Solar Powered Pump Jack for Calgary Energy Company
Sky Fire Energy installed Alberta’s first solar powered pump jack system in 2015. The solar PV (photo voltaic) system is powering oil wells and equipment, successful collaboration between fossil fuels and renewable energy.
Imaginea Energy Corp. is an energy company based in Calgary, Canada that produces Oil and Gas. But what’s really interesting is the way they go about it. They’re defying industry stereotypes by focusing on sustainability and community responsibility in everything they do. Not because they have to but because it’s the right thing to do and it’s the smart thing to do. They’re the oil company of the 21st century. They believe the energy industry can be a force for good. And they’re going to get there through collaboration, ingenuity and innovation. — Sky Fire Energy
