"We have heard directly from students from across Alberta and their message is clear -- they want us to be leaders on climate change," Minister of Education David Eggen said in a statement.

The provincial government said total investments in solar power installations at 36 school projects will be at least $6.7 million. Costs vary by district and project. - wind solar hybrid system

Alberta's government issued a request in early October for information on the potential costs and the best way forward toward using solar power for half of government operations. Three contracts to power government-owned buildings are on the books, but two of those are set to expire before the end of 2017.-30kw solar power system
