    It already is. According to Natural Resources Canada’s CanmetENERGY, the Canadian leader in clean energy research and technology development, Canada leads the world in solar air collector development and commercialization. Canada has a very large potential for solar energy use and it has excellent solar resources. Since 2007, there are an estimated 544,000 m2 of solar collectors operating in Canada. They are primarily unglazed plastic collectors for pool heating (71%) and unglazed perforated solar air collectors for commercial building air heating (26%), delivering about 627,000 GJ of energy and displacing 38,000 tonnes of CO2 annually.
