Communities, organizations and individual Albertans across the province are exploring small-scale electricity generation as a way of bringing revenue, jobs, training and other economic, social and environmental benefits to their communities.While many Albertans already participate in micro-generation projects to provide electricity for their own use, electricity developed through community generation projects is connected to the province’s distribution system. Participation in community generation projects gives Albertans the ability to produce renewable energy and generate revenue by selling electricity to the grid. Stop by this open house in Canmore hosted by the Government of Alberta to learn more.
