Green Venture is pleased to offer solar assessments of residential, commercial, or institutional properties. A solar assessment is a desirable prerequisite for the new Ontario MicroFIT and FIT program. A solar assessment produces a comprehensive report on the suitability of your site for solar PV, solar hot water, and solar thermal heating. In addition, Green Venture also examines your passive solar needs, provides educational content about solar power, and makes unbiased third-party recommendations.
Green Venture also offers a separate service- solar turn-key installations. Green Venture is commited to bringing fair and reasonable pricing to the community and has assembled a team of like-minded professionals and suppliers to provide solar PV installations, particularly under the Ontario microFIT program.
Prices for 2012-2013 for MicroFIT solar for rooftops: 54.9 cents/kWh

Green Venture has over a dozen years of experience in conducting home energy audits under the EnerGuide Rating system. We offer residential energy audits, although since 2012 there are no longer any federal or provincial grants available.
Green Venture does not currently offer auditing services for Multi-Unit Residential Buildings.
Green Venture conducts resource assessments on a variety of building types; analyzing energy and water consumption, waste and transportation practices. A report is generated providing historical energy use and associated greenhouse gas emissions. Solutions are provided within the report to reduce your carbon footprint and utility bills. A resource assessment often serves the institutional or commercial client as a prerequisite for a government rebate or grant application.
The ecoENERGY Retrofit service is delivered by Green Venture under agreement with Green Communities Canada.
ecoENERGY Initiatives help Canadians use energy more efficiently, boost renewable energy supplies and develop cleaner-energy technologies. The energy assessment offers a service developed by Natural Resources Canada and/or the Government of Canada. By using energy more efficiently, Canadians can reduce emissions produced through energy use and contribute to clean air, water and energy and a healthy environment.
