Powering Communities & Businesses
Specializing in the development of energy projects that support the financial, economic and environmental aspirations of communities and businesses
What We Do
Commercial Rooftop Projects
Projects that utilize the space available on existing developments such as building rooftops and/or parking lots, with the goal of further reducing the environmental impact of energy production.
Establish project financing models that include opportunities for investment in projects by
Albertans through the facilitation of “Green Energy” bonds.
Revenue Model Generation
Develop various energy use/revenue models (i.e. subscription, lease, PPA/CFD, REC, Etc.) that are adaptable to the unique circumstances of projects.
Utilizing emerging technologies such as block chain enabled peer-to-peer energy trading platforms, in addition to microgrid and energy storage technologies.
Our projects are focused on creating economic and social value within the communities they are built in, and as non-profit corporation 100% of profits are reinvested into developing more projects.
We are committed to establishing a green energy future by empowering local communities, institutions, businesses and citizens to reduce their carbon footprint by bringing together the necessary technical and financial expertise and resources in renewable/alternative energy project development, with the objective of identifying, developing and facilitating community energy generation projects.
This will be accomplished by seeking direct participation of various segments of our communities in local renewable energy generation projects through either:
Investment/ownership in a project
Purchase/use of energy generated by a project
Facilitation of a project by providing facilities, real estate and other forms of participation.
