With millions of homes with electric heating, Québec has been a leader in sustainable, renewable energy for decades - making it a model for the ongoing worldwide transition to a carbon-free future on which Mysa was founded. In honor of Earth Day, we’re thrilled to announce a donation of $40,000 worth of our energy-saving smart thermostats to Habitat pour l'humanité Québec.
The theme for Earth Day 2023 is “Invest in our Planet,” a foundational component of Mysa’s mission: to fight climate change through innovation. We’re helping lead the global transition to a more environmentally-friendly and sustainable future by putting future-forward, energy-saving technology into homes all across North America, including thousands of homes in Québec. Our smart thermostat donation will save an estimated 4,593.3 kWh per year, based on average household electricity consumption in the province.
Valued at over $40,000, our donation of 300 smart thermostats will be added to Magasins Habitat pour l’humanité Québec to help make energy-saving technology more accessible to homeowners in Québec. All proceeds will support Habitat pour l'humanité Québec’s wider mission to “help families build strength, stability and independence through affordable homeownership”. By increasing access to innovative home energy management technology, we are helping homeowners keep their energy bills low in order to continue investing in their own future.
“Our team is incredibly proud to support Habitat pour l'humanité Québec this Earth Day,” said Mysa Co-Founder and COO, Zachary Green. “We share a mission to help empower homeowners to create a sustainable future in which they can thrive. Since the early days of Mysa, Québec has been a place where we’ve built thoughtful relationships with engaged customers and like-minded partners. We’re excited to keep growing those people-first relationships for our shared electric future.”
“Habitat for Humanity Québec, through this donation, is pleased to be able to continue its mission as a key player in affordable housing and to contribute to helping moderate-income families become homeowners while participating in a more accessible, sustainable and responsible economy. In addition, through our Habitat for Humanity stores based on the principle of circular economy, we will offer the thermostats to our consumers who will in turn be able to participate in supporting our projects that help families who wish to access home ownership“ said Shirlane Day, Executive Director - Habitat for Humanity, Québec.
