New changes to Edmonton’s solar incentive program just went into effect: Everything you need to know

We clarify how this affects eligibility and rebate amounts for multi-unit residential buildings, new homes, mobile homes, and secondary suites.


The Canadian city of Edmonton, Alberta, has one of the best solar conditions across all of Canada. The city averages 2300 hours of sun per year—making it one of the most efficient locations to install solar panels.

To take advantage of this, the city offers many options for those who choose to install solar panels. The city's solar incentive program, "Change Homes for Climate," offers excellent benefits that are easy to access.

Under the program, homeowners can claim a rebate of $0.40/watt to help cover the installation's upfront cost, which translates into roughly 15% total savings.
