Small Steps. Big Change.
Sturgeon County’s solar investment is the first of its kind in the region.
With 312 new state-of-the-art solar modules, our Protective Services Headquarters building has had an impactful makeover. Sturgeon County is inspired by the opportunity to demonstrate our commitment to make an impact in its municipality of 20,000 residents.
The dark coloured panels on the roof and on the building exterior will deliver significant benefits to our community including:
Production of 113,300 kWh per year – that’s enough to power 14.5 Alberta homes with electricity for one year!
Estimated annual reduction of 64.5 tonnes of GHG emissions
This bright idea has been made possible by grant funding from the Municipal Climate Change Action Center (MCCAC).
MACCAC works with community partners to secure a clean energy future.
Real Time Results.
With the help of our new solar panels, each day we are reducing our environmental footprint. We are proud of our progress and looking forward to a green future.
Residents can access real-time data on Sturgeon County’s solar array to see various data points including how much CO2 emissions have been saved.
