With a solar power system, you can avoid frequent rate hikes associated with fossil fuels. At an average utility rate of $0.05 per kWh, you’ll save $100 in the first year.
Alberta’s micro-generation regulation allows customers to generate their own renewable energy to power their home, farm, or business and send the excess electricity back to the province’s electricity grid for a credit.
Solar power is one of the cleanest sources of energy because it does not emit any pollution when it is produced or consumed, so it can help avoid carbon dioxide (CO2) and other air pollutant emissions associated with conventional electricity.
