Helping our Clients lower their energy bills
The best solar battery and smart home energy-storage solution available today
OakWood is approved to sell and install the Tesla Powerwall through MPower, which has the exclusive licensing rights in Canada for Tesla products. The Tesla Powerwall is a key component in our solar powered solution for helping clients achieve lower energy costs and self-sufficiency.
The Tesla Powerwall is a 14 kWh rechargeable lithium battery with liquid thermal control that provides a sustained power supply. With the Powerwall, you have the option to store your solar power and use the electricity during a power outage.
Or you can use the Powerwall to time shift your energy consumption and lower your electricity bill. This works by charging the Powerwall when rates are low to use; and then shifting to use the stored electricity when rates are high.

Real Estate Partners
Helping agents and homeowners turn any property into the ideal, move-in ready dream home
OakWood works with top Real Estate agents across the region to help them deliver superior value to their clients. In many cases, a property and an existing home would be “perfect” except:
- It needs a new bathroom

- A small addition would be ideal
- Flooring needs to be replaced
- The window seals are broken
- The entire home is badly dated
- And many other “fixable” problems
OakWood works closely with agents and clients to quickly assess, provide recommendations and our industry leading, fixed-price FullQuote™ to renovate the existing home. We can also facilitate financing for qualified clients; and always strive to complete all work by move-in date to minimize inconvenience.

The most important benefit you get is ensuring your project takes into consideration any special hook-up, space, power and handling needs that new appliances may require. Many now have complex requirements that can affect the warranty.
OakWood includes these requirements in all design and planning for your project to ensure appliances are delivered, installed, and connected according to the manufacturer’s guidelines—with any potential warranty issues handled directly by OakWood.
Proud to be a Habitat for Humanity Partner
Your project could make an even bigger difference!
When you choose OakWood as your contractor of choice, you can also feel good knowing that where possible, reusable materials that are removed as part of a take-down process for your project will be donated to the Habitat for Humanity. That means your renovation could help give a needy family the hand-up they need to build a better life through affordable home ownership.
Habitat for Humanity is a national non-profit organization dedicated to providing low-income families with safe, decent, affordable housing. OakWood has been a partner since 2012 providing project management services, donating reusable materials and supporting Habitat’s ReNew It Program.
