EnergyGeeks Helps Canadian SMBs Go Solar with Climate Action Incentive Fund

By: EnergyGeeks
TORONTO - Aug. 9, 2019 - PRLog -- In response to the Canadian Federal Government announcement about the SME Project stream of the Climate Action Incentive Fund, EnergyGeeks, one of North America's largest digital solar companies, is helping Canadian SMBs navigate the new 25 per cent rebate offer and go solar with ease.

On July 17, 2019, the Minister of Environment and Climate Change, Catherine McKenna, announced SMBs in the provinces of Ontario, New Brunswick, Manitoba, and Saskatchewan can now receive a rebate of up to 25 per cent of the cost of projects to make SMBs more productive and competitive as they reduce energy use, save money, and cut greenhouse gas pollution.

EnergyGeeks is encouraging Canadian SMBs to take advantage of this limited time incentive, set to expire within weeks, by using EnergyGeeks' proprietary online solar recommendation system and the expertise of their own EnergyGeeks' customer specialists to navigate the process.

"We established EnergyGeeks as a response to what we felt was a key friction point in the solar industry – the discovery, selection and purchase of the appropriate solar solutions for both businesses and households," says Mackie Hilborn, co-founder and CEO of EnergyGeeks. "By creating a streamlined process and putting the experience online, customers are able to easily shop for solar from start to finish from the comfort of their office or home and with the assistance of our experienced EnergyGeeks team."

Hilborn has found that providing guided services to business owners versus them having to take the research, vendor management, and installation into their own hands accelerated the number of businesses going solar every year. In a nation with a high ratio of SMBs, this new stream of the Climate Action Incentive Fund gives business owners an immediate and meaningful financial boost to go solar with EnergyGeeks.

For Canadian SMBs looking to go solar, EnergyGeeks' approach is simple, customizable and differentiated. Once business owners reach EnergyGeeks' website or call, they go through three steps:

1)    Qualification: a quick yet comprehensive assessment is conducted to build a customized property energy profile.

2)    Matching: EnergyGeeks' proprietary algorithm matches the energy profile with specific products, installation partners and financial options, as well as applicable incentives, which includes the 25 per cent CAIF rebate.

3)    Recommendation: EnergyGeeks' trained energy advisors' step will help business leaders to understand the options, equipment, and cost savings to ensure the best fit solutions can be installed with confidence and ease.

With CAIF funds on track to be exhausted by the end of the summer, EnergyGeeks has scaled up Canadian operations to support the time-sensitive demand.  The EnergyGeeks platform makes it easy to understand the possibilities, limitations, and regional guidelines and simple to make an informed decision. Using the three-step system ensures every business gets into the right program that fits their energy profile and delivers savings.
