Meet The Face Behind ​CM SunEra

By CM SunEra |


I’m Cristian Martuneac , proud owner of CM SunEra.

I look forward to sharing my story. I hope that you will enjoy getting to know me better.

I was always fascinated with finding ways to obtain the energy we use in sustainable ways, so I studied electronics and then got an engineering degree in mechanics and started working with solar energy systems since 2007. In 2009, using all the knowledge and experience I had at the time, I participated in a project initiated by the Government of Alberta and designed a solar hot water system optimized for the cold weather conditions we have here in Alberta. I got awarded from over 200 projects. This system was installed at a residence in Richmond Park and continues to work.

 Over the last couple of years of being in the industry, I’ve witnessed how solar energy systems have gradually become more affordable. Their price points have scaled down considerably. For example, in 2009, the price for an average grid-connected PV system installation was around $15 per watt and now is as low as less than $3 per watt (at my company). On top of this, our customer can get back up to 30% from the price of installation through the Government of Alberta's Energy Efficiency Alberta Residential and Commercial Solar Program.

At CM SunEra we make sure that on every installation - regardless of size or location - we pay maximum attention to every detail in order to set up a system that will last and perform efficiently for a very long time. Our company has been successful because we possess the drive to make every system we install the most efficient configuration and properly done work for that particular location. Knowing that we have installed a solar system for our customers the same way I would do for my own home gives me immense satisfaction as I know I have done my job well.

For me, every new project is exciting, especially at the design stage. This is when I have to put together all the electrical, mechanical and environmental data specific to each location in order to find the optimal, most efficient and cost-effective solution for each installation. I enjoy seeing the smile on my client’s faces when they notice their power meter turning backward!

As an individual, I believe what sets me apart from the others is my honesty and assurance that we will do a perfect job every time.

When I am not at work, I love hiking and skiing in the beautiful mountains in our area.

I have enjoyed sharing my story about the things which matter to me and how they influence the way I do business.
