Matrix Energy Inc. is satisfied with and now vindicated by the decision issued October 31, 2011 by The Honourable Mr. Justice Scott of the Federal Court of Canada concluding that defendant, Matrix Energy Inc, "…did not infringe Conserval Engineering's Canadian Patent No 1,326,619 patent… by making, designing and selling its own MatrixAir™ system".


The Hon. Justice Scott ruled that because there is no infringement by Matrix Energy that the infringement action is dismissed with costs against the plaintiff. Similarly, The Hon. Justice Scott further ruled that the Trade-mark infringement and passing-off actions brought forward by Conserval are also both dismissed with costs against the plaintiffs.

In October 2007 Conserval Engineering launched a patent infringement suit against Matrix Energy Inc. Since that time Matrix Energy, has vehemently defended its right to offer an alternative transpired solar air heating product to the market. Says Brian Wilkinson, President of Matrix Energy Inc. "It is unfortunate that Conserval Engineering chose litigation rather than working together to foster the growth of this technology in this nascent industry for the benefit of all stakeholders. The decision of the Federal Court of Canada renews our motivation to continue to develop and market solar air heating systems that reduce conventional energy usage and Greenhouse Gas emissions in the commercial, industrial, institutional and agricultural sectors around the world."

GreenFasten™ solar panel roof mount hardware, watertight, USA made

The GreenFasten™ - GF1 system utilizes the patented watertight technology EcoFasten Solar® is known for. The flashing is fit with our EPDM rubber bushing and when used with a compatible EcoFasten Solar compression bracket (milled with countersink), a watertight seal is created, which protects the integrity of the roof. Requiring just a single fastener (lag bolt or self-drilling), GreenFasten provides the fastest install in the industry and will not void roofing manufacturer's warranties. Backed by IAPMO certification, GreenFasten delivers a mounting solution for all new or existing (retrofit) composition shingle roofs, and is the most cost-effective solution available. Like all of the solar roof mount solutions in our line of products, GreenFasten is made in the USA using recycled materials.
