The new solar system on the roof of Elevation Place should be operational by the end of September. The system is the largest in the Bow Valley, consisting of 931 panels and producing 372.4 kW of power. The system offsets approximately 24% of the power usage at Elevation Place. This system is an important step towards reducing the town's Green House Gas emissions by 50% in 2030.
The Town will be receiving more than $175,000 in rebate funding from the Alberta Municipal Solar Program (AMSP) for the solar photovoltaic system. The AMSP is a program through the Municipal Climate Change Action Centre.
