About Solar Panel Power Canada

(is now EnergyHub.org)

Solar Panel Power Canada

Background

According to The World Bank, 9% of electricity generated in Canada is lost through transmission and distribution systems. Fossil fuel arguments aside, this means that even ‘green’ energies like wind, hydro, and solar are subject to needless inefficiencies at the utility scale.

This is why, at Solar Panel Power Canada (is now EnergyHub.org), we firmly believe community-owned solar generation is the only path towards a truly sustainable future.

Market Research Reports Coming Soon!
