We provide remote, urban and industrial clients the means to save money, reduce ecological impact and realize their sustainable living goals. Our goals are achieved through personalized consultation, design, sales and installation of sustainable living systems. As we are a small company, we are able to take the time to analyze customers' requirements and come up with an appropriate customized solution. We want to expand our company. Through growth, we can set higher objectives, serve more people, increase our knowledge base, and further our mandate. Energy Alternatives was founded in 1984 by Melinda and Ezra Auerbach. They were living on a remote island in BC that still to this date does not have grid power and all power on the island is either provided by generators or renewable energy. The company worked hard to establish itself as "Canada's Mail Order Electricity Store" from the home office base. Ezra and Melinda were responsible for creating the Design Guide and Catalogue, which is currently in it's 10th edition. These design guides are so popular and well distributed, we regularly get calls from people who are reading catalogues that date back to the early 1990's. The catalogue has gone through major changes and updates as products and technology advance, but still retains the essence of the original catalogue. Information is provided in an easy to understand format, explaining how this technology actually works without getting too technical. Eventually, due to the logistics of shipping goods from an island with sporadic private ferry services and a particularly treacherous crossing during winter storms they decided to open a storefront in Parksville, BC. In 1995, the company was sold to Bob Mathews and relocated to Kamloops, BC and merged with Bob's existing Micro Hydro company, Appropriate Energy Systems. In March 2000 the company was purchased by Kevin Pegg , who had been working as a dealer and installer since 1993. The company was relocated back to the West Coast, just north of Victoria, British Columbia, Canada.
