How it all started.
Rooted in Sustainability
Born and raised in Alberta, Curtis Craig, P.Eng, ME, and President of Inferno Solar, was introduced to sustainability at an early age. Working on his grandparent’s farm throughout his youth, Curtis learned first-hand about wildlife habitat preservation and responsible land management practices from his grandfather, a recognized Habitat Steward who dedicated and maintained over 50 acres of land bordering the Red Deer River for wildlife habitat conservation.
Experienced in Electrical Engineering
As Curtis grew older, he took after his father and began his career as an electrician, eventually progressing to Master Electrician and Professional Electrical Engineer. Within this field, Curtis’ work experiences ranged from installing solar panels on industrial pipeline instrumentation buildings in some of the most remote areas of Alberta, to designing solar systems for schools and other major city infrastructure projects throughout the province.
Committed to Advancing Alberta’s Energy Sector
These combined experiences, values, and passions are what motivated Curtis to launch Inferno Solar, which has since grown to a specialized team of solar industry leaders who are committed to advancing Alberta’s energy sector with sustainable solar resources.
Offering energy solutions that reduce costs and emissions.
To provide solutions – not problems.

To provide uncompromising quality and excellent service to our partners and their customers, that we will continue to grow and be successful in our
Alberta is the 2nd-most sunniest province in Canada.
The energy output of solar panels impacted by snow was measured by a study at NAIT as being less than 5% per year.
Solar panels are designed to withstand 1-inch diameter hail, falling at speeds up to 83km/h.
We cover 100% of your solar needs.
