GabEnergy is a registered non-profit society located on Gabriola Island, British Columbia. We work with our community to explore, plan, develop, and operate alternative and renewable energy systems to help meet a variety of goals including sustainability, community capacity building, and cost savings.
The GabEnergy mission is defined by the following objectives:
To assist residents in sourcing, installing and commissioning alternative energy systems on their properties through bulk purchasing of equipment and installation by local trades people (if needed). DIY options also exist.
To work with Gabriola organizations including private sector companies to set up medium-sized, alternative energy systems.
To explore the opportunity of developing a larger-scale energy system on Gabriola that has a co-op structure and is member owned and operated.
To promote energy conservation as a major part of an energy strategy.
