Solar Krafte participated in the inception of the no-subsidy priced utility-scale solar power market in California, and helped to shape its development from the beginning.  Offering the most intense solar resource in Canada, southern Alberta offered a parallel and in 2015 Solar Krafte began development work there.  

Building large scale solar photovoltaic systems from greenfield concept through to commercial operation, and operation, grid-parity power pricing in the highest solar resource regions of the United States and Canada is Solar Krafte's exclusive focus and field of expertise.  Competing without price subsidies, directly against conventional generation, Solar Krafte's Prairie Sunlight family of 9 DG projects (256 MW_AC) and three Transmission projects (1020 MW_AC) have been brought about in partnership with Germany-based innogy SE, a subsidiary of RWE, one of the world's largest power companies.
