What You'll Learn

This presentation is for those of you that want to know the truth about solar-photovoltaics or more precisely grid-connected photovoltaics (solar electricity).

We will dispel all the un-truths you’ve heard about solar, like that it’s expensive, it doesn’t work well in our climate, we don’t have enough sunlight etc, etc. In fact you will learn that the exact opposite of everything you heard about solar is, indeed, the case. Like how grid-connected PV is in fact the cheapest form of electrical generation in Alberta (we have the numbers to prove it), how it works better here in our climate than in desert nations, and how Alberta has the best solar resource in Canada and one of the best in the world.

You will learn that all over the world there is a solar revolution going on even in Nations, States, Provinces, Municipalities that have only 1/3 the solar resource that we have and how residents, citizens, home owners, building owners, landowners, farmers, ranchers, investors are making thousands, tens-of-thousands, hundreds-of-thousands, even millions of dollars per year by installing grid-connected PV systems or investing in solar. Yet, here in Alberta, where we have one of the best solar resources in the world, there is no support like there is almost everywhere else in the world.

Find out how you can reap the rewards of photovoltaics whether you plan on having a system installed for you, investing in the industry, working in the industry (via Grid Works Energy Training Centre) or becoming part of a solar photovoltaic co-op investing group.
