The Alberta Municipal Solar Program, a project of the Municipal Climate Change Action Centre (MCCAC), provides rebates to municipalities to install solar PV systems.  In partnership with the Pembina Institute, Solar Energy Society of Alberta, and Alberta Economic Development and Trade, the MCCAC has recently published an excellent resource for municipal planners and decision-makers, to accelerate the deployment of Solar PV in Alberta communities.

The Solar-Friendly Municipalities Toolkit provides guidance for several key steps involved in getting solar energy installed and generating electricity in your community.
