Posted by Derek Smith
September 3, 2014:
Sharon was introduced by Renee noting that it was Sharon’s goal to create a better life for herself and her daughter, and to ensure a better standard of living for those among whom you reside. Sharon’s company – Le Natural Mall – promotes the attainment of a more cost-effective and organic living environment for individuals and their communities.
At our meeting, Sharon addressed one of the key elements in her vision – low cost energy efficiency. Some of the products her company is promoting have the ability to reduce energy costs by 50%! However, the avenues to these low-cost energy efficiencies according to Sharon are blocked by BC Hydro’s reluctance to include these items in their catalogue of items for which one could receive a subsidy or grant. She is presently with some school districts, on a pilot project basis, to compare the before and after cost profiles of using or not implementing her products.Sharon incorporated her company in February 2014, and is working hard with various companies, and professional groups to expand her business. To further explain the core aspect of her business, Sharon circulated information on an energy efficiency product line from ESP Communication. This electronic monitoring system has practical applications in the home, and for business as well.
Given her drive for a greener, organic community, using less energy, Sharon seems to be on the right track.Based in Abbotsford, Sharon currently employs 10 staff people, with at least 4 people involved in the research aspect of her business.
