About Us

Solar Global Solutions (SGS) was founded in 1988 in Nova Scotia, Canada, as PoleCo Limited. Originally as a distribution company for poles and brackets in the outdoor lighting sector PoleCo developed over 25 years of experience supplying high quality lighting support products to utility, commercial, industrial, and government clients.

In 2010, PoleCo began to explore ways to add more value to its customer through the integration of renewable energy technologies in the lighting sector. This change was marked by a transition from the sole supply of lighting support products into the design and manufacturing of off-grid solar and wind powered street lights.

The business evolved quickly and to date, the company has installed over 500 solar power systems globally. Approximately 75% of these have been to export markets in the Caribbean, Middle East, and USA. In 2014 PoleCo began developing its grid-tied solar business with a focus on developing innovative solar energy generation, storage, and controls solutions for projects ranging in size from utility scale to the residential level. In 2015 PoleCo changed its name to Solar Global Solutions (SGS) to reflect this change in business focus.

Now SGS is a renewable energy engineering firm specializing in the design, supply, and construction of high quality solar power and energy storage systems. Bringing a customer-centered approach to every project, SGS offers engineering design services, procurement, contractor training, as well as installation and maintenance services to our customers.
