We Help Businesses, Municipalities, & Multi-Unit Residential Facilities Reduce Their Hydro Bill


If you’re frustrated with your increasing hydro bill you’re not alone.  Back in 2012, Jon Bryan, our founder, was in the same boat.  As a business owner, he was looking for ways to decrease the company’s hydro and gas bills, they just seemed to keep climbing higher and higher.

One day he was talking with a friend who mentioned his brother’s business had just installed some LED lamps.  The math worked, these LED lamps consumed less energy and lasted far longer than the lamps he was using.  Lower energy consumption means lower hydro bills.  Longer lifespans mean less replacement and maintenance costs.  Forgive the pun but the light went on for Jon.

There was only one problem, at that time LED lamps were hard to come by.

Over the next few months, Jon was able to build relationships with several LED manufacturers and started to retrofit his business.  These were still the early days of LED, but already the energy savings and lamp longevity were there.  LED was the wave of the future.

By 2013 Swantech Energy Solutions was born.  Over the next couple of years, further manufacturer relationships were formed, and Swantech’s product offerings expanded.  Through this network of manufacturers, relationships were created with established west coast lighting and energy efficiency companies who specialized in large facility retrofits, particularly industrial and recreational facilities.  Swantech became the Ontario boots on the ground for these companies and started retrofitting arenas, manufacturing facilities, and warehouse/distribution centers.

In 2015 we forged a relationship with a master electrician who had been working on lighting efficiency projects for over 20 years.  We now had an in-house team of electricians who specialized in energy efficiency and solar installations.

From there, our product offerings have expanded to also include lighting controls, UV-C disinfection & air purification, solar lighting, solar energy storage, and demand use hydro bill reductions.  We’ve worked on hundreds of projects across southern Ontario and are ready to help you operate more efficiently and more profitably.
