Mars Green Consulting was founded by Dr. Martha Lenio for the purpose of working on interesting renewable energy projects in Canada. Her experience in the world of solar energy and sustainability has taken her from doing photovoltaic research in Australia, to silicon solar cell R&D in California, to living on off-grid renewable power as part of a Mars simulation, and now back to Canada to share her knowledge and passion for sustainable living. Mars Green Consulting is proud of its track-record of projects in the North working alongside Solvest, as well as it's exploratory work on renewable grids in the Caribbean with RALOS.
