Have you heard? With Energy Efficiency Alberta’s (EEA) Residential and Commercial Solar Program you can save up to 30% of eligible costs when installing solar photovoltaic (PV) systems!

According to the Government of Alberta, by 2019, the program is expected to:

  • Support the creation of 900 jobs in Alberta’s solar sector
  • Cut solar installation costs by up to 30 per cent for residences
  • Cut solar installation costs by up to 25 per cent for businesses and non-profits
  • Reduce greenhouse gas emissions in the province by about half a million tonnes—the equivalent of taking 100,000 passenger vehicles off the road

For more information on how you can start converting to solar powered energy in your home you can visit this link: (https://www.efficiencyalberta.ca/solar/). There is even an information session in Edmonton at the University of Alberta on July 19th.

As part of the Mature Neighbourhood Overlay (MNO) Review, the City of Edmonton has made changes to MNO regulations after holding multiple public consultation events with residents, community leagues, and the home building industry. These new rules provide clearer direction for residents living or building in mature neighbourhoods, including making it easier to determine front setbacks (the distance between the home and the street), driveway access and privacy regulations.

We are so excited to share this new feature on remax.ca with you! One of the most important factors for families when buying a new home is the school their children will attend. Whether you are picking a certain area because of a specific school or fall in love with a community and need to know what school options you have, remax.ca has you covered! The new School Tool simply allows you to search an area, see all of the schools in that community, view the boundaries for said school AND shows you all the homes for sale in that particular area. You can even link directly to the school website, in case you need more information.

Looking to conserve energy and lower your home bills? The Government of Alberta has released details on the new Energy Efficient Alberta program with the goal of “making life more affordable for Alberta families by helping them conserve energy through the latest innovations, such as LED lights and power bars”.


Alberta residents who register for the Residential No-Charge Energy Savings Program will be contacted starting in April for an appointment which will look at ways to change out older, less energy efficient products in their home and replace them with new more efficient options such as LED products, high efficiency shower heads, faucet aerators, advanced power bars and self adjusting thermostats.


The best part? These changes should save you money on your monthly energy bills and the program is FREE! Any household in Alberta is eligible for the program, your income and house type do not matter whatsoever.
