CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwired - June 2, 2014) - Canadian Energy made history this month when the renewable energy solutions provider installed the first DOW POWERHOUSE(TM) Solar Shingle system in Canada. The innovative solar roof will create annual savings for Mark and Diane Sauer by generating clean energy from the sun while also protecting their home in Lethbridge, Alberta, better than an ordinary roof.
"We are thrilled to be a part of making history in the renewable energy sector with Dow Solar and Canadian Energy," said Mark Sauer. "Due to an insurance claim, our entire roof needed to be re-shingled and the Dow Solar Shingle became a very attractive option for reducing our electrical bill. The solar shingle took the place of some of the regular shingles and looks remarkable on our roof. The end result was definitely more than we had hoped for."
This revolutionary integrated solar technology allows for the same labor and costs applied to roofing a home to be used to install POWERHOUSE(TM) at the same time. Installing the Solar Shingles flush with the rest of the roofing material preserves the integrity of the roof while providing the most aesthetically appealing option in solar.
"Compromise is over," said Craig Ballard, CEO of Canadian Energy, in a special presentation on solar energy at the recent Toronto Green Living Show. "I'm convinced that DOW POWERHOUSE(TM) Solar Shingles are going to change this world. I think we can look at this - most importantly my wife can look at this - and say, 'Yes I will do that,' because it makes sense and I'm willing to live in that home. It's a game changer."
Canadian Energy is the exclusive authorized distributer of the DOW POWERHOUSE(TM) Solar Shingles for all Canadian provinces and territories.
