Solar Farm Technology
Is the technology we want to use reliable?
Solar farms are a proven technology. Solar photovoltaic (PV) arrays have come a long way in the past few years. They are less costly, more efficient and longer-lasting. Dozens of solar farms have already been built in Alberta. Several municipalities have already done their own analysis and decided the benefits outweigh the risks.
Does the City have any experience with solar power?
Here in St. Albert, we have already added a solar PV array to our Dez Liggett Transit Facility and our the Jack Kraft Public Works Facility sand storage shed. We are in the process of adding one of the province’s largest solar PV arrays to Servus Credit Union Place. These projects help the City save on energy costs, reduce its carbon footprint and support our commitment to environmental stewardship and sustainability.
