Through our supplier, ATUM Energy Services, the Edmonton roofers at A. Clark Roofing & Siding LP. can provide solar panel installation for as low as $2.50 per installed watt. Depending on the overall size of your solar panel array, the total installation cost may range anywhere from $5,000 to $25,000. The potential for long-term savings and available government grants and incentives can often help to lower the total cost of a solar panel array installation considerably.
Available Government Grants and Incentives for Solar Panels
The Alberta Government has sought to make solar panel installation more affordable for homeowners, business owners, and non-profit organizations through its Residential and Commercial Solar Program. This program provides financial rebates for the lesser of $10,000 or 30% of the system cost for homeowners and the lesser of $500,000 or 25% of the total system cost for businesses or non-profit organizations.
The Community Sustainability Grants provided by EcoCity Edmonton can also make it more affordable for certain organizations to install solar panels on their facilities. These grants are intended for registered non-profits, community leagues, schools, registered charities, and area First Nations.

Alberta is a fantastic location for the harnessing of solar energy. Our clear skies, relatively few days of precipitation and overcast, and long summer days combine to give Alberta greater access to solar resources than the other provinces. In fact, Alberta has even greater minimum daily solar resources than Germany, the world’s current solar power leader.
