GeoSmart Energy partners with Innovative Air Solutions

GeoSmart Energy is diversifying its renewable energy product line to include solar energy options thanks to a formal partnership with green energy solutions provider Innovative Air Solutions Inc. GeoSmart Energy says the agreement between the two Canadian companies will soon give homeowners in Ontario—and ultimately across Canada—access to the latest solar technology available on the market today.


“GeoSmart Energy has earned a reputation for offering consumer-oriented products that are cost-effective, energy-efficient and environmentally friendly,” said Chad Brezynskie, vice president, Sales & Marketing, GeoSmart Energy. “Aligned with our company's strategic business plan, this partnership with Innovative Air Solutions further solidifies our commitment to deliver innovative product offerings while expanding renewable energy options for residential projects.”


Innovative Air Solutions will private label GeoSmart's Solar Harmony product line that will be offered to GeoSmart's network of over 300 dealers across Canada to reach the residential market. GeoSmart Energy will also utilize its training academy to provide its dealers, interested homeowners and industry stakeholders with training and hands-on knowledge sharing.


“This is a win-win situation for both companies,” said Geoffrey Smith, CEO, Innovative Air Solutions. “GeoSmart Energy's growing dealer network, training acumen and considerable experience in renewable energy make them an ideal partner to help get our solar energy products to market, while also meeting their desire to offer homeowners more diversified green energy solutions.”


Innovative Air Solutions' solar power system consists of thin film PV solar panels and an inverter. Unlike conventional solar power systems, GeoSmart says the Solar Harmony Thin Film panels flush mount to the roof, maximize available space, and continue to generate solar energy, even in partially shaded conditions, thanks to their massive parallel configuration. Given their capacity to capture indirect sunlight, the system's thin film solar panels offer the latest in solar technology, generating a 10-20% higher energy yield than the more traditional mono-crystalline panels, says the company. The roof becomes a virtual power plant, harvesting energy from the sun. Leveraging extra low voltage (ELV) inverter technology, GeoSmart says its Solar Harmony Inverter boosts performance and sets a new benchmark for system safety. It is among the few inverters available today that can withstand temperatures as low as -40°C, says the company.


“The innovative massive parallel design of our Solar Harmony power system is not too unlike the parallel underground geothermal loop design used with our geothermal installations. It's an approach that works effectively in both applications,” said Brezynskie. “This is a system that has tremendous potential for a homeowner's return on investment.”
