Clean energy for your home – made easy!

We’ve Been Where You Are

Energy Neighbours started in 2020 in three west-end Toronto neighbourhoods, where residents wanted to make their homes more energy efficient to save on their energy bills while doing something practical to help fight climate change. But between finding qualified contractors, navigating complicated forms and government rebates, and understanding the many steps and participant roles, it was a challenging process.

Energy Neighbour co-founder Aaron Freeman was one of those homeowners. With decades of experience in the clean energy field, he led the research to find highly qualified contractors with fair prices, and provided guidance on the available financing. In this first group, 21 homeowners successfully installed solar panels on their homes—powering their homes with clean energy and reducing their carbon footprint. Many residents in the group also installed heat pumps.

Since that time, we’ve expanded the group of residents, primarily through neighbour-to-neighbour word of mouth, and we’ve spread to other GTA communities.

So, we’ve been where you are — wanting to switch from fossil fuels to clean energy — but not knowing how to begin or who to trust to get the job done right. 

That’s why we’re here — to help you navigate your clean energy retrofit with expert guidance and support from start to finish.

When you join Energy Neighbours, you don’t just get access to our experts. You also become part of a network of homeowners across Canada working to help all our neighbours cut their energy bills, increase the value of their homes, and fight climate change — one clean energy project at a time.

Our Mission

We founded Energy Neighbour to make clean energy retrofits easy for homeowners.

Right now, clean energy retrofits are a hassle. Between learning about energy audits, finding experienced, qualified contractors, and navigating complex government regulations and grants, it’s a confusing process to navigate–and costs can quickly spiral.

Our mission is to connect homeowners like you with experts who can guide you through a clean energy retrofit. We’ll listen to your needs and help you choose your project, help you get quotes from contractors, give you a hand with the paperwork, and be with you every step of the way.

Through the whole experience, you’ll have access to our experts seven days a week. They can answer your questions and help keep your project on track.

That’s our vision–to take the guesswork out of your clean energy retrofit by supporting and empowering neighbours like you with the knowledge and tools they need.

Together, we can help all our neighbours reduce their energy bills, increase the value of their homes, and fight climate change–one retrofit at a time.
