Illuminate Solar

Good Money™ shines a light on solar power

About this story

How do you promote solar energy to people who live in a rainforest? J. Scott believed it could be done. She launched her small business, Illuminate Solar Inc., in 2009 to educate British Columbians on the benefits of solar energy.

Illuminate Solar not only installs solar hot water systems, they also provide free workshops, on-site visits, energy audits and financing options, including information on grants and rebates, to help people choose the best solar energy system to suit their specific needs.

J. received a Micro Loan term loan to renovate her showroom, a Micro Loan Line of Credit to help her build her small business, and business advice from Vancity.

Good Money supports local entrepreneurs who have bright ideas.
