Here Comes the Sun: Canada’s Solar Industry
Solar is starting to shine in Canada. Five utility scale solar projects have been announced in Alberta so far this year. Residential solar should benefit from newly announced federal government incentives.
This week Nicholas Gall, the Director of Distributed Energy Resources at the Canadian Renewable Energy Association (CanREA) joins the podcast.
Here are some of the questions Peter and Jackie asked Nicholas: What is the size of the solar market in Canada now? Why is Alberta getting all of these new solar projects? Why not other provinces? How will future costs and technology evolve? What are the federal government’s incentives for residential solar? And, finally, should Peter install solar panels on his roof?
