Who we’ve worked with
“We got in touch with Tipperary Energy Agency to see if they could help, we liked what we heard and the idea of them project managing the whole job for us was great as it is not our area of expertise. I would be more than happy to recommend Tipperary Energy Agency for anyone considering a similar project.”
“There is a lot of paperwork involved in applying for the grant and Tipperary Energy Agency’s knowledge and understanding of the process really took the pressure off us as and they guided us through the whole process.”
“There is a lot of administration and project management involved with any grant scheme such as this and that can be overwhelming for a voluntary committee. That is why it was so good to have the support of Tipperary Energy Agency to assist us and take on the project management. Only a phone call away.”
“The ability to have Tipperary Energy Agency project manage the whole project meant that we could conduct a project that was too big for us to project manage ourselves.”
