Our Organization

GabEnergy was registered in March 2014 in BC as a nonprofit society under the name, Gabe Energy Society. GabEnergy started as a community-minded initiative to bring solar equipment to Gabriola Island residents. It quickly grew into a vibrant enterprise that provided solar PV expertise and equipment to individuals, businesses, organizations, and municipalities across BC. We are for the time being, however, confining our operations to the Gulf Islands and the Nanaimo area.
