Our Management Team

Derek Power


Derek launched Power Networks in 2008 with a vision of creating a leader in the Canadian solar and renewable space. He built a company that prioritizes the customer with quality solar installations and innovative renewable concepts.

His greatest asset is his laugh.  It is truly infectious and it’s difficult not to hear echoing across the job site or busy conference centres.  His positive attitude really makes the job easy while navigating complicated situations and that is something you can not learn in school. 

Derek graduated Dalhousie University for Sociology and Anthropology in Halifax, Nova Scotia and also taught North American culture at the prestigious Waijiao Xueyuan China Foreign Affairs University in Beijing, China.

He was also a staple volunteer at Hope Cottage Soup Kitchen in Halifax, NS for many years!
