Event description

Description

***Note: This is tour is now sold out. Please join the waitlist, should additional spaces open. ***

Join us for a tour of Edmonton’s Meadows Fire Station to learn about the infrastructure, operations and solar energy project at this facility.

The City of Edmonton is committed to reducing greenhouse gas emissions and increasing energy efficiency of our buildings, as well as integrating renewable energy. Solar panels (photovoltaic cells) convert renewable energy from the sun into electricity, offsetting a portion of a building’s electricity usage resulting in reduced greenhouse emissions and utility costs.

Funded by the Alberta Solar Showcase Program, construction of Edmonton’s Meadows Fire Station included the installation of a 5 kW rooftop solar system. Registered guests will receive a facility tour to witness solar panels in action and learn about Fire Rescue Services' green initiatives.

Registration is required by Tuesday September 19, 2017. Please note that rooftop access is not permitted.

Green Energy Doors Open

This tour is being hosted as part of Green Energy Doors Open (GEDO) 2017. GEDO is a showcase of sustainable energy projects and success stories in provinces across Canada. For a listing of other events happening in Edmonton and Alberta, visit the Green Energy Doors Open website.
