See yourself in Solar at the Calgary Home + Design Show

Join The City of Calgary at the Home + Design Show at the BMO Centre, September 19 – 22.  In support of promoting renewable energy sources and lowering greenhouse gas emissions in the community, we are hosting SolarUP! - a solar showcase.

SolarUP! will light up the entrance to the tradeshow with a variety of engaging exhibits and solar demonstration trailers.

Installing solar is easier than you think. New requirements for Solar Collector permits are now in place as part of a redesign to improve and expedite the permit and inspection process as part of the Cut Red Tape Initiative.

So join us and warm up to ideas for solar in your home.  You’ll even have a chance to win a solar charger for your electronics.

2013 is solar’s time to shine.


  1. Calgary continues to outshine many Canadian municipalities in their embrace of Alternative energy sources for the home owner and in particular the promotion of Solar Energy. Very proud to have my old home town so innovative and forward thinking in their interaction with the people of the city- Walter Andreeff, Chairman of the Canadian Solar Cities Project

  2. When I finally get the opportunity to build my home I will be using solar panels. It just seems like a win-win when it comes to saving money, and at times earn money.
