Michael Matvieshen is the CEO of Sunlogics Power and founder of SunVault Energy, which is a renewable energy distributor based in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. Matvieshen also works for the Aboriginal Power Company, which is also based out of Edmonton. Many people know about the use of solar power in the Western United States, because it is very popular in places like California, Nevada, and Colorado. However, they may not be aware that there are many places in Canada that make good candidates for solar energy generation as well. Matvieshen is working to brings solar and other types of renewable energy to Canadians.
The best locales in Canada for solar energy generation and production are British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Ontario, and Quebec. These areas tend to get the most sunlight out of anywhere in Canada due to their weather. They are also the territories that are the furthest south in Canada, so they receive more direct sunlight each day then the territories that are further north. Canada has been using solar power for space heating and water heating for well over a decade, and is now starting to get into using solar panels for electricity generation and appliance power. Until 2010, the Sarnia Photovoltaic Power Plant in Ontario was actually the largest solar farm in the world. There are many other solar farms in Ontario and other parts of Canada, and Ontario is actually projected to reach 2,650 megawatts of solar power by the end of the year 2015. Many solar projects in Canada as well as the United States are handled by Michael Matvieshen and his employees, who focus on bringing solar energy to businesses and homeowners throughout the region.
