Edmonton Solar FAQ
How does solar power work?
Solar panels work by converting the sun’s rays into usable energy. To get a little more technical, photovoltaic cells absorb the sun’s energy and convert it to DC energy. For maximum exposure to the sun, solar panels are typically installed on the roof of your home or business. The energy collected can then be used to power your home’s appliances, lightbulbs, and more.
If solar panels generate energy that isn’t used in your home, it’s exported to your local power grid via your electrical meter. Your energy company will then credit you automatically for this excess electricity. So going solar means that you’re able to save money on electricity, help protect the environment, and potentially make money depending on your consumption.
How much does solar energy cost in Edmonton?
The overall cost of solar energy depends on how much it costs to install the solar panels on your home or business, and how much energy you’re able to generate.
The cost of installing solar panels in Edmonton varies based on your property, so an estimate is required. The installation cost will vary based on the size, pitch, and condition of your roof. In some cases, upgrades may be required to your electrical system in order to make it compatible with solar energy generation.
On top of the cost of solar panels themselves, other costs can include electrical equipment, inverters, labour, and any permits required. You may also be able to take advantage of local, provincial, or national solar incentives and rebates to reduce the costs of installation.
It’s also important to factor in the return on investment (ROI) of your solar system. In other words, in addition to the cost of installation, you should also factor in how much money you’ll make or save from the investment.
The amount of energy your solar system is able to generate over its lifetime is dependent on the size and pitch of your roof, how far Edmonton currently is from the sun, and how much sunlight exposure your roof gets.

What solar incentives and rebates are available in Edmonton?
There are currently three solar incentive and rebate programs available in Edmonton.
Through the Change Homes for Climate – Solar Program, the City of Edmonton is offering Edmontonians $0.40/watt towards the cost of installing a solar system, which they approximate at 15% of the cost of going solar.
The City of Edmonton also has a Building Energy Benchmarking Program, available for owners and operators of buildings of over 10,000 square feet. Through the program, building owners can access up to $10,000 of financial incentives per building to offset the cost of an energy audit. This is a yearly program that typically has a November application deadline.
The City of Edmonton also offers the EcoCity Grant, available to nonprofits, community leagues, schools, and charities that want to create positive environmental change.For more information about provincial and national incentives, check out our Solar Incentives page.
What type of solar financing is available in Edmonton?
Alberta is one of the best provinces for installing solar thanks to strong financing available. PACEALberta offers the Clean Energy Improvement Program (CEIP)—a renewable energy financing program in the pilot stages that pays you back based on an assessment of your property tax bill.
What is involved in a free solar assessment?
To complete your free solar assessment, we only need three things:
- A recent energy bill: Your energy bill will allow us to model your recent energy consumption to design a solar system that’s aligned to your energy usage. This will allow us to provide accurate pricing.
- A picture of your electrical panel: A photo of your electric panel allows us to know if a new solar panel system is compatible with your home’s current electrical infrastructure. In some cases, an upgrade will be required, which will impact the cost.
- Your home or business address: Using your address, we can use our in-house software and Google imaging to design a solar system that works for your property—taking into account factors like roof space, potential sunlight and shading structures, and optimal panel tilt.
