Spring 2018 - Initial Grant and Installation: In Spring of 2018, St. Paul's applied for and received an EcoSity Edmonton and Alberta Ecotrust Grant to support the installation of Solar panels. As part of this initiative, St. Paul's also took part in hosting and presenting at public solar workshops for those interested in learning more about sustainable solar energy.
Fall 2019 Update: The St Paul’s Solar PV Generation project has been a great success! In our first full year, St. Paul's has saved over $2800 in electric energy costs, and significantly reduced our greenhouse gas emissions.
