Renewable energy is a critical part of electrification, and we make it easy to sign up

What is Canopy? 

At Canopy, we help individuals make their homes more sustainable and comfortable all while lowering their energy bills.

We do this by helping people swap the fossil fuel burning machines in their homes to clean, energy-efficient electric ones powered by renewable energy. This is commonly referred to as "electrification."

Why focus on electrification? 

Your behavioral choices, like eating habits and reducing waste, are important! But the truth is, your emissions are dominated by the energy you use. 

Your individual choice matters: we've got 1 billion machines owned by individuals that contribute to 35% of emissions in the United States. Together, we can make a real impact, and reap additional benefits like saving money, improving our comfort and health, and being more energy independent.

What specific upgrades do you offer?

We offer upgrades that help you decarbonize your home and transportation. This includes:

  • Getting access to renewable energy, either through your utility or with rooftop solar
  • Making your home more energy efficient, with high-quality insulation, windows, and doors
  • Upgrading to clean, modern appliances, like heat pumps, heat pump water heaters, induction stoves, and more
  • Ditching gas cars for electric, with EVs, plug-in hybrid vehicles, and electric bikes

What choices do I have as a renter?

Renters can take advantage of many of the upgrades like signing up for renewable energy, and purchasing EVs or e-bikes.

We also have special offerings for renters like portable heat pumps or portable induction cooktops.

What are the upsides, aside from reducing emissions?

Other than being better for the environment, these upgrades also:

  • Save you money
  • Improve the comfort of your home
  • Improve your health
  • Make you more energy independent

We personalize each benefit so you can see exactly what impact each one has for you.

How does it work?

The process is simple. As an employee, you'll answer a few questions about where you live, the appliances in your home, and what you care about. We use that information to:

  • Provide actionable recommendations
  • Give you personalized step-by-step guides
  • Find vendors and contractors for you
  • Help you take advantage rebates and tax incentives
  • Show you the impact of your actions

We also offer a full service concierge to answer any questions you may have.

How are purchases verified?

We’ll ask you to submit a receipt or proof of purchase for each upgrade. Our team reviews and verifies submissions on a daily basis. 

If your employer gave you funds to spend towards climate upgrades, then once an upgrade is verified, they’ll reimburse you.
