Can a small town in rural Alberta go completely solar? Is it even possible? Not only is it possible, but it’s been done in Raymond, Alberta. Here’s your chance to hear this solar success story from the people behind the Raymond solar project.
Date: February 3, 2020; 7:00 – 8:30 pm
Presenter: Greg Robinson, Town of Raymond
Raymond, Alberta (pop 3,708) located 20 minutes east of Lethbridge made international news earlier this year by gaining the title of the first electrically net-zero town in North America! In partnership with ENMAX the town installed seven large solar arrays on various municipal buildings. See more press here.
Solar is gaining momentum in Alberta because of its increasing cost competitiveness against traditional coal and gas generation. It’s also an attractive option in Alberta because you get more bang for your buck than pretty much anywhere else on the planet.
Join Rural Routes to Climate Solutions and guest speaker Greg Robinson from the Town of Raymond for a lively presentation and discussion on the benefits of solar power for rural Alberta and how to do this in your town.
