The Town of Raymond

Project: 1,098kw distributed solar network
Average IRR: 6.5%
GHG Emissions Avoided: Equal to 800 tons per year

Raymond is located just south of the City of Lethbridge, within an hours drive of the US border.  One of the founding “Mormon Trail” settlements, Raymond enjoys excellent year-around sunshine. In 2018, it flipped the switch on over 1MW of distributed solar energy installations across their entire municipal building stock. The investment, arranged with Enmax, makes Raymond one of the first municipalities in North America to be 100% energy net-zero and carbon-neutral.
