“Solar power is going to be absolutely essential to meeting growing energy demands while staving off climate change.” Ramez Naam
After watching the solar industry grow and evolve for years, it is still hard to find anything wrong with solar energy health-wise. It is also great to note that the prices seem to be lowering as solar energy becomes more and more mainstream. But the most exciting thing about the solar energy industry is the number of new innovations from the new roof tiles that look like slate, to the paper-thin solar cells, you have to admit, Solar Energy is one of the most interesting and vital industries around today. You can have a solar cell on your backpack, bicycle, windows, and more. Watch the fascinating and encouraging developments and new technologies delivering solar energy to homes, workplaces, communities, entire cities, and countries on our Facebook and Pinterest Pages.
“We live in a world bathed in 5,000 times more energy than we consume as a species in the year, in the form of solar energy. It’s just not in usable form yet.” Peter Diamandis
BC Sustainable Solutions is most passionate about promoting any form of Solar Energy. It is one of the main focuses of the site. With that in mind, we have published a Geographic Information System Map that focuses on Solar Energy Providers in BC. If you are interested in going solar, just click on a pin near your location to display the description of services, address, phone number, website, photo, video (if they have one), and logo of various solar companies in British Columbia. You’ll find manufacturers, installers, and providers of products and accessories to help you go solar.
“Solar will outcompete other technologies.” Billy Parish
Benefits of Solar Energy:
- Reduce your costs for electricity with Photovoltaics and Solar Thermal Systems for heating homes
- Reduce costs with Solar Water Heaters
- Increase the value of your home by installing Solar Power Systems.
- Be able to live off the grid with solar.
- Enjoy relatively low maintenance
We’re counting on the Solar Energy Providers in British Columbia to bring about the change so urgently needed as far as meeting our power needs, from a sustainability viewpoint as well as an economical and practical angle. If the grid goes down, those with Solar Power will carry on!
BC Sustainable Solutions is happy to provide a list of anyone involved with providing Solar Power to the people of British Columbia and beyond. Click on the pins below to view the details of manufacturers, installers, and those selling products related to Solar Energy in BC.

Solar energy companies have increased in number since this map was first made in 2016 and updates are forthcoming. If you are a provider of solar energy in British Columbia, send us your details and we’ll add you to the map. We want to make it easy for people to have solar in any strength, shape, or size, so we will cover a large scope of the solar energy industry. Harnessing the abundant power of one of the earth’s best sustainable resources is getting more sophisticated as the industry grows, and produces smaller and smaller technology designed to capture and store solar energy. Be sure to follow World Solar Resources on Facebook for news on solar energy products, developments, and projects around the world that are helping renewal energy become a strong force in our lives on many levels.
Designers have created solar panels in an ever-expanding variety of forms, from giant revolving flower petals that open and close to glitter-sized solar cells or a thin film that can be carried around on one’s backpack. They even have clear glass panels so you don’t even realize that you are looking through a solar panel. Watch a video of tiny Transparent Solar Panels in action published on Science Nature’s Facebook Page.
Countries with huge populations such as China and India are embracing solar energy in a big way as they continue to install huge solar farms. It is especially heartening to see the vast expanses of solar farms being installed on both land and sea. Less developed areas of countries, normally without electricity, are lighting up, heating water tanks, and are benefitting in many ways thanks to solar energy innovations.
