Gordon Howell has a Bachelor of Science (BSc) in Electrical Engineering from the University of Alberta in 1975 and has been exclusively working in the solar industry for 40 years. He co-founded Howell Mayhew Engineering in Edmonton in 1985 and has worked on solar PV system design, development, consulting, performance measurement and analysis, and PV standards development.

Over the years, he has worked with the Government of Alberta, electricity regulators, utilities, and municipalities to identify and eliminate the barriers to grid-connected solar PV systems in order to help Alberta get ready for inexpensive wide-scale solar electricity. This time has now come!
