Thurs Feb 13 6 to 8pm Next Level Green Buildings will show you Albertan developments that are truly leading the energy transition. Edmonton is home to some of Canada’s most innovative buildings, architects and builders in Canada. Edmonton has the largest number of net zero homes in Canada. Yet, new policies, technology and standards are making net zero energy buildings just a piece of the green building landscape. Solar Alberta is all about using the sun to lead a low impact lifestyle. Green buildings allow us to do just that. Passive solar heating and solar photovoltaics are just some of the brilliant ways in which buildings are becoming healthier for the environment and people.

Thurs Mar 12 6 to 8pm Supercharge Your Solar Returns: Combining Rooftop Solar with an Electric Car Electric Vehicle (EV) drivers pay $3 for a full tank! Join us to learn how combining Solar PV with an EV is more economical than buying an Internal Combustion Engine (ICE) vehicle. Want to generate your own electricity? You can run your house and​ your car with solar energy. Many Alberta homes and businesses are creating their own electricity and exporting the excess into the grid. But now you can also power your car! A solar powered car has zero tailpipe emissions, zero source emissions and the cheapest fuel available. A solar system for transportation has an ROI of less than 5 years – much better than a house solar PV investment! Meet the Albertans who are living in solar powered houses and driving solar powered cars. Come see electric vehicles and meet their owners.  Hear about available incentives for solar and EV’s. @ NAIT, Shaw Theatre, 11762 106 St NW www.solaralberta.ca
