Canada’s largest rooftop solar power installation will soon be growing pot in Alberta, say its operators.

And Calgary-owned Enmax and the province’s carbon tax are playing integral roles in the buzz surrounding fledgling Freedom Cannabis’ federally licensed operation with 4,574 solar panels covering 115,000 square feet of the facility’s roof.

“It’s exciting, it sets us apart as a leader and we’re happy about that,” said Troy Dezwart, co-founder of the business located at Acheson, 20 kilometres west of Edmonton.

Enmax is providing the panels and servicing, while the $2.6-million price tag is being subsidized by a $1-million grant from Energy Efficiency Alberta, the sustainable power initiative created by the province’s former NDP government.
