Energy Efficiency Alberta Announces Launch of Residential and Commercial Solar Program

Posted on:

Energy Efficiency Alberta has announced a new program to help homeowners, businesses, and non-profits overcome the high costs of solar energy by offering rebates for solar PV system installation.

This program will cut solar installation costs by up to 30% for residences (or the lesser of $10,000), and up to 25% for businesses and non-profits (or the lesser of $500,000).  Meanwhile, this program will create roughly 900 jobs in Alberta’s solar industry and reduce greenhouse gas emissions by about half a million tonnes.

The program offers a $0.75/watt rebate for residential, commercial, and non-profit solar PV systems of up to 15 Kw for residences, and up to 5 MW for commercial and non-profits.
