As a Certified B Corporation, we care about meeting the rigorous standards of social and environmental performance, accountability, and transparency needed to become a Certified B Corporation. This includes being involved in the communities that we do business in.
Annually we attend multiple events each year, powering community festivals with our solar trailers and educating attendees about renewable energy.
We value volunteering in the communities with which we do business. Our team members have worked with the following organizations as board members and members:
CanSIA – Canadian Solar Industries Association
SPARK – Alberta Renewable Energy Co-operative
LUTW – Light Up The World
SESA – Solar Energy Society of Alberta

Not for Profit Partnerships
We support organizations that are making a difference locally and globally. Two of our favorite are:
Heart and Solar
Heart and Solar is a not for profit that identifies various charitable organizations across Canada which will benefit from the use of renewable solar energy systems to reduce regular energy costs and then raises funds to purchase and construct solar energy systems for these charitable organizations. Heart and Solar is uniquely positioned to capitalize on Calgary’s extensive energy network of knowledge and capital by employing a myriad of fundraising techniques from informal networking to traditional advertising and annual fundraising events. Heart and Solar’s Board of Directors select successful beneficiaries according to need and capacity.
Their current project is to put a 50-kilowatt solar energy system on Horizon Housing Society’s new building in the Glamorgan neighborhood of Calgary, which will help secure stable and safe housing for over 200 Calgarians and families coming from vulnerable populations.

Light Up the World – (LUTW)
Light Up The World (LUTW) is a Canadian non-profit organization focused on the principle that access to energy changes lives. LUTW implements projects in remote, underserved communities that don’t have access to electricity, providing technical training and solar energy as a catalyst for sustainable development.
Access to clean energy and light creates a healthy and safe home environment, enhances opportunities for education and contributes to economic development by increasing disposable income in the home.
