Description of business, organization, invention

Mainstream Energy Corporation is a renewable energy company investing capital and expertise into developing products, projects and businesses that have the potential to help make photovoltaics – solar-generated electricity – a significant contributor to our total energy supply. We believe that rapid integration of solar and other renewable energy sources into the conventional electricity grid is both inevitable and absolutely vital to creating a more secure and sustainable world.

We envision the day when "going solar" is as simple and commonplace as installing a heat pump or air conditioning system; and we contribute to the realization of that vision by supporting the development of cost-effective infrastructure that delivers competitively priced renewable energy to homes and businesses across North America.
