THE SOLARE STORY

Established in 2013, Solaré Canada Inc. is an award-winning energy solutions company empowering clients to understand their energy needs, reduce energy consumption, and experience the benefits of producing their own energy.

The Solaré team has developed and managed various innovative projects across Western Canada, advancing the fields of renewable energies, waste management, municipal development and engineering. Solaré was instrumental in delivering the Alberta Government’s Indigenous energy programs, including the Community Energy, Energy Retrofit, Solar and Green Employment programs, which saw the successful implementation of millions of dollars of investment into the province’s Indigenous communities. We’ve leveraged those achievements to expand into other markets and help clients meet sustainability targets and recover significant savings on energy costs.

With leading edge awareness for technical innovation and an emphasis on customer service, we will continue to evolve by challenging ourselves and the status quo, and maintain the highest standards of excellence and safety. We are ready to meet the rapid expansion of the energy conservation and solar fields, and will play a significant role in sustainable growth and the energy transition in Alberta and across Canada.

Bio Founder of Solaré Canada, Rik Kaminsky leads the corporation as President. His gift of cultivating powerful professional networks underlies the company’s success in meeting customer’s needs. He’s fostered and leveraged a lifetime of meaningful relationships to bring necessary expertise to the table and provide broader access to information, robust problem-solving capacity and a group of trusted people aligned in a shared vision.
Four years in the Canadian Navy as a sonar operator shaped a strong foundation for Rik’s personal discipline and values. The drive he gleaned from that experience would carry forward into an innovative career in various fields and start-ups. After years as an oil field operator gaining international experience in India and the US, Rik co-founded Drill-Tek, a technology firm manufacturing down-hole electronics for the directional drilling industry, a company that still thrives today.
In 2013, Rik co-founded Solaré Canada and transitioned to the renewable energy sector. He saw an opportunity to help change the way we use energy, knowing there was a better and more affordable way to power our world. Working to implement the Alberta Government’s Indigenous Climate Leadership Initiative immersed him in his indigenous culture and nurtured the traditional knowledge that supports a sustainable future.
Over the years, Rik’s positions as Chair and Director of the Spruce Grove and District Chamber of Commerce has allowed him to engage in and influence business at the municipal level and support policy creation for the Alberta Chamber of Commerce and Canadian Chamber of Commerce. This involvement has reinforced his belief in the strength of community and collaboration.
