Who isn’t looking to reduce the hydro consumption required to heat and cool their home?

So it was with the residents of a Bear Mountain home who had been looking for alternatives for some time. They had already implemented every conceivable adjustment recommended by hydro experts to reduce their bill. Nothing worked. Year over year, the rising cost of hydro outstripped any energy efficiencies they adopted. They wanted a viable, permanent solution.

Colyn Strong, President and Founder of Shift Energy Group, saw the value of energy efficiencies first hand, during the years he managed energy efficiency projects in the public sector and later when he facilitated public sector energy projects with engineers and contractors.

His curiosity encouraged him to assess the viability of solar as a business division back in 2014 when only a few early adopters were willing to take the leap.

“Times have changed since then. It’s still not a mature, mainstream market,” says Strong, “but it’s changing fast. More and more, solar is becoming economically viable as an alternative energy solution for home owners and organizations.”
