Supporting consumer efforts in Alberta

Alberta has implemented a new regulation that will allow homeowners and businesses to generate their own environmentally friendly electricity and receive credit for any power sent into the electricity grid that they do not use. "This new policy will support efforts by consumers to participate in the development of renewable and alternative energy," says energy minister Mel Knight. The program covers generators up to 1 MW in size. Installations less than 150 kW will be paid retail energy rates for power they feed on to the grid, while those between 150 kW to 1 MW in size will receive the hourly power pool price.
