Greenfoot Energy Solutions specializes in spray foam insulation, cellulose insulation, air source heat pumps, geothermal systems, and other ways to make buildings energy efficient. They provide services to both the residential and commercial sectors, ranging from new construction to retrofits.
“We come in and assess the building and model it through energy analysis software to show how much energy is being used and how much money will be saved if you implement one of our services,” says Roy Vandermaar. “We pride ourselves in being able to make those calculations.”
Greenfoot’s head office is based out of Moncton. To help better serve their customers on PEI, they have local technicians and a local office/showroom located along Route 2 in Milton Station, near Winsloe.
“Right now, we have over 50 employees. We hire people in the skilled trades, including Red Seal Electricians, Red Seal Refrigeration Specialists, and Carpenters with insulation and retrofit experience. We train people as well.
“All our employees are experts in their field, and their work focuses on their particular specialty. We usually have crews of two, with one expert and one helper who does the prep work and clean up.
They travel throughout the Maritimes to work. If our local staff require assistance, we will bring in staff from another location in the Maritimes; this allows us to better serve our clients’ needs when working with tight deadlines.
“The company is less than three years old, and we are growing rapidly. We hire on a regular basis. We are constantly putting more trucks on the road. For example, our spray foam crews require one sprayer who must have proven spray foam experience and another who is gaining experience. It is common for someone to start as a helper and become an expert on the job. Depending on the person’s aptitude, that could take up to five years.”
