Learn to produce solar electricity

Do you want to learn how to produce your own solar electricity and hook up to Alberta’s grid as a solar micro-generator?

The City of Edmonton is partnering with the Solar Energy Society of Alberta to host a number of workshops to help Edmontonians learn how to produce their own clean, renewable power. This four-hour workshop will cover solar electric system equipment, how to hire a solar contractor, economics and more.

Date: Saturday, January 14, 2017
Time: 1 p.m. – 5 p.m.
Location: CN Theatre, MacEwan University, 105 Street and 104 Avenue

Additional workshops are being held on February 18, March 18, and April 29.

The City is also working on a plan to make it easier for Edmontonians to install solar on their rooftops by streamlining the permitting process and removing as many barriers as possible.

Edmonton’s Community Energy Transition Strategy helps to make Edmonton an energy sustainable city and includes actions to increase renewable energy generation and reduce greenhouse gases across the city.

The Solar Energy Society of Alberta advances the awareness, understanding and use of solar energy as well as other renewable energy and conservation technologies.
