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.
GabEnergy’s mission is to actively seek ways to broaden knowledge and spread news about the application and economics of solar energy. We do this through information sharing, workshops and partnering with local organizations and contributing equipment and design for community solar PV systems.
GabEnergy’s vision is to actively promote the use of solar energy to reduce our carbon footprint, replace our dependence on traditional energy sources, and facilitate energy independence.
