We're excited by the role that solar plays in Alberta, and we're currently working on programs to take advantage of what the future holds.

If you want to be among the first people to know about these programs, please take a moment and tell us about yourself.

​Because the sun always shines on possibility

At ENMAX Energy*, we've seen the potential in solar as an alternative energy source for a long time.

Albertans from across our sunny province have used our solar installations to produce over 6.5 million kWh of renewable electricity, while also helping to produce a brighter future for all of us.

Solar and your home

Here are some basic guidelines that can help you determine if solar is the right choice for your home.

  • A south-facing sloped roof is the ideal, but we have installed on east- and west-facing roofs (don't forget about your garage)
  • Your roof is in satisfactory condition
  • Your roof receives direct sunlight with limited shading
  • Your roof is not shared with another home (four-plex or side-by-side)
  • Architectural controls in your community don't prohibit solar modules
  • You own your home or property

Unfortunately, we’re not able to install solar on condominiums, unless your board approves. If your condo board is interested in solar, please contact us at 1-855-514-3279 toll free in Alberta.

How much electricity can I generate?

It's up to you, and the roof space you have available.

You can install enough solar modules to produce up to 100 per cent of your net annual energy consumption according to Alberta's Micro-Generation Regulation (MGR).

And whether you offset all or a little of your electricity, it all helps decrease your consumption of electricity from the grid.

Connecting your solar energy system
to the grid

If you already have solar panels set up, or will have your system soon, ENMAX Power Corporation can help understand the next steps to connect with the grid.
