What We Do

Summerhill designs and implements Energy Efficiency and Demand Response programs using a Client-Centric Approach as a Guiding Philosophy that ensures we always provide robust program designs with unsurpassed customer engagement, and world class program management.

Our Client-Centric Approach to program design and implementation truly differentiates us from our competitors as we believe our clients have a clear vision of how they want their programs to operate. Therefore, we listen first and probe deep to uncover our clients’ perspective, needs, and goals as this will better inform our program design.

New companies enter our industry constantly with new ideas, methods, and technologies that are both unique and innovative. Summerhill understands that these firms have specialties that can improve program performance, and ultimately, program cost-effectiveness. While our competitors try to acquire or, in some cases, replicate the new approach, Summerhill knows that doing this only serves to dilute the offering, thus taking away the reason it is unique and effective.

We seek to partner with these firms and incorporate their offering into our programs when doing so improves the program design. This enables them to focus on what they do best, while allowing Summerhill to manage the overall program to success for our clients.

We specialize in engaging consumers with innovative approaches that achieve measurable energy savings. We develop innovative approaches that help our clients engage and build stronger relationships with their customers.

On behalf of our many clients, our market initiatives have reached thousands of consumers, increased customer satisfaction, shifted behaviour and driven the uptake of new products, services and technologies that yield real energy savings and results.

Summerhill’s Client-Centric Approach and unparalleled customer engagement expertise are why our programs continue to surpass client expectations and are why we are the leading Canadian program delivery company.
