About Us


In 1977, Epic Energy President, Richard Knappe read a book on passive solar energy.  This sparked a lifelong passion for the pursuit of the efficient use of alternative energy.  Richard designed and then built a scale model of a home based on the principles he learned from this book in order to personally test the theories.  To his delight, everything worked exactly as the book had suggested.


A few years later, Richard and his wife decided to build that exact home.  Once the windows and insulation were in, it was obvious the home would take very little to heat, even in Atlantic Canadian winters!


Richard expected 1000’s of people to take advantage of this free energy, but, was surprised to know that very few did.  When Richard started his construction company in 1993, he urged home owners and builders to consider solar energy because he knew first hand of the benefits.


Over the years other sources were tested and integrated into his home and he became known locally for his passion for renewable energy.   As energy costs increased, people have become more interested in harnessing renewable sources for their needs.

What Our Clients Are Saying:


"I would like to express my appreciation to the folks at Epicenergy for the outstanding service they have provided. When I decided to build a vacation home on the family property, it became apparent that many obstacles would have to be overcome, not the least of which would be power supply. The building site was "Off-Grid", and NB Power gave a rather substantial sum as a quote for providing power to the site.....with the promise of monthly charges for providing me with a consumption bill every month...."
