Electrical and industrial supplies distributor Turtle announced June 13 that it has partnered with national clean energy transition company Catalyze to expand the availability of energy-efficient solutions to commercial and industrial entities and support them in achieving net zero carbon and ESG goals.

Linden, New Jersey-based Turtle was No. 17 on MDM’s 2023 Top Electrical, Data & Security Distributors list.

Per a news release, Turtle will collaborate with Catalyze to bring to market its offering to finance, install, own and operate integrated renewable energy solutions with no upfront capital costs, with renewable energy assets owned and operated by Catalyze. As the partnership develops, Catalyze will then integrate Turtle’s supplier solutions into those projects.

“This initiative showcases our approach to radical collaboration with partners, suppliers and customers to engage early in the design process and co-create next-generation solutions in energy transformation,” Turtle CEO Kathleen Shanahan said in the release. “As our customers explore ways to reach their sustainability targets, we believe that we can take a leadership role in harnessing the power of partnerships to help us all rethink energy and advance positive outcomes for our planet.”  

“As commercial and corporate entities move ESG to the top of their priority list, they are seeking simple, cost-efficient ways to integrate clean energy solutions and reduce emissions across entire portfolios,” echoed Steve Luker, Catalyze CEO. “We’re proud to collaborate with Turtle to demonstrate that leveraging technology, innovative contracting, and vertically integrated capabilities can make it easy and profitable to meet ESG and operational goals.”

In December 2022, Shanahan joined the MDM Podcast for an interview about her unique path to becoming Turtle’s CEO, the distributor’s emphasis on diversity in both its workforce and supplier base, and how investment in sustainable energy storage has positioned the company for continued success in the age of electrification.
