Airdrie’s new municipal rooftop solar installation now operational
AIRDRIE, AB – 3,800 solar panels have been installed on top of Airdrie’s Genesis Place Recreation Centre.
It is expected to meet up to 30% of the facility’s energy needs and will reduce their annual operating costs by up to $80,000.
“Airdrie is proud to be leading the way in Canada with respect to the generation of solar energy through municipal infrastructure,” says Mayor Peter Brown. “This project is good for Airdrie residents and the environment and is an incredible example of what we can accomplish when different levels of government work together with great organizations like ENMAX towards a common goal.”
