I have had the pleasure of working with Mr. Sarpong and the team at Rife International on multiple government contracts and energy efficiency related initiatives. Mr. Sarpong has given back to the energy efficiency and renewable energy industry by being an advocate in the community, a speaker on energy efficiency, sustainable development and government contracting subject matters.
