About Hakai Energy

We’re a bonded electrical contractor specializing in remote, off-grid power systems. We work all over the BC coast, bringing reliable and cost efficient power to tough, off-the-beaten-path locations.

Demanding locations often need systems that have never existed before. Along the way we’ve developed our own technology (like container boxes and remote monitoring stations) to bring stability where it’s never existed before.


Hybrid systems take energy from multiple sources – solar to diesel to hydro-electric – effectively integrating them into a single, reliable power grid. An advanced integration system reduces diesel consumption and ensures a steady power supply regardless of which inputs are generating power.

HAKAI Energy Solutions works broadly across BC’s coastal margin, delivering energy systems to communities and businesses from Klemtu to Tofino. In working with government agencies, environmental researchers, and First Nation communities within the region, we’ve continually delivered innovative solutions to solve some of the most persistent and constrictive energy problems. Above the technical requirements, HAKAI Energy has been faced with logistical extremes and site restrictions in many forms. We welcome the call to provide alternatives to the escalating energy costs that challenge this region's future prosperity.
