As technology (and prices) continue to improve, residential properties, individual installations and community projects will likely become more common. That means just like with wind development, we need people to build these solar installations!

Companies like TriMac Engineering, C2 Solar, and Fundy Engineering have ongoing projects across Atlantic Canada, and various First Nations groups are investing in solar projects.

Because solar power can be so intermittent, it's challenging for Atlantic Canadian utilities to consider it as a main energy solution. But solar power still has a place in our region's energy future as we work towards providing clean baseload generation to projects like clean hydrogen, and our electricity grid.
