100-year Goals and Targets

Home Solar Program

Home Solar from ENMAX Energy Corporation* is your chance to lead Alberta into the future, and to take advantage of all the sunlight we get in our province. It provides homeowners with easier and more accessible options to generate their own renewable power by tapping into the energy of the sun. Another benefit of Home Solar from ENMAX Energy is that we make it easier for you with our comprehensive service - we handle everything from the home evaluation to installation and your dedicated Account Manager will be with you every step of the way. 

This project is possible thanks to funding from the Climate Change and Emissions Management (CCEMC) Corporation.  The CCEMC's mandate is “to establish or participate in funding initiatives that reduce GHG emissions or improve Alberta's ability to adapt to climate change.”

Since the launch of the program, ENMAX Energy has installed more than 500 kilowatts of micro-generation – including more than 175 homes in Calgary.  With more Albertans installing solar at home, the renewable energy industry in Alberta has a bright future ahead of it.

*Home Solar is brought to you by ENMAX Energy Corporation and ENMAX Generation Portfolio Inc.
