No community and no project is too big or too small to make a change.
Over 25% of Alberta’s municipalities have participated in our programs. These municipalities have applied for funding to implement energy-saving initiatives and reduce greenhouse gas emissions in their communities—and you can too!

Alberta Municipal Solar Program
City of Edmonton
As part of the MCCAC’s Alberta Municipal Solar Program (AMSP), the Queen Alexandra Community League in Edmonton installed a 7.8 kW solar PV system on the roof of the Queen Alexandra Community League Hall. The project was completed in August 2017.
Community Leagues across the City of Edmonton are tapping into the power of the sun and green energy savings. Six leagues completed building retrofits and installed solar PV arrays to meet their energy needs. The projects are expected to yield cost savings of $8,891/year and GHG reductions of 55 tonnes/year.
Red Deer conducted a multi-facility retrofit in 2014, which included five community recreation centres and arenas. With annual cost savings expected to be $54,098, the project will pay itself back in only 3 years. The retrofit will also save the City 2,482 GJ of energy and 279 tonnes of greenhouse gases annually.
The City of Brooks retrofitted their City Hall in 2012, making upgrades to their interior lighting. Their modest investment of $1,664 is expected to net an exceptional return with a payback period of only 10 months.
The City of St. Albert's Akinsdale and Kinex arenas were retrofitted in 2013, with energy conservation measures focused on the building's heating and automation systems. The $63,650 project will pay itself back in only 2.6 years, with annual savings of $14,629, 1,520 GJ of energy, and 115 tonnes of emissions.
