Event description

Description

This workshop is for church groups, community groups and anyone interested in developing a community solar project. The basics of how a utility-tie solar system works, and the steps needed to develop a project large or small, will be covered. Both Alberta’s existing Micro Generation law and Alberta’s new Small Scale Generation law along with its “Community Generation” sub-section will be explained. The workshop will include a Design Charrette to explore the possibilities of developing Community Benefit Agreements between solar developers and community groups.

Topics covered include:

    • How a solar grid-tied system works
    • System components
    • Characteristics of an ideal site and system design factors
    • Snow, hail, module degradation and other common concerns
    • Permits and interconnection agreements
    • Government programs and incentives update
    • The economics of solar PV
    • Options for larger “net-export” projects
    • The role of Community Benefit Agreements
    • Inspiring community examples

The workshop will be repeated at two locations. This event is a collaboration between the Solar Power Investment Cooperative of Edmonton, the Anglican Diocese of Edmonton and Energy Efficiency Alberta. There is no admittance fee. Participants must pre-register.
