Purpose

Heart and Solar is a registered Canadian charity1 with a view to providing long term financial relief to other Canadian charities2 while simultaneously reducing carbon emissions and supporting local businesses.


Our Vision

Canada is in the enviable position of having vast resource wealth. Along with the obvious natural resources, Canada has excellent solar resources.

Heart and Solar recognizes the importance of charitable work and initiatives at all levels, and we recognize the financial challenges that many charities face. Heart and Solar was founded as a not-for-profit Corporation with a view to providing long term financial relief to Canadian charities while simultaneously reducing carbon emissions and supporting local businesses. Energy bills are ever rising, and the operational costs for Canadian charities rise with them.

With Alberta's net metering program, many owners of approved solar projects can now eliminate their power consumption bills. The result is a long term benefit to Heart and Solar’s beneficiaries, as well as to the business partners who will be responsible for the design, installation and maintenance of the solar arrays.


Our Approach

 
We identify charities that will benefit from solar energy, according to need and capacity
 
Fundraising techniques, ranging from informal networking to traditional advertising and fundrasing events will be used
 
The fundraising will be then used to hire solar installation companies at no cost to the beneficiary organization
