Village of Hill Spring completes solar project August 2020

The Village of Hill Spring Council began inquiring and entertaining the idea of installing a municipal solar PV system in 2018. Generating solar energy locally would provide savings on electricity which is a benefit to all tax payers as it helps to reduce Village expenses.

 

On April 28, 2020 council approved the construction of  a 120KW solar energy array, to be built by Solar Seekers Inc on a small parcel of land on the east side of the Village. The project was completed in late August of 2020 and is now producing electricity. It is expected to generate as much electricity as is used by municipal operations over the course of a year and save the Village approximately $30,697 on electric bills, at current utility rates, in the first year.

 

The solar project was partially funded by the Municipal Climate Change Action Centre (MCCAC). The Alberta Urban Municipalities Association and Rural Municipalities of Alberta, through the MCCAC, offer the Alberta Municipal Solar Program that provides funding to install grid-tied solar PV systems on municipal facilites or land to save on energy costs and reduce the environmental impact of electricity use. You can visit the website for more information at:  mccac.ca/programs/alberta-municipal-solar-program

 

 

"The Village of Hill Spring is very excited for the completion of the 125 KW solar project. The Municipal Climate Change Action Center has been very helpful during the course of this project and without their support, this project would not have been possible.  Due to the cost of electricity and transmission fees, being able to install solar will greatly reduce electricity costs to Village owned buildings which in turn benefits the local  residents and allows tax dollars to be utilized on other priorities in the Village.  Thank you to all who helped to make this happen!"

~ Village of Hill Spring Mayor, Dwight Davis
