Solar Energy

The City of Calgary is working to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, manage energy use, prepare for, and adapt to the impacts of a changing climate.

Promoting renewable energy sources, encouraging energy efficiency, and supporting the construction of green buildings, all work together to make Calgary more environmentally friendly.

Solar energy is one type of renewable energy and we encourage Calgarians to consider solar as an energy options for home, work or both! Other types of renewable energy include geoexchange heat systems, green roofs and wind turbines.

With an average of 2,396 hours of sunlight each year, Calgary is an ideal city for the use of solar energy.
