Red Deer College Solar Energy

Kuby Energy is a solar power design-build contractor with offices in Edmonton, Calgary, and Kamloops. We provide solar energy systems, battery energy storage systems, and EV charger for residential and commercial applications

Tell us about yourself?

I graduated from U of A’s Mining Engineering program, and shortly after joined my friend Jake to create what has become one of the leading solar PV contractors in Western Canada. I have since specialized in solar energy systems and am now a Professional Engineer and the COO of Kuby Energy.

I knew very little about solar energy before starting Kuby Energy, besides that it was probably going to be a growing industry and had some promising environmental benefits.

If you could go back in time a year or two, what piece of advice would you give yourself?

Don’t give up. Keep grinding and pushing on the path that you’re on.

What problem does your business solve?

We reduce carbon emissions by allowing consumers to self-generate clean solar energy.

What is the inspiration behind your business?

We are trying to reduce carbon emissions by implementing clean energy solutions such as solar panels, batteries, and EV chargers. We are trying to help homeowners, businesses, institutions, community groups/non-profits, and indigenous communities across Canada.

What is your magic sauce?

There is no “magic sauce”. We are a contractor focused on doing high quality work for homes and businesses across western Canada. We try and cut out the BS and deal in an honest manner with our clients by showing up when promised, doing what we promised, and at the rate we promised.

Many of our clients have been wanting solar panels for years or even decades prior to contacting us. We appreciate each and every one of them, so we try to operate in a manner worthy of such lifelong goals.

What is the plan for the next 5 years? What do you want to achieve?

We want to continue to solidify our role as residential and commercial solar power leaders, providing high quality, affordable clean energy across Canada.

We will continue to further EV charging infrastructure, and new technology integrations such as Battery Energy Storage Systems (like the Tesla Powerwall) and Building Integrated Photovoltaics (BIPV)

What is the biggest challenge you’ve faced so far?

Working through the uncertainty of covid was a big challenge, but we persevered and came out much stronger as a team and company.

How can people get involved?
