The green revolution has truly arrived in Alberta. Our province has some of the most robust energy initiatives in the country, as well as more than enough sunlight to make solar power a viable option for clean energy generation.
At A. Clark Roofing & Siding LP., we have been providing residential and commercial roofing services for over 70 years, and we are among the top roofing companies in Edmonton for solar panel installation.
To help you decide whether to join the growing solar movement, let’s take a look at how the rest of the province is adapting this technology.
The Current State of Solar Energy in Alberta
Alberta has always been an energy hub and is continuing to lead the way in solar panels and renewable energy. For example, the Government of Alberta is currently offering rebates for commercial and residential solar array installations. The government is also embarking on a large-scale solar initiative to meet 55% of its annual electricity needs. At the same time, the City of Airdrie will be working on creating the largest rooftop solar array in Canada.
The green revolution has reached the commercial sector as well. The recently opened Simons location at Edmonton’s Londonderry Mall is using rooftop solar to meet 50% of its electricity needs. Likewise, many office building owners in Edmonton and throughout Alberta are considering solar power as a way to cut energy costs.
A recent analysis from the University of Alberta came to the conclusion that homeowners are also going to become increasingly more likely to consider solar as they see more solar power adapted in the public spaces around them.
The Edmonton roofers at A. Clark Roofing & Siding LP are ready to provide solar panels for homes and businesses that choose to make the switch.
Is Solar Power a Good Choice for My Home or Business?
There are many factors that determine if a property is suitable for solar panels. An ideal roof for a solar panel array faces South, has an inclination of 45- to 30-degrees, and has a largely un-shaded roof.
Keep in mind that you don’t necessarily need to tick every box on the list. An experienced Edmonton roofing company will be able to optimize the location and tilt of your solar panels to harvest the maximum amount of sunlight. If your home or business is located in sunny Alberta, you are already off to a good start.
