In 2020, the Laurier Heights Community League board began work on reducing C02 emissions and energy consumption by installing a solar panel project on the roof of the Laurier Heights Community League Hall. A total of 102 solar panels were installed and have now been connected to the grid (40.8 kW DC system size). This system will see an annual production of 38,189 kWh of energy and annual emissions reductions of 22 tCO2e.
The Laurier Heights Community League solar installation was made possible by taking advantage of both the City of Edmonton’s Community League Infrastructure Program (CLIP) and the Alberta Municipal Solar Program.
The system will produce enough electricity to power the equivalent of 3 average homes, offsetting about 22 tonnes of greenhouse gas emissions annually, equivalent to removing 6 internal combustion engine passenger vehicles driven for a year off the road.
“It is exciting to have been a part of bringing this project to the community! We anticipate that this array will provide us with a net zero electrical consumption going forward.”– George Stepney, Facilities Team Lead, Laurier Heights
