Benefits of Solar Power

 

Generating electricity from solar energy means your company uses less fossil fuel, thus reducing the amount of greenhouse gas emisions and pollution.  This is only one of the benefits to switching to solar, another major benefit is the financial benefit to your company.  Installing a solar panel system can assist with the reduction of your companies operating costs.

 

Recent government solar incentives are changing the way companies view installing a solar panel system.  The Alberta Government launched a $36 million rebate proram for new solar installation on commercial, residential and multi-residential buildings.  Some of the incentives will include partial grant for grid connected solar PV system.
