than you think!
Solar energy across western Canada is often a viable proposition.
Winters can be gloomy with plenty of precipitation in many areas, the aggregate solar irradiance across both provinces can be favourable enough to have systems deliver significant yields, dramatically lowering your utility bills. We are happy to provide free quotes for all our residential customers. Our proposals offer detailed yield breakdowns and solar irradiance levels across the roofs of homes and garages. For commercial customers, for a nominal fee we offer leading engineering design solutions, yield modeling, and financial analysis.

BluePond does much more than solar. – Introducing BluePond® Energy
BluePond’s knowledgeable staff and its team of expert contractors also cover a range of important energy-related service, such as LED lighting for both commercial and residential customers, commercial energy audits, and enterprise energy management services. We also offer leading green-building design solutions for residential and commercial buildings.
BluePond Energy, a division of BluePond Solar, offers leading energy-management solutions for businesses and organizations. Often commercial customers contact us about solar, but upon asking a few questions, we realize that there exist energy-savings measures within the plant that will generate a much higher rate of return. On some occasions, energy-savings measures can be easily identified, such as LED lighting, while others require an energy study to ASHRAE Level 1, 2, and 3 standards. These energy-savings measures will lead to lower consumption and demand. Identified measures can be low-cost or investment-grade. Solar PV systems can then be designed around the new consumption profile post-implementation of these measures.

We are a new truly western Canadian company with a focus purely on western Canada, but BluePond has its roots based on global experience. We understand the Canadian solar market has been a laggard compared to other markets for a variety of reasons. Our experience comes from one of the world’s leading solar markets, Australia, and following a tremendous amount of planning and research, solar is now is finally ready to take off in western Canada.
BluePond Solar knows British Columbia and Alberta, and we are dedicated to installing high-quality grid-tie and off-grid systems across western Canada one rooftop at a time following international best practices, safety standards, all exceeding national and local codes. Our systems allow customers to take advantage of BC and Alberta’s net-metering programs and the generous amounts of sunshine most parts of each province experience. We know which rooftops are great for solar, and those that aren’t, and we will always give an honest analysis.
We are proud to have an A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau, and offer leading workmanship warranties on all our residential PV systems – 5 years for grid-tie systems and 3 years for off-grid.

Darryl Dornbusch is a veteran electrician with decades of electrical experience and years of PV experience. While completing his apprenticeship in the early 1980s with the legendary Australian company, Southern Cross Machinery, Darryl witnessed the birth of solar-powered applications with Southern Cross’s development of solar pumps. After extensive experience in the construction industry in Queensland and the Northern Territory, Darryl became inspired with solar energy, and has not looked back ever since. He took part of the rise of solar power in Queensland, providing high-quality installations in areas that experience cyclone-force winds. He has completed a wide range of grid-tie installations of all sizes to happy customers around the Sunshine Coast region of Queensland, Australia. He is an accredited solar PV installer, both grid-connect and standalone, with the Clean Energy Council of Australia.
