Our employees don't just work to serve the communities of Cambridge, North Dumfries and the County of Brant - many of us live here too. A charitable and giving spirit is alive and growing at Energy+. 

 Donations, Sponsorships and In-Kind Support
 

Community Living Cambridge staff with babiesEnergy+ Inc. is committed to supporting the communities it serves, through corporate donations, sponsorships and in-kind support. Last year, we supported over 30 non-profit organizations in our local communities. 

Primary consideration may be given to non-profit or charitable organizations that support health, safety, child and youth development and families. Consideration is also given to donation requests that support community music, theatre and the arts.

Customers, visitors, employees may access two, high-powered Level 2 EV charging stations at our Cambridge employee parking lot, at 1500 Bishop St. North. Overnight parking is not allowed and vehicles left overnight may be towed.
