Well it’s certainly been a busy summer so far. With the Alberta government’s incentive programs and the growing interest in renewable energy, this is proving to be an amazing year. Solarwind is one of the leaders in watts installed in the Lethbridge region with over 300KW installed this year to date.
The town of Raymond and the Villages of Stirling & Warner have jumped on board in a big way and are installing solar on their municipal buildings to try and get their communities to net zero. Solarwind and Enmax Corp are helping make this happen. We are seeing that the trend in agriculture solar has spiked considerably this year with more and more farmers realizing the impact on their bottom line.
This from Efficiency Alberta:
“The Residential and Commercial Solar Program offers incentives to homeowners, businesses and non-profits that wish to 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!”
Solarwind has several big projects on the go with a 200KW farm just outside of Warner utilizing both roof top and ground mount solar in its design. We are working with a major producer to get their operation green and clean and are in the middle of several residential projects both in Lethbridge and surrounding communities. We are also starting the County of Lethbridge building in downtown Lethbridge which is right across the street from Lethbridge city hall. This install will utilize 200 – LG400 solar panels in an 88KW system. These are things to be excited about!!
It’s been a banner year for the solar industry in Alberta and Solarwind Renewable Energy has played a major part in southern Alberta’s solar footprint. With our partner Enmax Power Corp, we are leading the charge in our community.
