As part of the MCCAC’s Alberta Municipal Solar Program (AMSP), the Town of Banff installed an 100.3 kW solar PV system at the Waste Transfer Station. The project was completed in 2020.

“This shift to renewable energy sources is another way Banff is striving to be an environmental leader, to help protect this special place in the mountains, while reducing our global carbon footprint. Gradually shifting to renewable energy provides immediate savings on electricity, helping to save taxpayers’ money, reduce greenhouse gas emissions and contribute to future clean transformations in the community.”

Karen Sorensen, Mayor of Banff

“The Town of Banff has outlined considerable goals for a long-term transition to renewable energy and solar PV is a key enabling technology to help achieve this. The completion of the Waste Transfer Station solar PV array is a measurable advancement towards our renewable energy goals.”

Michael Hay, Manager of Environment and Sustainability
