Greg White

Solar & EV Manager

Details

I have lived in Victoria for most of my life and I am a father of two amazing daughters.

My endeavour into renewable energy started almost 20 years ago as the Founder and CEO of Solarcrest Energy.

I put together a team to build Canada’s largest solar thermal installation and distribution company with 42 wholesale locations and 1500 certified dealer/installers across western Canada.

The years that I devoted to develop the industry in Western Canada allowed me to work with the key governing bodies for the solar industry such as CANSIA, NRCan, BC SEA and CSA but more importantly I was exposed to the macro and the micro sides of the business and designing systems that meet the energy goals of our clients. 

After seeing the massive cost reduction in the global Solar PV industry I decided to build my knowledge base of Solar PV system design and integration with Home Energy Solutions (HESPV),
Canada’s largest distributor for solar PV systems. With HESPV I worked beside the most experienced PV industry designers and pioneers of the solar industry in Canada.

Brewis Electric Company had the forethought to see the need for this technology and how it integrated into their business model and values.
We are very proud to be able to offer properly designed and installed solar PV systems to our clients on residential, commercial and industrial scale capacities.
