity Association of New Zealand's Industry Awards.
Mr Duncan was also announced industry person of the year. "Up against CEOs from very substantial large organisations, Aaron's win is definitely a David and Goliath scenario," association chairman Brendan Winitana said. Mr Duncan had worked hard to help grow the industry and had demonstrated open, transparent communication and collaborative skills. "It was obvious that he is doing all he can to benefit the end consumer," Mr Winitana said.
Mr Duncan said winning the person of the year award was "really out of left field", with candidates chosen by judges. Click here to read the full article in Hawke's Bay Today.
