Residential Solar & Commercial Program


RENEWABLE ENERGY—NOW MORE AFFORDABLE.

The Residential and Commercial Solar Program offers rebates to homeowners, businesses and non-profits that 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!

What will the impact be?

By 2019, the program is expected to:

  • Support the creation of 900 jobs in Alberta’s solar sector
  • Cut solar installation costs by up to 30 per cent for residences
  • Cut solar installation costs by up to 25 per cent for businesses and non-profits
  • Reduce greenhouse gas emissions in the province by about half a million tonnes—the equivalent of taking 100,000 passenger vehicles off the road

This program is just one more example of Alberta taking the lead on energy efficiency and renewable energy, which will protect pocketbooks, make life more comfortable, create good jobs, and help diversify our economy.
