About Jason

Jason Sparaga spent 15 years in investment banking before he and his business partner Andrew Clark began their entrepreneurial journey into the renewables, power services and utilities industry. With the launch of the Green Energy and Economies Act in 2009, Jason and Andrew seized the opportunity to build their business, starting with Spark Solar and initially focusing on community and cooperative power. Challenges within the regulated market led Jason and Andrew to refocus their efforts on the burgeoning commercial market and in 2012 they began a series of acquisitions (6 in all) across all segments of the power services and solutions market to create Spark Power Corp.

With 500 team members across 17 offices, Spark Power Corp is challenging and disrupting traditional power sector business models. Jason and Andrew have recently initiated a strategic plan to grow the company across North America to 10 times its current size and aim to reinvent the power utility model within the distributed and deregulated grid of the future.
