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.

The Town of Viking Shoots for Net-Zero on Municipal Buildings

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!

Owner Comments

Dandelion Renewables has great technical expertise but what I appreciated was their willingness to take the time to translate the Solar and Energy Efficiency World into an assessable language. Riverdale appreciated the time spent ensuring our community understood all aspects of our solar gazebo system. Dandelion provided us abundant free education and provided a turnkey service completing all grant applications on our behalf. They were quick to answer any question by phone and email.  It was a joy to work with such a knowledgeable company. They helped boost Riverdale’s passion for solar technology. When you hire Dandelion you are hiring a knowledgeable partner happy to go the extra mile to create a cleaner environment.

Thanks so much for your good work on our behalf this year. It has been a pleasure to get acquainted with you my Russian friend! I greatly appreciate your attention to detail, and to being sure the project was done right. I have not hesitated to recommend you to several neighbours and other visitors to the farm that have asked about the system. We also feel sure we would not have been awarded the Growing Forward grant without your assistance. Thanks for your diligence in that as well.

Owner Comments

This is something we have wanted to do for quite some time and thanks to Mikhail’s diligence and understanding we discovered the financial incentives available through an Alberta Government grant program and after approval, the installation was on our part effortless! Mikhail and his team of hard-working, energetic builders came here to our farm and installed this wonderful system. They thoroughly followed through and tended to every possible technicality. The system runs smoothly and every sunny day we find joy in watching our graph and the energy we are contributing to the grid. Incidentally, we also can notice and change our habits when our consumption seems high. The instant feedback, so we act accordingly. Dandelion Renewables has made it easy to “be the change” we want to see in this world.
