New Opportunities are Making Solar Accessible for Everyone
Thursday, February 7, 2019 - 7:00pm to 9:00pm


Does solar system ownership have to be limited to home and business owners that have suitable sites? Alberta’s new Community Generation Program has the potential to allow widespread access to solar. Why can’t everyone reap the benefits in a solar investment? Solar co-ops, neighborhood owned projects, school systems funded by a pool of parents, teachers and alumni, Indigenous projects owned by band members, congregations investing in church systems; the possibilities are endless. How do community generation projects work? What is available now?
