TORONTO and BOUCHERVILLE, QC, Aug. 14, 2017 /CNW/ - Solar Brokers Canada, one of the largest residential solar providers in Canada, its affiliate Green Lion Eco Group, a solar engineering and project management company, and Lowe's Canada, a leading home improvement company operating more than 600 stores in Canada under different banners, today announced the creation of Lowe's Solar, an exclusive partnership to provide solar energy installation services to homeowners throughout the province of Ontario, Canada.
After the completion of a successful pilot program in select Lowe's stores in the Toronto area, Ontario customers now have the opportunity to meet with trained solar consultants at all Lowe's retail locations across the province to review feasibility scenarios for their home, learn about available Ontario government incentives and how solar energy can make their lives better, all while helping reduce their environmental footprint. These solar consultations will be facilitated using interactive digital display kiosks that provide insight into a solar installation.
"This initiative with our partners from Lowe's Canada is a natural fit. Efficient renewable energy technologies are the next step and an integral part of sustainable home improvements," said J.C. Awwad, Chief Executive Officer at Solar Brokers Canada. "We are confident that this partnership will make top quality solar solutions accessible to many more homeowners throughout the province."
"Solar energy is increasingly important in Ontario. Through this partnership with Solar Brokers Canada, Lowe's is now in a unique position to provide a simple one-stop solution for Ontario customers looking for renewable energy solutions and convenient in-home installation options while also adding value to their homes," said Malcolm Parks, Divisional Vice President, Operations at Lowe's in Canada.
This exclusive partnership expands Solar Brokers Canada's market reach across Ontario, while also supporting Lowe's Canada's efforts to help its customers reduce the environmental impact of their home renovation and construction projects.
