The future has arrived in Canada’s oil patch with Alberta’s commitment to solar energy beginning with municipalities, and homeowners preparing to access the program. In a May 2017 article the Edmonton Journal noted that the city’s climate numbers from Environment Canada showed there are now 38 fewer days with a minimum temperature below freezing.
In response city officials are working to model the new hazards Edmonton faces and propose ways to mitigate the damage while overseeing the efficiency and renewable-energy strategy. That strategy includes the Municipal Climate Change Action Centre who will give matching grants to upgrade boilers and replace windows, and help fund new solar installations through Edmonton’s municipal solar program, while other programs are aimed at reducing citizen’s energy needs.
This includes a new building policy that would commit Edmonton to putting at least one percent of each building project’s capital budget into on-site energy generation such as solar panels. Edmonton’s energy goals also involve the community, aiming to help residents reduce their energy needs and this fall Edmonton will launch its education and marketing efforts as part of this strategy, rolling out a series of advertisements and other messages to help people know what first steps they should consider. In June, Edmonton is launching a home-labelling program so people selling their homes can show the value of their energy upgrades to buyers.
