The Growing Forward 2 on-farm solar photovoltaics program is a sub-program of the Government of Alberta's on-farm energy management program. This solar incentive provides funding for solar installations on Alberta farms. Reduce operating costs, reduce carbon emissions and reduce your environmental impact.
The solar photovoltaic system must be:
1.Grid Connected (grid-tied), not off-grid [Will be installed by Kuby Energy as such]
2.Approved under the Micro-Generation Regulation [Kuby Energy handles this completely]
3.Positioned to optimize the sun and minimize shading [Kuby Energy does this for all projects]
4.Have manufacturer warranties on the solar panels (modules), racking, and inverters [Comes standard with all Kuby Energy solar installations]
5.Purchased after April 1, 2017
Different rebate structures are available depending on who installs your solar power system and whether you have had an energy assessment or not.
Solar PV System Size <100kW: $0.75/W up to 35% of eligible system costs
Solar PV System Size 100.01 - 150kW: $0.56/W up to 27% of eligible system costs
Growing Forward 2 Solar Grant Maximum: 150kW or $100,000.
If you are a resident of Alberta with a Distribution Rate Class of Farm, Irrigation, Grain Drying or equivalent, you are eligible for On Farm Solar PV funding. If you have an Electrical Distribution Rate Class that is Farm or equivalent, you are eligible for On Farm Solar PV funding.
