Appleseed have a great relationship with each and every one of our customers. We think this is because we are honesty and transparent with them. We tell them what they’re going to get and then deliver it. We never oversell.
Appleseed use the best-of-breed products and materials. This matters. Things don’t break. For instance, the solar panels we use on our house installations are warrantied for 25 years, and of all the thousands we’ve installed over the years, the ones we’ve replaced are still in the single digits. Now, that’s quality.
Appleseed are proud to be based on Janvrin’s Island, Cape Breton, and always will be. We support the local community, attending many fund-raising events. We employ fantastic professionals from our area, carpenters, electricians, and craftsmen and women. Family and community is important to us. We love living here and we want to make this corner of rural Nova Scotia sustainable by doing our bit. We don’t chase the big dollar jobs from the city. We prefer to live humbly and simply in a place we love.
It goes without saying, but as solar energy enthusiasts, we are eco-friendly. We help others become more environmentally-friendly: a typical house installation can save 500 tonnes of carbon per year. This is good for everyone. Our philosophy extends to every facet of our business, from materials, construction techniques, and travel hours. A business can be friendly to the environment and still make a profit. Brian and Gina, the owners of Appleseed, have lived off-grid for many years, growing vegetables, rearing animals, and recycling anything and everything. We don’t just talk the game, we live it too.
