Sell Carbon Offset Credits for solar in Alberta

Here's what you need to know.

In Alberta, solar panels create carbon offsets when they are connected to the electricity grid by displacing grid electricity that is produced with fossil fuels.

Re(source) Energy turns these carbon offsets into carbon offset credits (a.k.a. carbon credits) that are sold in Alberta's regulatory carbon market.

Re(source) gives you the ability to create and receive payments from carbon offset credits with your solar panels and takes care of this process for you.

All you have to do is sign up using the form below and you will receive yearly payments for your carbon offset credits while your solar panels are turned on and connected to the electricity grid.

This additional income helps pay off the cost of your solar panels faster and can be used in conjunction with the Greener Homes Grant/Loan, the Solar Club, and the Clean Energy Improvement Program (CEIP).

The price of carbon in Canada is federally and provincially mandated to increase by $15 every year until it reaches $170 per tonne of carbon dioxide equivalent (t CO2e) in 2030. See the pricing schedule here.

This means the value of the carbon offset credits your solar panels create will increase as we approach 2030.
