Alberta has installed its first 17 MW solar farm! The Largest in Western Canada!

Join us before the event for networking at Solar Drinks 5-7pm.

The Alberta Electric System Operator’s Connection Queue presently has proposals for over 4 Gigawatts of solar generating capacity!

Round 1 of the Renewable Energy Program (REP) auction in 2017 successfully delivered nearly 600 MW of wind generation at a weighted average bid price of $37/MWh – setting a new record in Canada. Large solar projects in the US, India, and Chile are coming in with very competitive pricing. What is the potential for large solar project pricing here? What are the short and long term ratepayer benefits of Alberta’s embracing of big solar? Want to watch from home?
