Customer representative comments:
We are very pleased to have had Dandelion Renewables install the 64-panel ground array solar photovoltaic system at the Regional District of East Kootenay’s Wycliffe Exhibition Grounds. The managers and field crew were professional, hard-working and knowledgeable. They provided timely, detailed communication when responding to questions and updating on the progress of the solar installation. It was a pleasure working with Dandelion Renewables and I would recommend their services and hire them again.

Another Alberta town takes advantage of the funding provided through the Alberta Municipal Solar Program. The Town of Viking, Alberta, is aiming to produce a majority of its municipal electrical needs using solar energy. Following the Town of Raymond, Viking will become the second municipality in Alberta to be net-zero.
Viking town council initially considered solar photovoltaic systems on multiple sites but ultimately decided on one large ground-mounted solar PV system. By consolidating the project into one location, the town will receive greater benefit from the solar funding program.
Our team at Dandelion Renewables is well into the installation phase of the ground-mounted project, covering almost six acres of swampy prairie land. The transformation of a once boggy grazing field into a renewable energy solar power plant, just east of Viking, is projected to be completed this coming spring of 2020.
A total of 2880 ground-mounted solar modules will provide the town with 1.05MW of power. That is enough energy to power 215 average Albertan households year-round!
Stay tuned for progress pictures and updates over the next weeks and months!
