Municipalities across the province are investing in renewable energy, harnessing the power of the sun to produce safe, clean energy for their communities. The province is supporting these investments through the Alberta Municipal Solar Program.
Climate change is a complex issue and it will take some time to see the full benefits of decisions being made and actions being taken today. That said, just 18 months after Alberta started to tackle the issue, we are seeing tangible results.

Thanks to initiatives like the Alberta Indigenous Solar Program and On-Farm Solar PV Program, solar uptake has doubled in the province since 2015. The Residential and Commercial Solar Program keeps that momentum going.

Reality: Albertans will be able to participate in the program only if they contact Energy Efficiency Alberta directly and make an appointment.
