The Government of Alberta is investing $15 million from the Climate Leadership Plan to install more solar panels on schools. The Solar for Schools Program provides financial rebates to Alberta Public School Authorities who install solar photovoltaic systems on existing school facilities or land in their jurisdiction and complete a student education initiative as part of the project.

The program provides funding to install rooftop solar panels with rebates of up to $1.50 per watt on the solar energy generated to offset the school’s energy costs. Increasing the amount of solar energy generated by schools supports Alberta’s target of 30 per cent renewable electricity by 2030 by helping Alberta transition to an electricity system that is cleaner, reliable and more sustainable. 

This program will be available to public, Catholic, francophone and charter school authorities for schools that have not received Alberta Education’s Solar Technology Systems grants.
