What Solacity Is All About
Solacity is all about making the world a little greener, one customer at a time! We sell renewable energy supplies to wholesale customers and installers, as well as retail to the Do-It-Yourself market. Moreover, since we have extensive hands-on experience actually installing the products that we sell, we back it all up with solid advice. Have technical questions? Just ask, and more than likely we will have an answer for you. We can help design systems, tell you about electrical code requirements, and just how to install all those bits and pieces.
A Brief History of Solacity
Solacity was founded in January of 2006 to provide the Canadian market with renewable energy products. We started by bringing Eoltec wind turbines to Canada, diversified into wind inverters and making them work with many brands and types of wind turbines, and have since grown to provide wholesale and retail renewable energy products. In case you need it, we also provide engineering solutions! Our primary focus is the Canadian markets, though we will on occasion sell to customers in the US as well. We continue to work hard to grow our business through personal relationships with our customers.
