Considering installing solar panels at your home or business?
The Residential and Commercial Solar Program offers incentives to homeowners, businesses and non-profits that wish to install solar photovoltaic (PV) systems. Bolstered by other initiatives like the Alberta Municipal Solar Program and the On-Farm Solar PV Program, solar uptake has doubled in the province since 2015. Albertans are keen on solar, and this program keeps the momentum going!
If you are considering solar, finding out your solar potential is a great first step! Luckily, there are great free tools to help you do so.
If you live in the Calgary area, take a look at their online solar potential map which tells you the viability of solar as an energy source for your particular building. This easy to use tool is informative and can help you decide if solar is right for you.
