“As the energy market evolves from a large centralized system primarily based on coal to a decentralized system focused on cleaner, lower carbon and renewable sources, we want to be poised to assist our clients as they contemplate their future strategies. Therefore, we are expanding our expertise and technical capabilities to support these initiatives,” said Jeffrey P. Jaros, COO and EVP at NTH Consultants. “Rob is an important strategic hire for us due to his extensive background in renewable energy projects, including NEPA compliance, habitat restoration and more. We look forward to his help in strengthening our renewable energy initiatives.”
