Solar energy works in any climate and the fuel (sunshine) is free. Edmonton's winter climate is well-suited to solar energy. With 2,300 hours of sun in an average year, our city is one of the sunniest cities in Canada.

Check out this Tiny Explanation infographic on Solar In Edmonton.

The City of Edmonton is pleased to offer an incentive for homeowners to put a solar energy system on their roof.

The Edmonton incentive only applies to residential properties, not industrial or commercial properties.
