The Société de financement et d’accompagnement en performance énergétique (SOFIAC) was established by Econoler and Fondaction in 2021 with the support of the Government of Quebec. Its mission is to facilitate the energy transition by providing financing and technical expertise adapted to enterprises in the commercial, industrial, and multi-residential sectors.

SOFIAC allows clients to benefit from energy performance opportunities and assists them in their projects aimed at significantly reducing energy consumption as well as decarbonizing their activities.

The innovative SOFIAC approach consists of using a portion of the energy savings generated by projects to reimburse all project development and implementation costs under the energy transition. Throughout the process, SOFIAC helps clients increase their energy performance and reduce operating costs while benefitting from a positive cash flow upon project implementation.

SOFIAC works with energy service companies (ESCOs) in Quebec to carry out deep retrofit projects that have significant impacts for clients. Projects are paid back over a 10 to 15-year period.
