A micro-generation customer owns a device that converts energy from one form into electrical energy. This could be any renewable energy, most often being solar in Alberta.
Did you know that Albertans are permitted to generate their own electricity from renewable or alternative energy sources for their property? You can be either a Small Micro-Generator or a Large Micro-Generator. Once you exceed 5,000 kW capacity or intend to earn revenue from the electric power generated, you are considered a commercial-sized generator.
There are tons of benefits to generating your own energy. Producing your own power will offset some of the energy your property needs to draw from the grid, resulting in a lower bill and more money in your pocket. Plus, by choosing to generate from a renewable source, your micro-generator will help protect the environment.
