The Renfrew Solar Garden is a project currently being evaluated by the Renfrew Community Association along with help from the City of Calgary and their partners.
Renfrew was awarded a grant from the application to the Energy Efficiency Alberta - Community Generation Capacity Building program. Proceeds from this grant will be going into community engagement and feasibility studies for the creation of a solar array in or near the neighbourhood. Exact location, size and orientation is currently unknown and will be determined from execution of studies under the grant. The target size of the array is 1 megawatt (about the size of a hockey rink).
In 2019 several open houses we be hosted that engage the community with the project. Results of studies will be presented and community investment will be encouraged.
