Southern Alberta is the best place in Canada for generating energy from the sun. In the map above the redder areas, which represent solar potential, are concentrated in southern Alberta, Saskatchewan, and Manitoba.
Right now is a great time to start looking into solar energy systems. With energy bills forecast to rise in the next few years as user-paid transmission projects and utility upgrades are completed, shelter yourself from these rate hikes by generating your own energy right at home. With a properly sized system the savings you'll earn can pay for the installation in as little as 5 years!
