Earn Solar Carbon Credit Payments


Re(source) Energy

Carbon offset credit development for owners of solar power (solar PV) systems in Alberta, Canada

In Alberta, carbon offsets, carbon credits, and emission offsets are the same.

Re(source) Energy gives your solar PV system the ability to create carbon credits that are sold in Alberta's regulatory carbon market.

With Re(source), you will receive annual payments for the solar electricity you produce in exchange for your solar carbon credits.

Is my solar PV system eligible to create carbon credits with Re(source) Energy?

The solar PV system is eligible if: 

The micro-generator must not have relinquished or waived ownership of their emissions reductions or renewable energy attributes in the form of Renewable Energy Certificates (RECs), one of the grants/funding programs in this list, or other instruments. Check out our onboarding guide for details.

How does the Re(source) solar carbon offset credit platform work?

Re(source) Energy is a carbon offset development company that gives owners of grid-tied solar power systems (solar PV or solar panels) under 5 megawatts (<5,000 kW / <5 MW) the ability to create carbon offset credits in Alberta. We also facilitate the sale of these carbon offset credits to buyers in Alberta’s carbon market.

The value of the carbon offset credits created by a particular solar PV system depends on a variety of factors but with Re(source), a 10 kW capacity system may create around ~$6,221.74 in carbon offsets over the length of our standard 9 year term. A fixed 10 year term and an 8 year term with a 5 year extension option are also available.

Re(source) then takes an administration fee of 30% or less of the total net profit from the sale price of the created carbon offset credits. 

This will result in the owner of the solar PV system receiving annual payments that will total to at least ~$4,202.67 at the end of the 9 year term (2024-2032).

How much would I make by selling my solar carbon credits through Re(source)?
