Randall is indigenous (Cree, Iroquois Metis), born in Fort McMurray and raised in and out of the bush with a strong traditional upbringing. He found a passion for solar in the late 1990’s while working in the Oilsands Industry. Convinced, even then, that it was going to be a rapidly growing industry.

A Master Electrician and a Power Engineering Technologist, for the last 20 years, Gridworks Energy has been involved in countless Solar PV projects, Indigenous community solar and training projects, Electric Vehicle infrastructure projects and professional solar design and installation training programs throughout Canada.

One of the first few CSA-recognized solar design and construction instructors in the country, he continues to carry that passion to pass on his knowledge and experience.
