“Prior to starting this company, my job consisted mostly of installing more lights, more receptacles, larger equipment, resulting in more power being consumed and increasing the consumption of natural resources. With a new family on the way, I felt compelled to shift my focus and use my knowledge of electrical systems to do something more beneficial for society, the environment and my children’s future. The result is Small Planet Energy Inc., a company based on ethics, conservation and a vision of a sustainable, carbon negative future.”
Garryt Brown, a native of New Mexico, has been involved in the photovoltaic field for many years, installing hundreds of systems for a diversity of applications. Now a resident of Vancouver Island, he brings his skills and enthusiasm to the Small Planet Energy family. With a Master of Science in Electrical Engineering and NABCEP solar installation certification, his knowledge and positive personality purely reflect the vision and inspiration of Small Planet Energy!
“I am honored to add my extensive solar installation background to the brilliance and innovation at SMALL PLANET ENERGY. As solar energy gains momentum on Vancouver Island, SMALL PLANET ENERGY is dedicated to installing the highest quality systems at the most affordable prices. This is a company with integrity, and one that I’m excited to be a part of!”
