A story of

Shortly before EthoEnergy began, Ken (one of our original founders) was on a business trip in the West where he met a farmer with an oil well. As he watched the derrick plunge up and down in the summer sun, he asked the farmer what he thought of the rig.

“Oh” the farmer replied, “That rig brings security and regularity to our farm income. In a year that crops are poor, it evens out the tough times and helps us through. In a year that crops are good, it’s an added bonus that makes a good year even better!”

Ken thought, “What if we could supply every home with an oil well? What if we could bring everyone this kind of security? But what if we could do it with renewable energy?”

So began the mission:

These are the stories of why we do what we do!

“We love the way it looks and are proud to take part in the ideal of sustainable living while enjoying the benefit of a passive income through the power our roof is producing. EthoEnergy has been an exceptional partner for us from start to finish.”

“Tom and I were excited to take the leap and invest in clean energy. The microFIT program provided us the opportunity to do just this. Generating renewable power right from our rooftop is something we are proud of and have used it as a great lesson for our children.”

“For us, solar was a natural choice. We consider ourselves financially prudent people while also acting as early adopters. The complete system EthoEnergy provided us along with the returns of the microFIT program has made us a family of very satisfied customers. The additional income has enabled Josée to remain at home through these precious child raising years.”

“We chose EthoEnergy as our partner in PV for several reasons. The team was well educated and took time to teach us about solar. EthoEnergy is a reputable company, which translated well when dealing with our bank. EthoEnergy continually seeks opportunities for designing more efficient PV systems and demonstrates their commitment to innovation through research and staying up-to-date on the latest technologies and best installation practices. It is difficult to expand in the dairy industry since land is expensive and quota being difficult to come by. Investing in solar through the Ontario FIT program provided our family and business an opportunity to generate a second source of income. We recommend any farmer or family seeking to diverse their land use or optimize on unused rooftop space to contact EthoEnergy and learn more about their options.”

“By choosing to go solar, our school has become an enduring example of how to apply sustainable practices here in the heart of our community. Our student and staff body along with the supporting  families, churches and corporate sponsors have enabled this project to be realized, thereby, bringing a renewed sense of unity and celebration to our school. The additional passive income through the Ontario FIT program will also help sustain our fundraising needs. EthoEnergy has been our partner from start to finish and we feel confident in their ability to serve you in your solar needs.”
