SkyFire’s vision is to bring the magic of solar to the world for a stronger, healthier and more sustainable global community. As part of this grand vision, we would like to inspire you by sharing stories of local green heroes in your communities.
This “Faces of Renewable Energy” series will shine a light on the difference renewable energy is making in people’s lives across Western Canada. We will be showcasing SkyFire team members, customers and community partners.
In our sixth episode, we feature David Kelly, our CEO & Founder, who is the spark that started the “fire” in SkyFire Energy. He shares about the first solar PV system that he installed in 2001 and how it was a bold move to venture into the solar business when solar was in its infancy in Canada and the economics weren’t great at that time. Since then, the price of solar has reduced significantly, making it a viable energy investment which now works without subsidies and can compete with grid prices. David Kelly shares about SkyFire’s journey over the last 18 years and how we grew to become Western Canada’s leading solar provider. Solar is undeniably a key component of Western Canada’s energy future and David explains why it’s the perfect fit.
