Alberta Solar Calculator

The Action Centre thanks Lakeland College Renewable Energy and Conservation for their support on this project.

This calculator helps project planners evaluate the cost implications of proposed grid connected solar PV projects by comparing them to purchasing electricity from Alberta’s grid. This tool estimates yearly cash flow with, and without, a solar PV system and compares the total net present value of different options over a chosen analysis period. Before you begin you will need to collect information about your project.

The conclusions drawn from of this calculator are highly dependent on the user input. It is the user’s responsibility to ensure that all inputs are adjusted correctly. Predicting future financial returns is always complex and depends on many unknown or uncontrollable circumstances. Please use this calculator only as a guide.
