Solar energy works in any climate and the fuel (sunshine) is free. Edmonton's winter climate is well-suited to solar energy. With 2,300 hours of sun in an average year, our city is one of the sunniest cities in Canada.

Passive solar design can reduce energy consumption through good solar access, orientation of high-quality windows, careful selection of building materials that retain heat and proper building orientation and solar access.

Solar water heaters can be used to generate hot water for your home, while photovoltaic (PV) panels are used to produce electricity.

Find out more about home solar energy and heating in our Change Home For Climate Guide.
